Mixed Weather Expected (Aug 24-28)

General Discussion: A low pressure system of tropical interest (Invest 97L) is spinning off the east coast but presents no direct threat of landfall. Therefore, coastal regions should take notice of increased surf and rip currents through at least Wednesday when the system has departed to the NE. Please listen to your lifeguards and local authorities regarding swimming safety. This should be the case for at least the start of the week. Then a low pressure system in Canada will drag a cold front through on Tuesday which could touch off a few showers and possibly isolated weak t-storms. Tuesday night-forward then looks great behind the front for all of New Jersey as we continue to monitor tropical activity in the Caribbean and possibly the Bahamas. Let’s break the week down:

Monday high temperatures should reach the mid-to-upper 80s. Skies should be partly cloudy with noticeable humidity. Winds should be light out of the S. Overnight lows should drop into the 60s for elevations and inland (low-70s for the coast) with a small chance of overnight isolated showers and thunderstorms.

Tuesday high temperatures should reach the low-to-mid 80s with continued noticeable humidity. Skies should feature a mixed bag of sun and clouds with isolated showers and thunderstorms possible during the day. A front will be moving through which will separate the humid air mass ahead of it from the dry and pleasant air mass behind. The frontal passage should be mostly dry. Winds should be light out of the W/SW. Overnight lows should fall into the 60s for most of New Jersey (50s for NNJ elevations).

Wednesday high temperatures should reach the low-to-mid 80s. Skies should be mostly sunny with a pleasant dry feeling. This will be the result of the cold front moving through behind Tuesday’s storms. Winds should be light-to-breezy out of the W/NW (maybe N along the coast). Overnight lows should fall into the 60s for most of New Jersey (50s for NNJ elevations).

Thursday high temperatures should reach the low-to-mid 80s. Skies should be mostly sunny with pleasurable humidity levels. Winds should be light-to-breezy out of the NW. Overnight lows should fall into the 60s for most of New Jersey (50s for NNJ elevations).

Friday high temperatures should reach the low 80s statewide. Skies should be mostly sunny with pleasurable humidity levels. Winds should be light-to-breezy out of the W/NW. Overnight lows should fall into the 60s for most of New Jersey (50s for NNJ elevations).

An early look at the weekend indicates more highs in the low-80s with plenty of sun. Humidity should begin trickling back in towards the second half of the weekend.
