Snow squalls could potentially coincide with the arrival of bitterly cold temperatures on Wednesday, forecasters say.
Arctic air will overspread the Jersey Shore region beginning Wednesday afternoon and continuing through the evening hours, according to the National Weather Service.
Temperatures will drop from around 32 degrees to the single digits at night, according to NOAA.
The National Weather Service is concerned about snow squalls ushering in the extreme cold.
“Reduced visibilities and quick coatings of snowfall are possible at times through the day with any squalls,” an advisory warns.
With wind chills likely sub-zero on Wednesday night and Thursday, forecasters warn about a heightened risk for hypothermia and frostbite.
High temperatures on Thursday won’t likely rise above the teens.
