Record breaking cold possible overnight; breezy, chance of snow showers today

    Cold now? Just wait until Friday morning.

    High temperatures today will be 15 to 20 degrees below normal, according to a forecast discussion issued by the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly, NJ. But with a gusty northwest wind increasing through the afternoon hours — potentially gusting up to 35-40 mph — it will feel even colder.

    Snow showers are possible throughout the region this afternoon, with the greatest chance in northern areas. A quick coating to an inch is possible, according to the National Weather Service. 

    Then overnight, some locations could approach record breaking low temperatures, with readings 20 to 25 degrees below normal and wind chills in the single digits to below zero through tomorrow morning, the National Weather Service advises.
