Just before 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 17, the Jersey Shore area experienced a rapid inbound marine layer ahead of a cold front. With temperatures reaching about 60 degrees, the cooler air brought in thick fog and high winds as it interacted the warmth in place, as well as the cold water temperatures in the ocean and Barnegat Bay.
We sped up our cameras and headed to Ortley Beach to capture what we thought was a cool view, and we hope you enjoy.

GOOD FRIDAY MORNING… It's windy. It's wet. It's warm. And this morning's worst weather is coming up. A squall line is expected to roll across NJ around 4am-8am. That will produce one last burst of rain. And likely the biggest wind gusts of the day, with 50+ mph is possible. pic.twitter.com/gkqVPud9my
