High temperatures this weekend reached the upper 70s and low 80s for Saturday, and reached the middle to upper 80s yesterday, which was even higher than we predicted. Newark broke a record set in 1990 of 87 as it reached 88 there. Trenton-Mercer County Airport tied a record of 86 set all the way back in 1939. It was cooler 70s along the beach and boardwalk with a sea breeze yesterday.
Today we'll have sea breezes at the beaches and the temperatures will be right back into the 80s this afternoon. It'll be in the 70s to near 80s near the water with lots of sunshine and reasonably low humidity.
Tonight we'll have some high clouds and some partially clear skies. And we'll some high clouds which will sort of thicken up during the day Tuesday, and maybe become partly to mostly cloudy by late morning or afternoon. And then we'll have some rain and showers.
Now, the GFS forecast model wants to have some showers developing here by as early as later tomorrow night. I think that might be a little bit on the fast side, so I'm probably indicating the first chance of some rain or showers will be late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning in southernmost New Jersey, and then gradually moving through New Jersey pretty quickly on Wednesday.
Wednesday looks pretty wet around here with temperatures in some cases no better than the 60s with a brisk wind off the ocean.
We may come out of a bit on Thursday. We'll have more to say about that in future reports.
