Summery Weekend Expected (May 8-10)
New Jersey will be dominated by high pressure over the weekend. Southerly flow associated with the eastern side of Ana should keep the coastal regions from baking like interior regions might. The ocean and Delaware Bay are still pretty cold and that will be the cooler source ushered in by the southerly winds. The rest of the state should feel summery. Let’s break it down:
Friday should reach well-into the 80s and possibly flirt with 90 for high temperatures (interior). Coastal regions might be held in the mid-to-upper 70s. Expect mostly sunny skies with light southerly winds. Overnight lows should bottom out in the 50s statewide just before sunrise on Saturday. Watch out for pockets of fog that back in off the ocean.
Saturday should just-break 80 for interior regions and just-break 70 along the coast. Skies should be mostly sunny aside from a few friendly clouds for most of the day. Fog and/or clouds could move in anytime between late-afternoon and midnight. Winds should remain light out of the south. Overnight lows should drop into the upper-50s (NWNJ) and lower 60s (Coastal/SENJ).
Sunday is the day I feel that interior areas of New Jersey will approach and possibly break 90 for high temperatures. At the very least, 85 should be reached. The coast, again, will be held cooler from southerly flow moving across the Delaware Bay and ocean. I’d go with anything from upper-70s to lower-80s along the coast. The day might start cloudy but once the sun pokes through, it will warm up pretty quick. Winds should be slightly increased out of the S/SW. Overnight lows should only fall into the 60s statewide.
An early look at next week indicates possible remnant impact from Ana in the form of increased humidity, rainfall, light winds and possibly thunderstorms. This would happen in the Monday-Tuesday time period with temperatures remaining warm. By Wednesday a cold front will lift all energy out to sea with magical low-humidity weather to follow.
