High temperatures yesterday reached 49 and 50 degrees; 50 at Newark Liberty Airport. It was a little bit of a surprise. I thought we would only be in the mid 40s.

Today, we will be in the 40s with rain, but also some wet snow around the state, increasingly strong winds, increasing to 25 to 35 with gusts of 40 and 50 MPH.

That means, at least, minor flooding at the time of high tide during mid and late afternoon along the oceanfront and backbays. But, there may be tidal flooding of a worse nature late tonight, at least moderate tidal flooding with temperatures falling into the 30s.

Tonight, it changes to wet snow.  Now, I'm mentioning that, at least, two to four inches with locally higher amounts are possible.  There could certainly be a lot less, especially in southern and coastal counties.  Lows tonight back in the 30s.

Very windy tomorrow with a bit of rain or wet snow around with highs from 38 to 42.

Mostly cloudy and still windy Friday as the storm will be moving away, but not far enough, so that it still can produce a bit of wet snow or light rain on Friday.

It should be much better, finally, over the upcoming weekend.
