Pleasant days ahead

    Do you like the current taste of autumn? Temperatures overnight in extreme northwest NJ dropped down into the 30s, while it remained relatively warmer at the coast. At 9 a.m., temperatures range from 46 degrees at Blue Lake Mountain to 64 degrees in Point Pleasant.

    It’s sunny, dry, breezy, and downright comfortable. With the Canadian high pressure system dominating today, high temperatures will only be around 70 degrees throughout the state. Some happy little clouds will be around. Cool again tonight. Tomorrow will be another bright day and slightly warmer, with highs in the mid to upper 70s. On Sunday, as a cold front approaches, a few more clouds will be around, and there’s a slight chance of precipitation, but overall it will be a decent day.

    BOAT/BEACH: The ocean will be warmer than the air all day, so be sure to have your towel ready. With a northeast wind at 5-10 mph, you may also want to bring a sweatshirt. Breakers and ocean swells are running about two to three feet. There is a low risk of rip currents, but with lifeguards now off-duty at most beaches, exercise extreme caution.
