It didn't take long for Newark to break its record high temperature on Sunday. The temperature at the city's airport hit 64 degrees at 10:29 a.m., according to the National Weather Service, surpassing the previous record of 63 degrees that was set nearly 70 years ago. Parts of the state also experienced record-warmth on Saturday, as the state continued a stretch of above-average temperatures. New Jersey residents put on t-shirts and flip-flops to enjoy the weather. Some hit the beach and others took a ride in the woods.
