After a cold snap Tuesday and Wednesday, mild weather returns

    A cold blast is on the way tonight, lasting through Wednesday. With the exception of some snow showers north and west overnight, a dry week is on tap. We’ll warm beginning Thursday.

    We’ll remain relatively mild today, with mostly sunny skies and high temperatures in the mid-upper 40s north, low-mid 50s south. This image is from around 10:00 a.m. today in Loch Arbour, courtesy of TheSurfersView.com.

    But cold air will arrive late tonight in conjunction with a Canadian cold front, with high temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday in the low 40s. Expect some clouds Tuesday morning and possibly some flakes for everyone, clearing during the afternoon, and mostly sunny conditions on Wednesday. Overnight lows each day will be mainly in the 20s (possibly upper teens in the higher elevations and around 30 at the coast).

    The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for the higher elevations in New Jersey, where snow showers are expected late Monday night. “Any accumulations should be an inch or less and mainly confined to higher terrain,” the statement notes.

    The cold snap will be short-lived, with mild weather returning Thursday. High temperatures will climb from the low 50s on Thursday to around 60 on Sunday. Expect mostly sunny skies through Saturday, with precipitation possible on Sunday.
