New Jersey faces evening of strong winds, frigid temperatures


TRENTON, New Jersey — Light snow and flurries are ending after leaving some slick spots in parts of New Jersey.

The snow caused little more than a dozen schools to delay opening.

Friday's precipitation will set the stage for a bone-chilling evening as strong winds combine with frigid temperatures.

The National Weather Service is issuing a wind advisory for the state from Friday afternoon to early Saturday morning.

Forecasters say northwest winds of 20 to 30 mph could gust as high as 50 mph.

The wind and single digit temperatures could make it feel like it's 15 to 20 degrees below zero in parts of the state.

Forecasters also are predicting the chance for more snow on Sunday night into Monday.
