The Garden state is seeing some nice weather Friday afternoon...
Skies will be partly to mostly sunny for the rest of the day with highs in the 60s for NYC, Long Island, and coastal New Jersey, and inland locations reaching 70-75 degrees.
Tonight turns partly cloudy, with lows falling mainly into the 50s.
** More certainty for the weekend weather system, but with some details still needed to be determined. **
Saturday is expected to start with some sun, with clouds arriving in the afternoon. It will be dry for central and northern NJ, NYC and Long Island. A few showers may arrive for southern sections of the Garden state by evening. Temperatures top out between 60 and 65 degrees for the coast, and around 70 for inland areas.
Saturday night should be mostly cloudy, with a few scattered showers possible. Low temperatures drop into the 50s for most areas once again.
Sunday continues with mainly cloudy skies. The day is not expected to be a wash-out, but some showers will be around for the afternoon. Temperatures reach between 65 and 70 degrees inland, and in the lower 60s along the shore.
More showers are likely for Sunday night, along with temperatures in the 50s.
Next week, the area will be near a frontal boundary, separating very warm, summer-like air, and cooler spring temperatures. It is difficult to determine the exact placement of this weather feature at this time, and the chances for rain from it.
In general showers and thundershowers can be expected each afternoon for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Temperatures will be highest in the southern NJ, with 80 degrees likely, and coolest for coastal areas of NJ, as well as Long Island and NYC, where highs may not get out of the 60s.
Future weather data will determine a more accurate forecast.
