Surprised parents, schoolchildren and Monday morning commuters awoke to surprisingly warm temperatures in the mid-50s n Jan. 6.

However, that won’t be the case about 24 hours later, according to the National Weather Service, which issued a wind child advisory for all of South Jersey, Delaware, and eastern Maryland and Pennsylvania.

The advisory is in effect from 1 a.m. to noon Tuesday, Jan. 7. 

South Jersey's dangerous cold and wind

The National Weather Service forecast says extremely cold overnight temperatures on the South Jersey mainland are expected to fall to about 8 degrees or colder during the bus stop hours Tuesday, Jan. 7.

Combined with winds that could range from 20-25 mph, the temperature will feel more like 10 to 15 degrees below zero.

“Prolonged exposure could lead to hypothermia and frostbite,” the National Weather Service said.

Everyone should limit their time outdoors, the National Weather Service advised.

The rapid temperature cool down on Monday could be quick enough to turn the back edge of today’s rain into a period of a dusting of snow, according to the National Weather Service.

Luckily, the current 15-day European Center for Medium range Weather Forecasting weather outlook shows this to be the last snowfall until at least Jan. 21.

January thaw

If you’ve had enough of the New Year’s frigid start, next week could provide relief. Starting with Saturday, Jan. 11, temperatures across South Jersey are expected to reach the 50s for several days.
