    Yesterday’s thaw will be short-lived. 

    Temperatures will tumble today following the passage of a strong Arctic cold front, forecasters say.

    At 6 a.m., readings at the Shore range from 34 degrees in Seaside Heights to 40 degrees at the Atlantic City Marina, according Rutgers University’s NJ Weather & Climate Network. 

    By late afternoon, the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly, NJ forecasts temperatures in the 20s at the Shore.

    But it will feel colder, as a brisk northwest wind behind the frontal passage will usher in cold Canadian air, subsiding this evening.

    Overnight temperatures will dip down to the teens along the coast and single digits inland. 

    Light snow is marching along the front and will pass through the Shore this morning. Forecasters expect little to no accumulations. Scattered flurries are possible this afternoon.
