We'll also have a lot of clouds in the sky later this afternoon as the colder air settles in higher up in the sky.

This time of year, when warm afternoon sun hits abnormally cold air higher up, it makes clouds.

Tonight, the skies turn clear. This means we get chilly. Look for lows near freezing.

The skies clear because a strong area of high pressure heads toward us.

Enjoy mostly sunny skies on Friday. Our highs come in just a few degrees above average in the upper 40s.

Then, with the area of high pressure right over us on Saturday, we’ll have completely sunny skies and highs in the low 50s.

Into the mid 50s we go on Sunday with more sunshine.

On Monday, we’ll still have mostly sunny skies, but highs go back down to the low 50s.

This happens because a weak cold front crosses over us Sunday night.

We'll still have highs in the low 50s on Tuesday, but we'll have a lot of clouds in the sky.

The clouds from some rain passing to our east—just off the New Jersey coast.

Look for partly sunny skies on Wednesday and mostly sunny skies on Thursday of next week. Highs remain above average in the 50s.
