NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Low temperature records are falling in New Jersey as bitterly cold wind has temperatures in the low single digits, with wind chills 10 to 20 degrees below zero.

The temperature at Newark Liberty International Airport was 1 degree Friday morning, beating a former record low of 5 degrees. The previous record was set in 1936.

Trenton’s temperature fell to zero around 7:20 a.m. That beats the record low of 6 set in 1936.

The National Weather Service warned of wind chills of 10 to 20 degrees below zero with wind gusts up to 30 mph. A wind chill advisory is in effect until 11 a.m.

Some schools across the state are delaying their start times.

Saturday’s forecast is for temperatures back up to 32 degrees, but with 1-3 inches of snow for much of the state.
