Weekend heat set NJ records but not the one you think
The days after Halloween is usually when the colder weather takes hold and thoughts turn to when the first snow might fall.
Temperatures were up to 20 degrees above average across New Jersey over the weekend.
While it was warm with temperatures in the 70s, with an 80 in Wrightstown at the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, no daily high-temperature records were set.
The daily low temperatures, however, were a different story.
On Sunday morning, the National Weather Service recorded the warmest low temperatures ever for Nov. 6 at Atlantic City International Airport (65 degrees) and the Marina (66 degrees).
The National Weather Service in Mount Holly said that the November warmth and humidity will come to an end as a cold front moves through the state. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 50s for Tuesday and Wednesday with lows in the 30s and 40s.
Temperatures should rebound Thursday and Friday back into the 60s.
The remnants of subtropical storm Nicole will move up the coast and could bring an all-day soaking rain on Friday and maybe Saturday.
A strong cold front expected over the weekend will likely bring a prolonged period of seasonal temperatures.
