Sept 9: Widespread Rainfall Detected!
A series of low pressure disturbances will bring widespread rainfall to New Jersey starting later this evening/overnight and lasting through this weekend. Today is more of a hit-or-miss rainfall opportunity and mostly for NWNJ. Tomorrow, rainfall is expected throughout the entire state. Friday looks like a lull in precipitation but Saturday should feature more widespread rainfall in association with another low pressure disturbance. Sunday, like Friday looks like a lull in widespread precipitation but could still feature cloudy skies and isolated showers. Here’s the predicted rainfall totals over the next 5 days, via the NOAA Weather Prediction Center:
While this will be much needed rainfall, it will not eliminate the drought in its entirety. It should be a step in the right direction however, as we further approach the rainier fall season with a developing El Nino. I’ll have the full weekend outlook posted tomorrow which will break the days down better re: precipitation periods. For now… Widespread rainfall tomorrow and Saturday. Isolated-to-scattered showers on Friday and Sunday. Be safe! JC
