Cold Windy Weekend Expected (Mar 3-5)

Conversational flurries are possible today. The rest of the weekend looks cold and windy…

Disco: A few short waves will tango a trough of cold air through the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast US this weekend. The southern stream first and the polar stream second. Temperatures should bottom out pretty low (for March), especially during overnight hours tonight through Sunday night. A very weak clipper should move through later today. It looks even weaker than it did a few days ago so scattered conversational flurries at best and maybe even just light rain for SNJ. Next week we should rebound back into milder temperatures before another trough (smaller and less cold than this immediate one) moves through later in the week.

Friday (Mar 3) high temperatures should struggle to escape the 30s statewide. NNJ should top out in the low-t0-mid 30s. Skies should be mostly sunny to start but snow and/or rain showers are possible later in the day/evening. Little to no accumulation is expected, especially on roads. Scattered hit-or-miss flurries the most likely outcome. Winds should be breezy-to-gusty out of the W/NW. Overnight lows should fall into the teens for many areas with immediate coastal areas likely hanging in the 20s.

Saturday (Mar 4) high temperatures should struggle to escape the 20s for NNJ. CNJ and SNJ should just break into the 30s. Skies should be mostly sunny. Winds should remain breezy-to-gusty but a little more out of the NW than W/NW. Overnight lows should fall into the single digits for NNJ and teens for mostly everyone else. Watch the pipes and stuff Saturday night.

Sunday (Mar 5) high temperatures should reach the mid-30s statewide. Skies should be mostly sunny. Winds should remain noticeable out of the NW but slightly less intense. It should still feel cold but not as cold as Saturday. Overnight lows should fall back into the 20s for most (teens for NNJ elevations).

An early look at next week indicates moderation for the first part of the week with daytime highs back into the 50s and 60s. Another trough of colder air should then move in mid-week and keep us colder heading into the weekend. Let’s revisit all of that on Sunday night. Have a great weekend and please be safe! JC
