Cool and Unsettled Weekend Expected (Sept 11-13)
Another low pressure disturbance will move through the region this weekend bringing cooler and unsettled conditions into at least part of Sunday. After that? High pressure domination with the biggest taste of fall yet! Let’s break it down.
Friday high temperatures should top off around 80 statewide. After a few morning remnant sprinkles clear out, skies should feature both sun and clouds with noticeably less humidity. Winds should be light out of the W/NW. Overnight lows should fall into the 50s (NNJ elevations) and 60s (rest of New Jersey).
Saturday high temperatures should reach the upper-70s/lower-80s. The idea here is that the first part of Saturday (most daylight hours) should be okay for outdoor activities. But at some point, probably in the afternoon, clouds will fill in ahead of widespread (statewide) rainfall that should last overnight into Sunday. Winds should be light out of the S/SE at first but then intensify and geographically rock around the low’s cyclonic influence as it passes from SW to NE. Overnight lows should fall into the 50s (NNJ elevations) and 60s (rest of New Jersey).
Sunday high temperatures should top out in the low-to-mid 70s. The day could start out wet with remnant showers clearing anywhere between morning and afternoon hours. Once clear, the biggest taste of fall yet! Winds should be breezy out of the NW as overnight lows fall into the 40s (NNJ elevations), 50s (most of New Jersey) and maybe right around 60 for the immediate coast. With ocean surface temperatures well into the 70s, I imagine fog is possible overnight and through AM hours, especially for coastal regions.
An early look at next week indicates very pleasant conditions to start with high pressure in control. We could see temperatures slightly above average return mid-week but nowhere near the July weather we saw last week. Keep in mind that the average NJ September high is 76. Unfortunately, little rainfall is in the forecast next week. Yesterday and this Saturday-Sunday’s rainfall should be it for now.
