A TASTE OF SPRING IN FEBRUARY

Lunchtime strollers in downtown Red Bank found conditions right for light jackets and shirtsleeves Wednesday. It will be even warmer Thursday and Friday, says the weatherbot. (Click to enlarge)

The fingers-crossed nearly snowless winter of 2012 offered a tantalizing taste of spring on the Green Wednesday, and there’s more to come.

The National Weather Service forecasts local highs of around 58 degrees Thursday – about the same as Wednesday – and 62 on Friday.

Thursday will be mostly sunny, but Friday’s warmth will likely accompany rain, mainly in the morning.

Here’s the extended outloook:

Today: Isolated showers before 7am. Cloudy, then gradually becoming mostly sunny, with a high near 58. West wind between 8 and 18 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.

Tonight: Rain, mainly after 1am. Low around 43. Light wind becoming east between 12 and 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible.

Friday: Rain, mainly before noon. High near 62. Breezy, with a north wind 11 to 14 mph increasing to between 21 and 24 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch possible.

Friday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 35. Breezy, with a west wind between 18 and 23 mph.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy, with a high near 45. Breezy, with a west wind between 17 and 24 mph.

Saturday Night: Partly cloudy and breezy, with a low around 29.
