NEW YORK (PIX11) — It was another unseasonably cool day in and around the city as a low pressure system made its way through the region. Temperatures were stuck in the 50s in most areas for the second straight day, and clouds ruled the sky once again. Central Park reached an afternoon high of just 59 degrees, making it the eighth time in the last ten days that highs were below-normal.
We did, however, manage to find a bright spot among all the cloudiness. Parts of western and southern New Jersey warmed into the 60s, and we even saw a few 70s out there as well.
Look for skies to remain overcast through the remainder of the afternoon and evening hours. A few showers are likely from time-to-time as well, so be sure to grab the umbrellas if heading out. Temperatures will drop into the low and mid 50s.
Looking ahead, you expect brighter and breezier conditions tomorrow through Friday. Temperatures will remain slightly below normal however. Afternoon highs will only be in the mid to upper 50s, and winds could exceed 20 mph at times. The weekend is looking milder however as temperatures warm into the mid and upper 60s, and we may even see some 70s and 80s sometime next week. Our next chance for rain comes Tuesday.
