Though clouds may have prevented some people from filling out their tans on Monday, the long Memorial Day Weekend was marked by mostly sunny skies, breezy sea air and generally warm temperatures.
For those who love the natural beauty of things – especially this time of year – we had two nights of intriguing sunsets, both of which are shared in the video above. We hope you sit back and enjoy. (Please note some browser ad blockers can hide the video.)
For those lucky enough to be extending their long weekend, the National Weather Service is forecasting what, in true Jersey fashion, might be called “not so bad, not so great.”
Tuesday has the curious designation of “haze” in the official forecast, a rarity on the east coast, where marine layers are less common than in areas bordering the Pacific Ocean. The forecast calls for “widespread haze after 8 a.m. But otherwise, sunny, with a high near 62. East wind around 15 m.p.h.”
Tuesday night, the haze will continue until about 2 a.m, the NWS said, under mostly cloudy skies with a low of 52 degrees.
Wednesday will return to more seasonal weather, with partly sunny skies and a high near 68. Northeast wind around 10 m.p.h. But by Wednesday night, a fog will roll in, potentially causing some visibility issues after 11 p.m. Otherwise, partly cloudy, with a low around 56, and light winds.
More ordinary – but nice – weather arrives Thursday, with mostly sunny skies and a high of 77 degrees.
To end the week, on Friday, it will be mostly sunny with a high of 74 degrees.
