O'Hara says normal temperatures for this time of year feature highs of around 41 degrees and lows of around 26 degrees.

The National Weather Service said wind chills that low can cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes, so people are advised to dress appropriately for the cold.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the Ozarks for Sunday.

Warmer weather could be on the way Tuesday, with forecasts calling for mostly sunny skies and temperatures as high as 42 degrees.

Forecasters say the remaining bands of snow from Thursday's massive coastal storm are expected to move away from New Jersey by 6 or 7 p.m., but strong wind gusts are expected to continue into late Thursday night. "At most, it looks like areas north of I-64 could see 1/2" of snow/sleet accumulation Sunday night through Monday morning.

Precipitation is more likely Friday night, but with warming weather it should fall as rain. Freezing rain could impact travel conditions, so check the condition of roads before departing Monday morning.

Mixed precipitation is expected with ice, snow and sleet accumulations around a tenth of an inch that will result in hard travel conditions.

Highs start climbing Monday, hitting the low 40s and 50s through Wednesday before peaking near 61 on Friday, the weather service said.
