Bergen and Passaic counties have a chance for record high temperatures of around 70 degrees Thursday following partly sunny skies and a high of near 61 on Wednesday, according to meteorologist Joe Cioffi.
Cioffi posted on his blog that the region could see some dense fog develop tonight as warmer air streams northward over cooler marine air below.
“A wind shift to the west on Thursday is key to the chance for record or near record highs,” he said. “Any sun will mean some 70 degree readings will appear but this will hinge on clouds and fog burning off.”
Friday is expected to be cooler, followed by a chance for thunderstorms Saturday afternoon and highs in the 60s. Dry, cooler air arrives behind it on Sunday with highs in the 40s.
