Breaking the heat: Alan’s weather blog
Wednesday's high temperatures were right on the money in the low to mid 90s.
It was 95 in Toms River and at Atlantic City International Airport, which broke the record of 93 set back in 1962.
It was basically as warm at the beaches with a west wind holding off any sea breeze.
We've already had some heavy showers and thunder moving across the state. We have another risk of a shower, possibly thunder, this morning. Showers this afternoon may tend to taper off in places, especially Central and North Jersey. A few highs today will be in the low 80s, none of the 90 degree plus stuff.
It'll be cooler at the beaches.
Clear skies returning during the night with some lows in the 50s, but low 60s or so in urban and coastal areas.
Sunny, pleasant and beautiful Friday with very low humidity. It'll be about as nice as it can get, 80 or so, but cooler near the ocean.
However, a disturbance riding the jet stream may produce some clouds that may lead Saturday to the chance of a few showers in South Jersey, if anywhere at all. Highs will be from 77 to 82.
Some sunshine returning Sunday in the low 80s, but cooler again near the water.
The surf temps are in the mid to upper 60s.
