    Temperatures will be well above normal during the next two days at the Jersey Shore, reaching potentially record levels tomorrow.

    A southerly flow through tomorrow will be delivering the warm air.  

    Temperatures will rise to around 60 degrees today, dropping to a low around 50 degrees overnight, according to NOAA. By tomorrow, highs will be even warmer, topping out in the middle 60s.

    They’ll generally range between 15 and 20 degrees above normal tomorrow. 

    The record high for Atlantic City is 69 degrees, set in 1965. The current forecast does not call for temperatures that warm.

    But the National Weather Service expects tomorrow’s high temperature to eclipse the 62 degrees record high in Trenton, which was set in 1933.

    Then snow is likely to develop Thursday morning after transitioning over from rain, causing slippery travel for the morning commute before ending during the early afternoon.

    The National Weather Service is forecasting a general one to four inches for the Jersey Shore, with the highest accumulations away from the coast and the potential for more should the storm over-perform. 

    But details remain uncertain and will likely come into better focus later today.
