Mixed Weather Expected (Sept 8-11)
I hope everyone had a great Labor Day Weekend! The high pressure that brought us the stellar weather will now slide eastward into the Atlantic Ocean. A series of low pressure disturbances will ride a frontal boundary that should move through our region. This should cool things down and bring mixed but much needed weather to the region between Thursday and early next week—but not before a few more warm days. Let’s break it down:
Tuesday high temperatures should reach the 90s inland and 80s along the coast. Skies should be mostly sunny with noticeable humidity. Winds should be light out of the S/SW. Overnight lows should fall into the 60s inland and lower-70s along the coast.
Wednesday high temperatures should reach the 90s inland and 80s along the coast. Expect a mixed bag of sun and clouds for most of the day with afternoon-evening thunderstorms possible. Winds should be light out of the S/SW. Overnight lows should fall into the 60s inland and lower-70s along the coast.
Thursday high temperatures should reach the 80s for most (maybe only 70s for NNJ elevations). Scattered-to-widespread showers with embedded thunderstorms are possible with generally overcast/partly sunny skies otherwise. Winds should remain light out of the S/SW. Overnight lows should fall into the 60s for most (50s for NNJ elevations).
Friday high temperatures should reach the 80s for most (maybe only 70s for NNJ elevations). Depending on the proximity of any passing low pressure systems, skies could range from partly sunny/overcast to overcast/rainy. Will have to monitor short-term guidance for exact low tracks and precipitation shields generated from such. Winds should be light out of the N/NW which should accompany a drier feel (moreso for interior/elevations than coastal regions subject to synoptic rainfall). Overnight lows should fall into the 60s for most (50s for NNJ elevations).
An early look at the weekend indicates more unsettled weather with again, several low pressure disturbances riding the frontal boundary that should be ~just off the coast. While not a total washout, periods of showers and thunderstorms are possible. As far as temperatures go, highs in the upper-70s and lows in the 50s/60s are expected.
Tropical Discussion: Fred has dissipated as expected. Grace is a weak storm that will battle unfavorable conditions for development as she steams across the Atlantic Ocean towards the E. Caribbean. There are no tropical threats to New Jersey nor the US coast at this time. Follow along on the Eye Wall for the latest updates and data.
