Winter-like temperatures will be returning to New Jersey by the end of the weekend.
Storm Watch Team Meteorologist Dave Curren says that temperatures could drop into the 20s by the end of the weekend.
Friday night will see clear to partly cloudy skies with temperatures dipping into the mid-40s.
Curren says that some squalls are expected on Saturday. He says that Saturday will start off with some clouds and sunshine, but a rain shower or storm could come out of seemingly nowhere. Ice pellets or hail are possible during these storms. Curren says that Saturday won’t be a washout, but the weather won’t be very spring-like. Daytime highs will be in the low-50s, with overnight lows dipping into the low-40s.
Sunday will see cloudy skies, with some sunshine. Temperatures will only reach the upper-40s. Gusty winds will be drawing in the colder Canadian air. Wind gusts could reach up to 30 mph. Overnight temperatures will dip into the mid-30s.
Monday is expected to see winter-like temperatures. Curren says that morning lows will be in the teens and 20s. Windy weather could make conditions feel as if they are in the single digits. Daytime highs will reach the upper-30s, with overnight lows around 24 degrees.
Tuesday is expected to see mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will remain cooler in the mid-40s. Some clouds are expected. Overnight lows will be in the upper-30s.
Temperatures should warm into the 50s by the end of next week.
