Calm and Mild Week Before the Storm (Dec 15-19)

All eyes are no doubt on the east coast winter storm setting up for this weekend. First we need to get through this week which for the most part looks calm and mild. Let’s break it down:

Monday should range in the mid-40s for high temperatures with clouds giving way to sun. Winds will be extremely light out of the N. Overnight lows should fall just below freezing for most of the state (mid-20s in NWNJ).

Tuesday should make it into the 40s for most of the state (50 near the ocean) with overcast skies and rain. Winds will be light out of the S as overnight lows drop into the 30s (NWNJ) and 40s (SENJ).

Wednesday looks like the most mild day of the week with high temperatures reaching the upper-40s (NWNJ) and lower-50s (SENJ). High temperatures could come earlier than afternoon as a cold frontal passage is expected that will drop statewide lows just below freezing. Once the frontal passage is through, expect gusty NW winds to pick up. As of right now that frontal passage looks like ~Wednesday afternoon but that could drift in either direction. Light rain is possible to start the day but eventually the sun should dominate.

Thursday should only reach into the 30s and lower-40s for highs with mostly sunny skies. Winds should be stiff out of the W/NW. Overnight lows then drop into the 20s statewide.

Friday looks very similar to Thursday during the day with highs in the 30s and lower-40s and plenty of sun to start. Clouds could increase during the afternoon/evening and even moreso overnight. Winds should be 10-15mph out of the NW. Overnight lows should then fall below freezing statewide.

An early look at the weekend indicates an east coast winter storm that should bring snow to most of the region. I’ll be tracking that very closely this week.
