Weather Authority: Overnight rain into Thursday morning ahead of 90-degree weekend

Monday was a picture-perfect day for most of the region, with low humidity, blue skies and light breezes.

That’s in advance of a storm system which will move through Monday overnight, bringing a soaking rain and even a rumble or two of thunder.

The rain should move in around midnight, from the north and west. Lows should dip to the mid 50s, as the rain moves through.

FOX 29’s Scott Williams says most of the rainfall should exit the Jersey shore around 8 a.m.

Looking ahead, the heat ramps up across the area, with highs Thursday in the 80s and heading into the 90s for the weekend. The humidity will be high, as well, with dew points in the upper 60s to low 70s, making it feel much more uncomfortable. 


WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Clouds increase. Low: 56

THURSDAY: Morning showers. High: 84, Low: 60

FRIDAY: Heating up. High: 90, Low: 71

SATURDAY: Record heat. High: 96, Low: 75
