Record warmth on Monday brings people out in droves

Record warmth was found today in Newark (86 degrees) and Trenton (85 degrees), breaking records that have stood since 1955. People around New Jersey were heading outdoors as temps climbed in to the 70s and 80s.

News 12 New Jersey Meteorologist Dave Curren says parts of the state reached almost 90 degrees today.

Down the shore, things were a bit cooler. News 12 New Jersey spoke to some beachgoers who were surprised that temps at the beach were lower than the temps inland by almost 25 degrees. Some even left the beach as soon as they arrived.

Curren says the warm-up is likely to be short-lived as cooler temperatures and rain are expected to move into the state tomorrow.
