Dave's forecast: Mid-week warm-up on the horizon; tracking weekend rain
Morning rain and dreary weather are slowly exiting the area. The weather is expected to improve later tonight.
The weather will feel more autumnal tonight and tomorrow. Drier weather is moving in. The skies will clear later tonight and the temperatures will cool. It's slightly cooler than average but feels very pleasant. The normal nighttime low is usually around 60 degrees.
Tuesday is filled with sunshine. A cool, crisp start will then eventually warm to the mid-70s. Wind is from the west-northwest. There might be a breezy moment. Gusts up to 10-15mph. Simply delightful!
A mid-week warm-up is coming. Skies are still filled with sunshine on Wednesday and Thursday. Temperatures respond by flirting with 80 degrees.
Clouds skies are expected for Friday
The weekend looks to see rain moving up from the south. The question is will it be tropical? The weather needs to be watched, and that is exactly what the Storm Watch Team of meteorologists at News12 New Jersey will be doing.
