It will also bring a full day of sunshine and temperatures reaching the low 80s. Locations along the southern coast of New Jersey are forecast to experience sea breezes in the afternoon hours which may enhance ozone levels. Ozone levels will rise into the moderate range while levels of fine particulates will remain good. 5/25 - High pressure moves offshore on Friday bringing southwest winds to New Jersey with increasing humidity and widespread sunshine. Ozone levels will rise into the upper moderate range state-wide with the potential for scattered occurrences of USG along the I-95 corridor. Levels of fine particulates will rise into the low moderate range in urban areas.
