Cold Week Expected (Dec 29-Jan 2)

Monday should be the last mild-ish day for a while. Arctic high pressure systems are beginning to drop out of Canada into the western plains—a sign that old man winter is finally coming. Let’s take it day by day:

Monday should range from the lower-to-mid 40s for high temperatures. Skies should be mostly sunny with a few patches of clouds. Winds will be light out of the N/NW. Overnight lows will then drop below freezing statewide as cold air begins filtering into the region from the NW.

Tuesday will top out in the 30s statewide with a good portion of the state staying below/close to freezing. Expect a mixed bag of sun and clouds with stiff northerly winds. Overnight lows should then drop to the teens and 20s statewide (from NWNJ to SENJ). A small chance of flurries/light snow is still in the cards for SNJ as precipitation will be passing by to our south.

Wednesday should be even colder with highs in the upper 20s and lower 30s. Skies should be mostly sunny with stiff W/NW winds. Overnight lows will then fall into the teens for most of the state with maybe coastal/SENJ bottoming out in the lower 20s.

Thursday high temperatures ranging from 32-40 (NWNJ to SENJ). Skies should be mostly sunny with 10-20mph W/SW winds. Overnight lows should then fall into the mid-20s statewide.

Friday high temperatures should range in the upper-30s and lower-40s. Expect a mixed bag of sun and clouds with light SW winds. Overnight lows should then fall into the mid-to-upper 20s.

An early look at the weekend indicates some precipitation moving through on Saturday. We’ll have to take a closer look midweek but freezing rain could be a problem if rain falls on surfaces that are still below freezing.
