Long before they can begin to worry about next week’s potential snowfall, Friday morning’s commuters and school children will have to be concerned with below-zero wind chills instead.

No records, but still cold

While the all-time Feb. 28 cold temperature of 2 degrees seems safe, sunrise wind chill values are going to be much colder, according to the National Weather Service Mount Holly Forecast Center.

Though the polar vortex remains parked over Canada’s Hudson Bay, its far-reaching effects will be felt across the Northeast, Middle Atlantic, Great Lakes and Midwest states on Friday, Feb. 28.

South Jersey sunrise temperature very cold

At sunrise at 6:33 a.m. Friday, Feb. 28, the South Jersey mainland temperature will have dropped to about 5-7 degrees above zero, according to National Weather Service forecast.

But thanks to a 15-to-20-mph northwest wind, the air will feel like it is around 7 below, the Weather Service said.

Friday afternoon highs

Friday’s cold start will lead to a cold day with a South Jersey mainland high temperature of 23 degrees, about 25 degrees colder than normal for Feb. 28.

Gusty conditions will keep wind chills below zero for much of the time.
