The warmest stretch of warm temperatures New Jersey has experienced so far in Spring will be over soon.

Record high temperatures may be broken today as temperatures are expected to get into the upper 70s, and possibly even into the mid 80s in some areas.

Current Conditions

There is currently a frontal boundary that is stretching across central New Jersey, and will remain nearly stationary into tonight.

To the north of this frontal boundary, you will find a cooler air mass. To the south of this frontal boundary, you will find a warmer air mass.

Northern New Jersey will experience temperatures in the 60s and 70s, and probably will not be breaking any record high temperatures. But southern New Jersey will experience temperatures in the 80s, and may possibly reach record high temperatures.

Storm Prediction Center

The National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center’s Day 1 Convective Outlook has much of New Jersey under a slight risk of severe weather later today. This means that strong thunderstorms may be in store for New Jersey.

This Weekend

A low pressure system is expected to reach our area on Friday. Associated with the low pressure system, is a cold front that is expected to decrease our unseasonably warm temperatures that we have been experiencing so far this week.

But then a high pressure gradually builds in over this weekend, and should return our temperatures back to normal.

Normal temperatures around this time of the year is near 60 degrees. After Friday we should be over with the summer-like temperatures and  return to seasonably spring-like temperatures in the 60s.
