EDISON -

New Jersey saw sunny, clear skies Tuesday but temperatures were only in the mid-30s for most of the day.

News 12 New Jersey Meteorologist Dave Curren says that the sunshine should stick around for Wednesday. But Curren says that a “significant” rainstorm system is expected to pass through the state Thursday night, going into Friday.

Tuesday’s overnight hours should see partly cloudy skies with temperatures in the low-20s.

Wednesday is expected to see mostly sunny skies with temperatures slightly warmer in the low- to mid-40s. Clouds should develop overnight.

Thursday should start off mostly cloudy with some light rain. But the rain is expected to increase overnight. High temperatures should be in the upper-40s.

Friday should see periods of heavy rain throughout the day. Curren says that there are some flooding concerns due to the amount of rain New Jersey has already seen this year. High temperatures could make it into the 60s, which would make it the third warmest start to winter on record, according to Curren.
