Tuesday will be the final day of the latest sub-freezing cold spell, though Jersey Shore residents will only see one day of relief before the bone-chilling temperatures will return.
Tuesday’s high will be 22, according to the National Weather Service’s office in Mount Holly. The mercury will rise to 38 degrees on Wednesday, but drop back down 15 overnight and only recover to 25 for Thursday’s daytime high. Thursday night will bring more single-digit lows – 8 degrees, specifically – and Friday’s high will only be 23 degrees. The cold is forecast to continue into next weekend, with Saturday’s high reaching just 27 degrees before the freeze breaks again on Sunday, with a forecast high of 38 degrees.
The good news: little to no snow is forecast over the next several days. There is a small chance – 20 percent – of some light snow Thursday, but otherwise, the week will remain dry. The next chance for precipitation will come next Sunday, forecasters are predicting.
