After two very wet and stormy days, dry air is on the way as a powerful cold front inches off the coast and exits into the Atlantic by this afternoon. Pleasant conditions can be expected for the end of the week, however for the first time this summer the weekend looks a bit unsettled.

The cold front will exit off the coast this afternoon with a few lingering showers possible along the immediate coast. Otherwise, overcast skies can be expected through the afternoon followed by clearing skies this evening. Winds will be from the northwest at 5 to 15 mph. Temperatures this afternoon will rise into the upper 70's to lower 80's along the coast and lower to mid 80's over the Delaware River Valley with dew points falling into the 50's. As a result, humidity will crash this afternoon making for pleasant weather conditions.

High pressure will be in control tonight on through Friday with clear skies to scattered cloud cover. Winds will be from the northwest at 5 to 15 mph through the forecast period. Low temperatures will range from the lower to mid 60's throughout much of New Jersey, upper 50's over northwestern New Jersey.
