Slow warming trend begins Thursday, then cold returns Sunday

    Asta Riporti captured this Long Branch sunrise shot last week. Temperatures at 9 a.m. range from 24 at High Point to 39 in Point Pleasant.

    We’re still dealing with below normal temperatures, with highs in the upper 40s to around 50 today. We’ll slowly warm each day for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday (low to mid 50s). With high pressure, we’ll have mostly sunny conditions today and tomorrow, with clouds building Friday in advance of a cold front. Showers Friday night and Saturday morning, then clearing. Cold and blustery (upper 30s to 40) Sunday and to start next week.

    Chatter is beginning about a potential storm for around Thanksgiving. At this point, there is “tremendous uncertainty” about the impacts here, according to the National Weather Service. It is our longstanding policy to not publish model runs this far out as they are notoriously inaccurate. The picture will become clearer as the days advance. As always, stay tuned.
