TRENTON, N.J. — The bitter cold that has gripped New Jersey in recent weeks is refusing to let go.

Forecasters say high temperatures Saturday will only reach the mid-teens, while low temperatures Saturday night will be around zero for most of the state. And wind chills in most areas will likely range from 5 below zero to 15 below zero.

Conditions won’t get much better in the coming days. The bone-chilling cold will continue Sunday, and a wintry mix of rain, freezing and snow could hit the region Monday.

But temperatures should start to rebound after that, with highs most days in the mid-30s.
