EDISON - Temperatures are expected to rise across the Garden State for the remainder of the week.

News 12 New Jersey Meteorologist Dave Curren says temperatures dip into the upper 20s and lower 30s overnight, and won't be as cold as nights past. Thursday temperatures during the day will hit the mid 50s across most of New Jersey. Mostly clear skies are expected into Friday as temperatures dip to the high 30s.

Curren says the warming trend will continue into the end of this week with plenty of sunshine and pleasant highs in the 60s for Friday.
