The potential for drizzle remains Wednesday evening, but daytime hours on Wednesday will usher in an otherwise dry forecast that brings with it steadily increasing sun — and heat — all the way into next week.

Wednesday begins with clouds, but sun breaks through later in the day, with highs in the mid-60s all across New Jersey. Drizzle and fog are once more a part of the story in the evening and overnight hours, with clouds rolling in as well, and lows in the 50s.

On Thursday, those clouds will dissipate once more, leading to late sunshine, and the temperature heads toward 70 at the peak of the day. That is just a sneak preview of what could be a really glorious late spring, early summer weekend in the Garden State.

Friday looks very sunny, with highs settling in the mid-70s. And as we see it right now, that sunshine will stick around at least through Monday, with top temperatures bumping up by about five degrees a day. That means we could definitely be seeing consistent 80-something marks on Saturday and Sunday, and potentially the upper 80s to start another work week. Enjoy it!

Meteorologist Dan Zarrow will return Thursday, June 8. Patrick Lavery produces "New Jersey's First News" and is New Jersey 101.5's morning drive breaking news reporter.
