    A few strong storms are possible tonight in New Jersey as a cold front sweeps through the region, forecasters say. 

    Widespread precipitation will like stay to the south of New Jersey during the daylight hours, which the National Weather Service says is a new development since forecast models yesterday indicated as different scenario.

    Temperatures will be mild today, with middle to upper 70s inland, middle to upper 60s in northern shore areas, and lower 70s further south. 

    The chance for showers and thunderstorms will begin during the afternoon and increase toward the evening as a cold front associated with a low pressure system approaches the region.

    Some of the thunderstorms could be strong, producing isolated small hail and gusty winds, according to a National Weather Service Hazardous Weather Outlook. 

    Showers will dissipate as the cold front moves offshore during the overnight hours. Clouds will likely linger tomorrow morning, and a stray shower is possible, but skies will gradually clear and become mostly sunny during the afternoon.
