red bank, nj, sunsetred bank nj snow deiceWednesday was a day of cold weather that included a breathtaking snow squall and an impressive sunset to the Greater Red Bank Green.

Thursday morning brought bitter cold: at 6:30 a.m., the air was at 3 degrees, and wind made it feel like 16 below zero, according to the National Weather Service.

The cold was expected to linger through Friday, prompting Governor Phil Murphy to warn New Jerseyans to “stay inside” for safety.
