More Mixed Weather Expected this Week (Oct 6-10)

Another chilly morning start today but temperatures will moderate. A few frontal boundaries will be moving through New Jersey this week which will bring mixed weather to the region. As of now the rainy periods this week look like Tuesday into Wednesday and Friday into Saturday. Let’s look at each day:

Monday should reach 70 statewide with mostly sunny skies. Some high level clouds could move in just in time for sunset. Winds will be 10-15mph out of the S/SW. Overnight lows then fall to the 50s with increasing cloudiness. Some light rain could fall before midnight in NWNJ.

Tuesday should start with a warm front in the morning followed by a cold front later at night. Precipitation could happen as early as afternoon but more likely around sunset or after. There actually might be enough instability and wind shear to spark some storms overnight. We’ll see. Regardless highs will top out in the lower-70s with 5-10mph S/SW winds before overnight lows fall into the 50s post-cold front.

On Wednesday the cold front should be through by early morning. This should clear everything out and allow for mostly sunny skies by late morning-afternoon. High temperatures will have trouble breaking 70 (upper-60s more likely). The biggest noticeable difference will be 8-12mph winds out of the W/NW. Overnight lows then drop into the 40s.

Thursday should only reach the mid-to-upper 60s with 5-10mph winds out of the W. Skies should be mostly sunny during the day before cloud cover increases heading into the evening. Lows should range in the upper-40s to lower-50s overnight as another frontal boundary moves into the region with rain ahead of it.

Friday looks wet. High temperatures should vary in the upper 60s with light W/NW winds. Rain should be on-and-off with scattered to widespread showers moving across the state from W to E. Overnight lows then fall into the 40s and 50s. At this point, NNJ has a better chance of clearing for Saturday than SNJ as northerly high pressure looks to suppress energy and precipitation to the south. It’s still iffy but if the high pressure is weaker/slower…then more of the state should be wet for Saturday. If the high pressure is stronger/faster then rain will be suppressed further to the south allowing for more of the state to be dry. I will have a much better handle on that by Wednesday afternoon.
