NOW: Temps overnight are seasonable, if not a couple of degrees cooler.
NEXT: The heat is back! Tues is hot - highs in NJ in the 90s. Humidity will make it feel hotter. Strong to severe storms maybe Tue night. Depends still on timing of front. Could be later, after sunset timing and this would help keep severe threat down a touch. If anything pops sooner, could be strong/severe. SPC has slight risk for part of the tri-state area - could impact NW NJ. Front may linger nearby for end of the week - so this part of the forecast may change. Keeping end of week dry for now - with HEAT and storms next weekend, but some uncertainty in timing.
