Mar 22: Hang in there Jersey!

Warmer weather is on the way. Just a few more cold bumps until such becomes sustained…

Disco: Departing low pressure and approaching high pressure should bring a trough of colder air through our region today through tomorrow. With this transition comes gusty NW winds which should make it feel even colder. Overnight hours tonight should be the coldest point of the week before temperatures begin moderating towards the weekend. I wouldn’t be surprised to see overnight low temperatures fall into the teens and 20s statewide tonight, especially away from the ocean. Tomorrow will still be cold but you should start to feel the moderation as flow switches to the SW. By Friday we’ll have warmer air filtering into the region enforced via return flow from departing high pressure. This should push the thermal boundary well to our N and make Friday mild and Saturday extremely mild. Breaking 70 is on the table for at least interior CNJ/SNJ on Saturday. Sunday then appears unsettled as frontal rain and thunderstorms are possible after a warmer start. Let’ revisit that tomorrow night in the weekend outlook.

In English: If we can just make it through the next few days of colder temperatures and gusty NW winds, then milder weather is on the way starting Friday and into the weekend. Tonight seems like the last “very cold” night until the colder months return in fall…the last night to drip faucets or take any other “cold” precautions that you normally take. After these next few days, all colder periods appear weak and transient to close March out and usher in April. Have a great day and please be safe! JC
