Same sun, different day on Thursday in NJ
If you liked Wednesday's forecast, and the sunny weather it brought across the Garden State, you'll like Thursday's forecast -- because it's exactly the same.
We again saw temperatures head down toward the freezing mark overnight, perhaps a couple of degrees colder than expected but well within acceptable range. That is leading to another day where clouds are in short supply and the sun definitely is not! Highs on Thursday will again touch the upper 60s, more likely in the upper 50s or even cooler at the Jersey Shore. And once more, there's an occasional wind...not enough to call it "breezy" but potentially reaching 15 mph at times.
Overnight, as with the past two nights, it will turn cold again. Lows will be around 40 at the shore and in the mid-30s inland, with clear skies remaining. For Friday, it's second verse, same as the first: sunny skies, with highs in that upper 50s-lower 60s vicinity. We absolutely could get the same wind and shore-specific elements from Thursday's forecast, but those aren't certain yet. And Saturday should copy both Thursday and Friday as well.
Sunday, the forecast finally varies a little bit, with a few clouds mixing in. Temperatures will start transitioning from seasonably mild to warm, with some lower 70s predicted west of the shore. That tees us up for the beginning of another work week on Monday, and right now dry weather should be sticking around for most of next week, with high temps settling in somewhere between 65 and 75 degrees. Enjoy it!
