Lets harness the WeatherTrend360 proprietary weather algorithms for a look at May 2015. But first lets break New Jersey into proper climatological regions. We have the upper elevations of NWNJ, the interior coastal plain (SWNJ through CNJ and into NENJ), and the coastal
A coastal low pressure disturbance will form in the Gulf of Mexico and slowly track up the east coast between tomorrow and Saturday. Current model guidance suggests a close miss out to sea for the heavier precipitation. Fringe-impacts from the
Aside from today, the first half of the week looks great overall but rain showers and overcast skies could close out the week. We’ll have a coastal low pressure system to thank for that (impacts yet TBD) but it should leave a
A cool and dry air mass will be locked in-place over the weekend but a strong sun angle will make it bearable at the surface. Let’s look at each day: Friday high temperatures should range from lower-50s (NWNJ) to upper-50s (SENJ).
Thunderstorms should move through the region this afternoon/early evening. Like the other night, they will be mostly driven by wind-shear as instability is far from impressive. Expect a 1-2 hour period of heavy downpours, lightning, wind gusts, and possibly hail.
Low pressure in Canada will track from just north of the Great Lakes eastward—dragging a cold front beneath it through New Jersey on Wednesday. This should at least bring rain showers through the region but possibly thunderstorms as well. The short-range high-resolution
The threat for evening thunderstorms has increased. This is due to a few factors but most importantly, a break in the clouds this afternoon. Parts of SWNJ are already clearing with the rest of NJ to follow suit over the next
This week should feature a mixed bag of sun, rain, breeze, and mild-to-cool temperatures—everything you’d expect from a run-of-the-mill April week. Let’s break it down: Monday high temperatures should range from 60-70 (cooler for NWNJ/coast and warmer for interior) with
A strong low pressure system will spin up into the Great Lakes between now and Tuesday. This should bring widespread rain, gusty winds, and possibly thunderstorms to the region Monday morning through Tuesday morning. Let’s break it down… This should be one of the rainiest
We might deal with some light rain showers on Friday but Saturday and Sunday are looking, in the style of Larry David, “pretty…pretty…pretty good!” Let’s break it down… Friday high temperatures should top out in the mid-to-upper 60s. Skies should
