This morning's new record low was 3° colder than the previous record.

That's a frigid day in any month.

In other words, middle autumn will play deep January for a day today.

So, bundle up New Jerseyans because the Arctic air bearing down Saturday morning is challenging decades-old record lows as chilly winds cut across the state.

A forecast low of 17 degrees by nightfall would eclipse the record of 18 degrees set in 1973, Root said, and temperatures are expected to be even colder outside the city, possibly reaching the single digits in parts of northern Berks County.

That would set another record for cold.

After months of planning by the JROTC students, it went off without a hitch and brought the community together for Veterans Day. Chris Walsh, a Marine Corps veteran, former police chief and Casper city councilman, will serve as master of ceremonies.

The average low temperature for the region at this time of year is 38 degrees.

A freeze warning is in effect until 10 a.m.in the northeast and southwest portions of the state as residents start their Saturday with temperatures slowly move out of the 20s. Veterans Day is expected to rebound to 35 degrees, which after Thursday will feel like a balmy late fall day.

The National Weather Service expected the overnight low leading into Friday to drop to 2 below zero. Highs are expected in the mid-30s. By Monday, highs are anticipated to push closer to 40 degrees and may reach as high as 44 degrees Tuesday with a chance for rain showers in the afternoon.

At Sunday's 1 p.m. kickoff between the Buffalo Bills and New Orleans Saints at New Era Field, forecasters call for mostly cloudy skies with a chance for showers and 42 degrees.

The Friday night chill was expected to give way to warmer weather over the weekend and into next week, according to the National Weather Service. A light southerly breeze is forecast.
