Mixed Weekend Weather Ahead (July 18-20)

Thanks to the cooler air mass that’s in place, we should stay mostly dry and pleasant through at least Saturday evening. I’m watching a weak low pressure disturbance that might slide up the coast and bring rain showers to the region on Sunday. Lets break it down.

Friday will be under the complete control of high pressure–cool sinking anti-cyclonic air. Expect a mixed bag of mostly sun and clouds with highs in the lower 80s and overnight lows around 60. Winds should be light as they rock between northerly to southerly directions. It should be absolutely gorgeous.

Saturday should be a repeat of Friday until later in the evening. At that point a low pressure system will be traveling northeastward parallel to coastal regions of NJ. If it passes close enough it could bring showers through most of Sunday. If not, then the beautiful weekend continues. Here’s the GFS showing rain making it into SENJ at 2AM on Sunday morning.

This is going to be a close call but I’ll be watching guidance heading into the weekend. In the meantime, enjoy the beautiful weather and be safe! JC
