Cold temperatures will linger in New Jersey through next week

The 10-day forecast at has yet to encompass Super Sunday. The window currently available shows that it will be -- drum roll, please -- cold in East Rutherford through next Friday.

There’s no high temperature higher than freezing over the next 10 days. As a result, any of the 12 inches or so of snow that fell on Tuesday will have to be moved or artificially melted.

And more snow could be coming, twice.

The current forecast calls for a 40-percent chance of snow on Saturday the 25th, followed by a 60-percent chance of snow on Friday the 31st.

A sudden heat wave is unlikely for February 2, when Punxsutawney Phil emerges from his lair in the morning and Pascagoula Peyton suits up for several hours of football under the nighttime New Jersey sky.
