Bright red streaks began appearing in the Jersey Shore sky just a few minutes after the 5:49 p.m. sunset Friday, kicking off what is forecast to be an unseasonably warm weekend.
The sizzling sunset followed a November day when temperatures reached into the 70s, and some haze formed over the Atlantic Ocean and Barnegat Bay thanks to the temperature differential. Water in the bay was 61 degrees – in the ocean, it was 59.
