It was cold last weekend!

How cold was it?

It was so cold, that a number of locations in New Jersey broke decades old and in one case a century old record!

The National Weather Service office in Mt. Holly, which covers the southern half of New Jersey, reported new record lows in both Trenton and Atlantic City.

In Trenton, thermometers hit a new historic low for January 7th of -2 degrees. The previous record was +2, which was set in 2014.

The story gets even more historic in Atlantic City, where the NWS recorded an official temperature of -3 degrees, smashing a 134 year old record of +4 set way back in 1884.

The New York office of the National Weather Service noted a tied record for Newark, with a comparatively steamy +6 degrees, equaling the low temperature that was hit in 1996.

The good news is that we'll see warmer temperatures over the next few days, at least compared to the ridiculous lows that we got over the weekend. You can of course keep up with the latest right here at WOBM.com!
