EDISON - Temperatures are expected to rise this weekend and reach the 40-degree mark.

Winds will be between 10-20 mph.

News 12 New Jersey Meteorologist Dave Curren says that it's a pleasant break from the snow and cold we have endured this winter season.

Possible rain showers on Monday will briefly bring temps back down to the middle 30s. This short-lived cool down will be tempered with the arrival of milder air this time next week.
