Mostly Dry Weather Expected (June 2-4)

Most of the weekend looks dry. Let’s break it down…

Discussion: An area of high pressure is moving into the region for the weekend. The eastern side of its approaching anti-cyclonic flow should dry us out but keep us cooler at night. Daytime high temperatures should still be allowed to reach into the 70s given climatology/time of year and super-high angle of sun. Once the area of high pressure moves across the Mid-Atlantic from NW to SE (now through Sunday morning), a series of low pressure disturbances should then take aim at our region for Sunday PM hours and forward. This likely means dry, cool and comfortable weather from now through Sunday afternoon/early evening and then rain, possibly thunderstorms to close out Sunday and extend into next week. 

Tonight should get a bit chilly. NNJ elevations could dip into the 40s while mostly everyone else dips into the 50s. Skies should remain clear with light northerly winds.

Friday (June 2) high temperatures should reach the mid-to-upper 70s for most. Interior CNJ/SNJ could flirt with breaking 80. Skies should feature a mixed bag of sun and clouds. Let’s allow a small chance of isolated pop-up showers in the afternoon/evening hours. Winds should be light out of the W/SW. Overnight lows should fall back into the 50s for most. NNJ elevations could again dip into the 40s.

Saturday (June 3) high temperatures should range in the 70s statewide. Skies should again feature a mixed bag of sun and clouds. Winds should be light out of the W/NW. Overnight lows should again return to the 50s for most with NNJ elevations possibly dipping into the 40s.

Sunday (June 4) high temperatures should again range in the 70s statewide. Skies should start out sunny but gradually transition to clouds by afternoon and possibly rain/thunderstorms by late-afternoon/early evening. Winds should be light out of the S which will prevent low temperatures from dropping below 60 statewide.

An early look at next week indicates a very unsettled Monday-Wednesday night—maybe even Monday-Thursday morning. We’ll likely see a few dry breaks here and there within that period but overall it looks wet and stormy. Temperatures should remain on the cooler side with highs in the ~70s and lows in the ~50s. As discussed in the June 2017 Discussion, temperatures should begin rebounding towards seasonably average values as we head into and through next weekend.
