Rainy Week Expected (April 6-10)

Two slowly moving low pressure disturbances will keep our region wet for the next 5-6 days. One disturbance will track from the Colorado/Kansas area through the Great Lakes. The other will track like a traditional coastal, departing the North Carolina/Virginia area and slowly moving out to sea.  Let’s break each day down:

Monday should flirt with breaking 70 for high temperatures, especially for the interior coastal plain. Expect a mixed bag of sun and clouds with gusty SW winds. Overnight lows then fall to about 50 statewide.

Tuesday should reach the upper-50s (NWNJ) to mid-60s (rest of NJ) for high temperatures. Expect overcast skies with on-and-off rain showers. Winds should be generally light out of the SW but a little breezier near the ocean. Overnight lows should then fall into the low-to-mid 40s.

Wednesday will only reach the low-to-mid 40s for high temperatures. Skies will be mostly cloudy with stiff onshore flow and periods of heavy rainfall. Overnight lows should dip into the upper-30s (NWNJ) and 40s (rest of NJ).

Thursday should reach the mid-to-upper 40s for high temperatures. Skies will be mostly cloudy while gusty winds remain stubborn off the ocean. Winds will be less felt inland. Expect mostly cloudy skies with on-and-off periods of light rain. Overnight lows should then return to the upper-30s (NWNJ) and lower-40s (rest of NJ).

Friday should reach well into the 60s statewide for high temperatures. There is a decent chance to break 70 on the coastal plain, away from the ocean. Skies should be generally improving but light rain showers are on the table until the front clears Saturday. Winds should be breezy out of the S/SW. Overnight lows should drop into the 50s statewide.

An early look at the weekend indicates the front moving through sometime between Saturday morning and afternoon. After that it should be dry, clear, and mild into next week.
