Cold and Dry Weekend Expected (Jan 9-11)

High pressure, currently dropping out of Canada, will have full control of New Jersey this weekend. It will move through the Midwest US and pass just to our S into the Atlantic Ocean. This means generally dry conditions but not without some more Arctic cold. Let’s look at each day:

Friday will range from the upper 20s in NWNJ to the low-to-mid 30s in SENJ. Expect clouds to gradually clear by afternoon. Winds should be about 15mph out of the W with gusts to 30mph. Overnight lows then drop into the single digits and teens again as more Arctic air is re-enforced over our region.

Saturday will struggle to break 20 statewide as Arctic air stabilizes over the region. Expect mostly sunny skies and more stiff W/NW winds. Gusts could exceed 30mph. Overnight lows then drop into the single digits and teens again.

Sunday should reach the low-t0-mid 30s statewide. Mostly sunny skies during the day should gradually fill in by sunset as high pressure slides to our S. That will change the wind direction to the SW which explains the higher temperatures. Even though we’re talking about highs in the 30s, it should feel warm after the cold we’ve all experienced this week. Overnight lows then drop into the 20s for NWNJ and lower 30s in SENJ.

I’ll have an update posted this evening about what to expect for the Monday-Thursday period I’ve been tracking.
