Dark and chilly today, clearing out tonight

    It’s a chilly morning throughout the Garden State. Showers are moving through portions of South Jersey, to the north, it’s cloudy but dry. All areas will clear tonight, and the weather looks mainly sunny and cool straight through the weekend.

    The best chance of precipitation today is in South Jersey. It’s currently dry in Ocean City, where this image was snapped at about 10:00 via TheSurfersView.com. There’s a chance of showers for everyone, but the farther north you go, the least likely you’ll get wet. If you’re around I-195 and to the south, showers are more likely. High temperatures will only be in the low to mid 50s today.

    Canadian high pressure begins to move into the region tonight, and depending on wind speeds, the National Weather Service advises that patchy frost is possible for counties generally to the northwest of the NJ Turnpike. A Freeze Watch is in effect for Warren County, and a Freeze Warning is in effect for Sussex County. So the growing season is on its last legs.

    For tomorrow, sun and some clouds, and blustery, with a gusty west wind. High temperatures will once again be in the low to mid 50s, but it’ll feel even cooler with the wind. Similar high temperatures for Thursday and Friday. Mostly sunny both days. Nights will be chilly Wednesday through Friday.

    But we’ll begin to warm a bit for the weekend, with high temperatures expected to climb back to the upper 50s. Mainly sunny both days, although there could be a few more clouds Sunday.
