A vigorous cold front that could deliver between 1 and 1.5 inches of rain on Tuesday could also cause temperatures to drop more than 30 degrees tomorrow and deliver a wintery chill not seen since … well ... last month.

Here’s the latest:

Wintery Wednesday on tap?

According to the National Weather Service, Wednesday morning lows could drop to 34 degrees in mainland Atlantic County, but into the upper 20s in Salem, Gloucester and Cumberland counties along with the western portion of Cape May County.

That’s a drop of 34 degrees from the forecast high of 68 degrees Tuesday at the Atlantic City International Airport.

As a result, the National Weather Service Mount Holly Forecast Center has issued a freeze watch for Tuesday night into Wednesday morning for those areas.

After the rain passes, the sun is expected to return on Wednesday to warm things up to a March-like 51 degrees.

Smile; Memorial Day is only 42 days away.
