N.J. weather: Dangerous thunderstorms, heavy rain, winds up to 60 mph could hit state Thursday

Damaging winds of as much as 60 mph which could cause scattered power outages, downed trees and property damage anytime between mid-afternoon and the evening. Large hail that is capable of damaging vehicles and vegetation is also a threat. Forecasters also say a tornado can’t be ruled out, either.
The risk of extreme conditions that include hail and a tornado is less in New Jersey than in southeastern Pennsylvania and northeastern Maryland, though. While localized flooding is a concern, widespread flooding is not expected to be an issue, the weather service says.
The early part of Thursday isn’t looking particularly promising, either. It’s raining across a swath of northern and Central Jersey as of 7 a.m. with showers and thunderstorms likely to continue until around 9 a.m, forecasters say.
After that round of storms, New Jersey can expect several hours of mostly cloudy conditions as temperatures climb into the mid to upper 70s before the potentially severe weather moves in from the west.
Wet weather will wind down late Thursday leading to a dry overnight and setting the stage for a very pleasant extended Memorial Day weekend.
Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Memorial Day on Monday should be dry and sunny. High temps should in the 70s on Friday and Saturday before making it into the 80s the next two days.
As of now, the only rain threat is Saturday night. Night time weekend lows should range from the 50s to the low 60s.
