Chilly temperatures persist on this Thursday, although we lose the pesky snow squalls that some of us in New Jersey experienced briefly on Wednesday.

Thursday will be a sunny day across the great Garden State, with high temperatures in the mid- to upper 30s. Overnight, lows return to about where they were Wednesday night, the mid- to upper 20s, with skies remaining clear and any winds diminishing throughout the course of the evening.

On Friday, we begin a very unseasonable warm stretch. That does bring clouds with it to start, and light rain or drizzle in North Jersey, but highs will be in the upper 40s to mid-50s.

It gets even warmer Saturday and Sunday, although not entirely pleasant. Saturday looks like a rainy and breezy day, but temperatures will reach all the way into the upper 50s to mid-60s — remember, it'll be January 11th!

That temperature range remains in play for most of the day on Sunday, though falling by late-day ... but the sun comes back out by Sunday afternoon as well.
