New Jerseyans bundled up against a blast or arctic air that left temperatures in single digits or below zero today.

Thermometers registered nine degrees below zero in Andover and minus six degrees in Sussex before dawn. The wind chill made it feel like four below zero in Newark.

Temperatures were in the single digits in Somerville, Wall, Toms River and Morristown.

While New Jerseyans bundle up against the cold, forecasters are trying to determine whether another snowstorm will hit the state.

The National Weather Service says the potential exists for a winter storm on Wednesday.

The current projection calls for a mix of snow and rain along with gusty winds. However, the track of the storm could change the type and amount of precipitation.
