EDISON - Bone-chilling cold temperatures continue across the Garden State.

News 12 New Jersey Meteorologist Dave Curren says record cold temperatures were felt in New Jersey Tuesday, and it's not over yet.

In Trenton, a 102-year-old record was broken with a low of 2 degrees.

Curren says overnight lows will be in the single digits and sub-zero wind chills are expected for most of the state, as low as 20 below zero in spots.

Wednesday will be mostly sunny and cold with highs in the upper 20s.

Officials are urging everyone to limit their time outside if possible and dress in warm layers. They say frostbite and hypothermia is possible in a short period of time.

The weekend will be warmer as temps soar to the upper 40s.
