Memorial Day Weekend Outlook (May 22-25)
Once the low pressure disturbance slides out to sea Friday morning, high pressure will have complete control through at least Sunday night. Monday however, could feature overcast skies and rain for northern parts of the state with SNJ and coastal regions possibly being ok. Let’s break it down:
Friday should reach the low-to-mid 70s for high temperatures. Expect a mixed bag of sun and clouds with overall dry conditions. Winds should be light out of the NW. Overnight lows should drop into the 40s for most with NWNJ possibly dipping into the high-30s.
Saturday should reach the mid-to-upper 60s for high temperatures. 70 should be broken away from the ocean in spots. Expect bright blue mostly sunny skies. Winds should be light out of the W/NW. Overnight lows should fall into the 40s statewide.
Sunday should reach the mid-to-upper 70s for high temperatures. 80 should be broken away from the ocean in spots. Expect partly cloudy skies. Winds should be light out of the W/SW. Overnight lows should fall into the 50s as clouds and rain approach.
Monday should reach the upper-70s and lower-80s for high temperatures. Overcast skies with rain is possible for NNJ. SNJ and CNJ might be spared by backside dry flow around the high pressure system that will be sitting in the Atlantic Ocean. With that being said, Monday could be a very nice day for SNJ and the Jersey shore. Winds should be light out of the S. Overnight lows should fall into the lower-60s for most (upper-50s for NWNJ).
An early look at next week indicates summer-like conditions.
