SALISBURY, Md. -- From a sunny 70 degree Sunday to a frosty 18 degree Wednesday night, temperatures across Delmarva are dropping fast as an arctic cold front from the north moves past the peninsula.

But cold weather isn't stopping people from running errands or doing their outdoor jobs in Wicomico County.

In Salisbury, some locals were out grocery shopping including Victoria Dennis who was shopping at the Giant supermarket with her mother and sister.

"We're down to ketchup and mustard," said Dennis jokingly as she shivered and unloaded the groceries into her car. "My mom is tired of buying food for us to eat out so we had to stop at the grocery store after a reluctant two weeks," she said.

At a gas station, Nekeva Stanley braved the cold as she waited for her small sedan to fill up. Stanley said instead of filling up in the morning, when temperatures are expected to be even colder, she opted to stop for gas Wednesday night.

Meanwhile, the Halo Shelter in Salisbury prepared for an evening of keeping women and children warm from the cold as the shelter's day facilities manager told WBOC.

"We're having extended hours today," said Megan Saulsbury. "The men's shelter is open so we try to keep them out of the elements as much as we can," the manager said.

Delmarva can expect Thursday to be the coldest day of the first full week of January, only reaching highs in the low 20s.
