Record temperatures are possible today. Big change in the weekend forecast.

It will be another very warm, dry day in New Jersey on Wednesday, with near-record temperatures climbing well into the 80s across much of the state.

Temperatures will be slightly cooler along the Jersey Shore, reaching highs in the 70s as clouds and sun mix, the National Weather Service said.

Highs in Trenton are expected to reach 87, which would be one degree less than the May 2 record last set in 2018.

The projected high of 83 at Newark and 71 at Atlantic City International Airport would not challenge the records. A high of 88 is expected in Camden, not far from the record high of 90 in neighboring Philadelphia.

It will be cool this morning with temperatures around 50┬░C and some fog that will clear over the next few hours.

Overnight lows will fall back into the 50s tonight, making for a pleasant and much cooler Friday with sunny skies. Highs on Friday will be in the mid to upper 60s.

Cooler, rainy weather is expected in New Jersey late this weekend.

The weather forecast for the weekend looks uncertain as temperatures continue to be cooler and rain is possible.

Saturday should be mostly cloudy with temperatures reaching the 60s. There is a 15% to 25% chance of light rain west of the Interstate 95 corridor, the National Weather Service said in its morning forecast discussion.

However, it could rain overnight into Sunday.

Periods of rain are expected Sunday, with temperatures only rising into the upper 50s to mid 60s.

Temperatures in early May were generally in the upper 40s to upper 60s.
