Mostly Decent Weekend Expected (July 2-5)
Most of New Jersey looks pretty good through July 4th weekend except for a few road bumps. There exists just a small chance of clouds and rain on Thursday and Saturday associated with a frontal boundary that will be stationed just to our S. Friday looks pretty decent but Sunday and Monday still look like the winners for nicest days.
Thursday should reach the upper-70s and lower-80s across the state for high temperatures. Morning rain is possible, especially for SNJ. The rest of the state can expect overcast skies through sundown. At some point overnight, it should clear out. Winds should be light out of the NW. Overnight lows should fall into the upper-50s and lower-60s.
Friday high temperatures should range from the mid-70s to about 80. Expect a mixed bag of sun and clouds for most of New Jersey. Winds will be light out of the ENE in correlation with mild cyclonic flow around departing low pressure. Overnight lows should fall into the upper-50s (NWNJ) and lower-60s (rest of New Jersey).
Saturday should range from mid-70s to 80 statewide for high temperatures. Clouds, rain showers and thunderstorms are possible during the day but should clear out by early-evening. Winds should be light out of the N. Overnight lows should fall into the upper-50s (NWNJ) and lower-60s (rest of New Jersey).
Sunday should reach the low-to-mid 80s statewide for high temperatures. Expect mostly sunny skies with very light winds out of the W. Humidity should be felt but not horrible. Coastal regions could see a light sea breeze out of the E. I’ll point it out if I see it backing in on high-res radar. Overnight lows should fall into the low-to-mid 60s statewide.
An early look at next week indicates mostly sunny skies and elevated humidity to start with temperatures in the mid-80s. Storms could return mid-week.
