    After a day with mostly sunny skies and temperatures reaching the lower 70s, stormy conditions and record high temperatures are possible tomorrow.

    A southwest flow is currently sending warm air into the region. By tomorrow, temperatures will be well above average into the upper 70s, approaching record highs in some locations (81 degrees at Atlantic City International Airport, set in 2003), according to the National Weather Service. 

    The southwest wind will increase during the morning hours, gusting as high as 24 miles per hour. 

    With warm and humid conditions under partly sunny skies, forecasters expect minimal instability and the chance of a line of showers with embedded thunderstorms with some gusty winds before the front moves offshore during the evening hours. 

    Cooler air arrives tomorrow night. By Friday, with a north-northwest flow, it’ll be dry with temperatures about 20 degrees cooler than tomorrow, according to the National Weather Service. 

    For the weekend, NOAA expects generally fair conditions and high temperatures in the upper 50s. A few showers are possible Sunday.
