With mostly cloudy skies this morning temperatures are nearly 15 degrees warmer than this time yesterday with readings in the lower 20s. The coldest readings in New Jersey are in the southern part of the state that have fresh snowpack.
Today will be partly sunny with highs about five degrees warmer than yesterday reaching the upper 30s which is still below normal for this time of year. Clouds will increase towards evening with a slight chance of some flurries.
Thursday will be mostly sunny but a little colder as high pressure builds from the north.
Milder weather Friday through early next week with little or no precipitation expected which is good news as we can have a slow melt of our existing snowpack.
Looking at the long range it appears winter is not done yet as some of the computer models are showing a snowstorm around the 14th, of course this too far in the future especially seeing what eventually happened from the last storm the models indicating only a couple of days in advance.
