Mixed Weather Expected (Oct 7-9)
Well, Friday and Sunday look okay. Let’s break it down…
Friday (October 7) high temperatures should reach the low-to-mid 70s statewide. After some possible AM fog, skies should be mostly sunny. Winds should be light out of the E. Overnight lows should range from upper-40s for NNJ elevations to lower-60s along the coast with most of interior NJ bottoming out in the 50s.
Saturday (October 8) high temperatures should reach the upper-60s/lower-70s statewide. Skies should be overcast to partly cloudy with scattered rain showers possible along a passing cold front. As of right now, a small amount of SE synoptic flow from the tip of Matthew could enhance the rain along the cold front and produce more of a widespread rain than a scattered rain. With so much uncertainty, let’s just go with scattered-to-widespread rain showers between late morning and early evening. Matthew is still expected to remain far to the SE of NJ. Winds should be light out of the SE and perhaps breezier along the coast. Overnight lows should range from upper-40s for NNJ elevations to lower-60s along the coast with most of interior NJ bottoming out in the 50s.
Sunday (October 9) high temperatures should reach the mid-60s statewide. I’m happy to report that it will be partly-to-mostly sunny with Matthew remaining well to our SE. Winds should be breezy-to-gusty out of the N/NW. Overnight lows should fall into the 40s and 50s for most and perhaps even the 30s for NNJ elevations. Hello fall!
An early look at the next week indicates more sesonably average conditions with nothing out of the ordinary showing. Highs in the upper-60s/lower-70s and plenty of sunshine with cooler nights. Have a great weekend and please be safe! JC
