PERTH AMBOY - Tonight temperatures are expected to drop across New Jersey, but higher temperatures are expected this weekend.

Temperatures are expected to warm up to 40 degrees on Saturday and Sunday, which will feel balmy after the icy spell that New Jersey has been under.

For now, New Jersey is dealing with icy blasts of winter. News 12 New Jersey spoke to people about how they are dealing with the ongoing deep freeze.

At Mercedes Café in Perth Amboy, customers were coming in for cups of hot coffee, cappuccino and espresso. Some say they've just been piling on layers in effort to stay warm.

Dr. Rayshma Ali, of Raritan Bay Medical Center's Emergency Department, also spoke to News 12 New Jersey about how hypothermia would be treated, which is a major concern when temperatures plunge as low as they have been.
