Today is just the first day of a week long warm spell. Temperatures will warm up once again tomorrow, potentially reaching the 90 degree mark in parts of NE NJ. Wednesday and Thursday will be the hottest days of this warm spell, with a very warm air mass supporting high temperatures getting as high as the upper 90s in the immediate NYC area, with the heat index potentially getting as high as the mid 100s. The heat will end by Friday, but chances for severe weather will return.
As a very warm air mass in the central US begins to push into the region, tomorrow will bring warmer temperatures than today. With partly sunny skies and a WSW wind expected, high temperatures will rise into the 80s across the entire area. Highs will range from the lower to mid 80s in Long Island and southern Connecticut to the mid to upper 80s from NYC and further west. It is possible that parts of NE NJ down towards Newark may reach the 90 degree mark.
