(PIX11 WEATHER CENTER) — The storm system that dumped light snow on central and southern New Jersey has moved to New England, missing the tri-state area but still giving us an unwelcome taste of January.

We will be dealing with gusty winds as high pressure works its way into the area from the Midwest.  High temperatures will reach the upper 30s and lower 40s.  This is a full 15 degrees below normal for the day.

A wind advisory remains in effect until 6:00 p.m. Wednesday evening for the eastern portions of the tri-state area. Winds will gust up to 40 mph this afternoon and evening, with potential for broken tree limbs and scattered power outages.

High pressure will be in control for Thursday, bringing sunny skies and slightly milder temperatures, reaching the mid 40s.

We will end the week with a return to seasonable temperatures and a chance of showers. A front will approach the area from the west bringing mild air for the Gulf of Mexico. High temperatures will be in the low to mid 50s with scattered rain showers.

Rain will continue into the weekend with a steady soaking rain and seasonable temperatures. Highs will be in the low to mid 50s.
