A cool, sunny day with rough seas

    It’s a cool late summer morning, with many inland locations still in the 40s, but we’ll warm up to the mid 60s today. With high pressure overhead tonight, temperatures will once again plummet, with the coldest readings (low to mid 30s) in the highest elevations of northwest New Jersey. A Frost Advisory is in effect for Warren and Sussex counties for the overnight hours.

    Daytime temperatures will slowly warm Wednesday through Friday, with mostly sunny conditions and temperatures expected to top out in the mid to upper 70s Friday.

    On Saturday, a cold front is expected to pass through the area, delivering clouds and the chance of showers and thunderstorms. Sunday will be nicer. Temperatures will be in the mid to upper 70s both days.

    BOAT/BEACH: A Small Craft Advisory remains in effect until 6 p.m. today. Winds at the beach are out of the north/northeast at 15 to 20 mph. Breakers and ocean swells are running around four feet. The ocean temperature is in the low 70s. There is a moderate risk of rip currents. Exercise extreme caution.
