If you thought it was cold today, just wait for tomorrow morning. Wind chill temperatures in the single digits will challenge early morning commuters, school children and anyone else who ventures outdoors around the time of sunrise on Friday, Dec. 13.

The National Weather Service Mount Holly Forecast Center said overnight lows in the middle teens or colder combined with a 10-mph wind will push wind chill readings into the single digits for most of the South Jersey mainland.

Wind chill readings along the shore and the bayside will be a few degrees warmer, but still fairly frigid at 12 degrees.

The cold is almost over, the National Weather Service said.

After most of South Jersey could only muster up a temperature in the upper 20s on Thursday, Dec. 12, the thermometer could climb a few degrees above freezing on Friday.

Look for Friday’s high temperatures to reach up into the middle to upper 30s with the warmer readings along the shore, the National Weather Service said.

Temperatures will march up into the 40s on Saturday as a storm system moves through the area. Any morning snow should quickly change to rain which will fall throughout the day.
