Single-digit overnight temperatures will give way to a high just around freezing Saturday, with some snow and rain in the picture as well, prompting a winter weather advisory to be placed into effect.

Saturday, the 2015 Polar Plunge Day in Seaside Heights, will see temperatures rising from single-digits in the morning to a high of 34 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. Bands of snow will move in after 12 noon, the NWS forecast says, with accumulations of 1-3 inches possible before the precipitation mixes with rain in the evening hours.

By 10 p.m. Saturday, the mix will turn to all rain as the temperature rises to 41 degrees by 1 a.m. Sunday. South winds will increase to 11-18 m.p.h. On Sunday, a chance of rain will remain, with a high near 40. Morning clouds and rain showers will give way to mostly sunny skies in the afternoon, the NWS forecast said.
