Anyone planning to usher in the New Year in New York, Philadelphia or New Jersey should dress for some seriously cold weather brought in a strong arctic cold front, the National Weather Service forecasts. Arctic air will begin pushing its way southward from the Canadian prairies on Monday, Dec. 30.

Along the way it will crash temperatures throughout the Great Lakes, Ohio Valley, Northeast and Middle Atlantic States. Temperatures will plummet just in time to create frigid New Year’s Eve weather conditions for holiday partiers.

Wind chills below 20s for South Jersey

Temperatures were forecast to reach the 50s on Saturday, Dec. 28, but drop to the 40s on Sunday, Dec. 29 and settle into the 30s on Tuesday, Dec. 31, the National Weather Service says.

As a result, wind chills along the Jersey Shore could settle around 20 degrees in Ocean City for First Night celebrations.

Philadelphia is colder yet

Wind chill readings will drop into the middle teens in Philadelphia where the SugarHouse Casino will host fireworks displays over the Delaware River at 6 p.m. and again at midnight.

Bundle up to keep warm in Times Square

Finally, wind chill readings in the lower teens will surround the million or so people who will watch the ball drop in Times Square in New York City.
