CLARK, NJ – A cold weather advisory remains in effect for New Jersey. Temperatures will continue to be below freezing tonight and tomorrow.
On their Facebook page, The New Jersey State Police (NJSP) issued a warning about hazardous wind chills for NJ this evening. Winds are expected between 15- 25 mph, with the potential of gusts up to 40 mph.
The NJSP also offered advice for those traveling tonight. “Make sure you pack blankets, snacks, and bottled water. Charge your phone and pack a flashlight as well. You don't want to breakdown unprepared.
Also, your car burns fuel quicker in the cold temperatures. Don't tempt the fates by playing chicken with your fuel gauge. Don't let your fuel get too low!
Troopers will be out there tonight checking the roadways for broken down vehicles. Should you breakdown, it's better to be prepared while you wait for a trooper or tow service. Have a safe night, and stay warm!”
