Sunshine alert! Great warm weather across NJ to end July

Expect partly sunny skies for Thursday. An isolated gusty thunderstorm is possible but those chances are low

Areas along and south of I-40 will cool into the low 70s. In fact with highs in the upper 80s to near 90° on Wednesday being the warmest, we're still looking at relatively low humidity levels. A gradual warming trend through the week will bring temperatures back into the middle to upper 80s by Wednesday. Comfortable temperatures remain in place until late in the day on Tuesday. Lows will return to the 60s tonight under clear skies.

Front is to our east early Saturday allowing for high pressure to settle over the area. Expect mostly sunny skies today with lighter winds. We think a sea breeze will keep shoreline highs in the middle 80s.

Things cool down by a few degrees by the end of the week, but we'll re-introduce the chance for some afternoon/evening showers & thunderstorms. Monday should continue the theme, with sunny skies and highs in the mid-80s.

Daytime temperatures for the week will have a high in the low to mid-to-low 80s and nighttime lows will be about 70, the weather service said.

Our best chance for storms will Thursday through Saturday as cold front will slow down and stall to our west.

Friday|More clouds than sun. Sunday is attractive under bright blue skies, and it's more comfortable, with readings warming to the lower and middle 80s.

Saturday and Sunday will be picture flawless compared to the extreme heat and humidity of the last two weeks.
