When you walk outside today the key word you will likely think of is refreshing. While temperatures will only be slightly below normal today, the key to the comfortable weather will be the lack of moisture in the air as very low humidity will be in place. These comfortable conditions are expected to continue into the weekend making for another excellent round of weather for the weekend for most.

Today on through tomorrow, high pressure will be in complete control with clear skies to scattered cloud cover. Winds will be from the northwest at 5 to 10 mph through tomorrow. Temperatures will be slightly below normal through the end of the week. Temperatures this afternoon will rise into the lower to mid 80's for highs this afternoon. Low temperatures tomorrow morning will range from the mid to upper 50's over northwestern New Jersey and upper 50's to lower 60's along the coast. High temperatures tomorrow afternoon will rise into the lower to mid 80's. Temperatures this time of year on average are in the mid to upper 60's for lows and mid to upper 80's for highs.

High pressure will shift to the northeast of New Jersey by Saturday and remain to the east of the Garden State through early next week. A series of very weak disturbances will move through New Jersey from the Tennessee and Ohio River Valleys with a threat for an isolated shower or two each day, however most locations can expect dry conditions with a few scattered clouds. Temperatures will remain seasonable through the period. Low temperatures will range from the lower to mid 60's through Wednesday. High temperatures will range from the lower to mid 80's.

Overall, a very nice streak of comfortable weather is on the way with no areas of organized rainfall expected. Temperatures will be seasonable cool and humidity will remain low.
