Code Blue Is No April Fool’s Joke

Despite signs of spring, temperatures are expected to drop below freezing on Thursday and Fright nights, making for dangerous conditions for those who are sleeping outdoors.

Cape May Court House — The Cape May County Office of Emergency Management advises all municipalities that Cape May County will be under “Code Blue” severe weather advisory effective from:

Thursday, April 1, 2021 from 6:00 pm to Friday, April 2, 2021 6:00 am
Friday, April 2, 2021 from 6:00 pm to Saturday, April 3, 2021 6:00 am

Code Blue conditions are in effect when the temperature reaches 32 degrees Fahrenheit or below.
