It's a chilly start to the day, but by afternoon the mercury will climb into the low to mid 50s in most spots -- roughly 10 degrees above normal for Feb. 27.
As of 6:40 a.m. temperatures range form the high teens in Walpack to the low 40s in Downe Township, though most spots are in the upper 20s.
Trenton is expected to make it to 56 later, with Newark reaching 54 and Atlantic City topping out at 49.
It'll be a cloudy overnight with lows falling to the upper 30s and low 40s.

March begins Wednesday with extremely warm conditions and the possibility of more rain. Highs might reach the low 70s and there's a threat of thunderstorms.
