Dave’s Forecast: Warmer temperatures stick around through Saturday; tracking Sunday rain
Record warmth this afternoon, and it's possible we see more records fall on Friday and Saturday. How do those pumpkin-spiced lattes taste now?
Daytime high temperatures soared to the upper-70s and lower-80s Thursday afternoon. Newark Liberty International Airport saw its high-temperature record fall at 2:45 p.m. when the mercury in the thermometer reached 82.4 degrees. The old record was 79 degrees set back in 1964.
And the heat just keeps on coming:
FRIDAY: Record of 81 degrees set in 1963. The forecasted temperature is also 81 degrees.
SATURDAY: Record of 82 degrees set in 1984. The forecasted temperature is 80 degrees.
Both days by the way will be gorgeous with sunny skies and dry conditions.
SUNDAY: The conditions change. For the eighth consecutive weekend at least one day will feature measurable rainfall. And that weather system will flip the switch on the temperature forecast too. From the 70s and 80s to the 40s and 50s.
A swift 20-25 degree drop as Canadian air follows the rain. And this cool air looks to stick around for a bit. The upcoming week looks to be mostly dry, but temperatures will barely reach the 60s.
