EDISON - After a rainy morning, skies began to clear across New Jersey with temperatures warming up.

News 12 New Jersey Meteorologist Dave Curren says the temperatures rapidly warming could cause unstable atmosphere which could lead to scattered thunderstorms in parts of the state for Tuesday afternoon and evening.

Wednesday is expected to be mostly cloudy with chances of scattered thunderstorms. High temperatures could reach 85 degrees.

The skies should clear partly on Thursday, bringing out some sunshine. High temperatures are expected to be in the low 80s.
