Unsettled Week Expected (Mar 14-18)
This week looks unsettled. We should still squeeze in some sunshine however as mild temperatures continue. Let’s break it down.
Monday (Mar 14) high temperatures should range from lower-40s for NNJ elevations to mid-50s for SNJ and the coast. Skies should be mostly cloudy with rainfall likely. Winds should be gusty out of the E/NE. Overnight lows should range in the 40s statewide.
Tuesday (Mar 15) high temperatures should range from upper-50s to lower-60s statewide. Skies could start with lingering clouds/rain showers but should give way to sunny skies. Wind should be light out of the N/NW. Overnight lows should fall into the 40s statewide.
Wednesday (Mar 16) high temperatures should break 60 for most. Onshore flow could keep the immediate coast in the 50s. Skies should be mostly sunny and pleasant for most of the day. PM showers and thunderstorms are possible if enough daytime instability forms. Winds should be light out of the SE. Overnight lows should fall into the 40s statewide.
Thursday (Mar 17) high temperatures should reach the upper-50s/lower-60s statewide. Skies should be partly sunny with passing rain showers and thunderstorms possible. Winds should be breezy out of the S/SW. Overnight lows should range from 30s for NNJ elevations to upper-40s for the SNJ coast.
Friday (Mar 18) high temperatures should reach the upper-50s/lower-60s statewide. Skies should be mostly sunny. Winds should be breezy out of the W. Overnight low should range 20s for NNJ elevations to about 40 along the SNJ coast.
An early look at the weekend indicates cooler conditions (highs in the 50s/lows in the 30s – maybe down into the 20s for NNJ elevations). We’re bound to have a few cooler periods as we continue to quickly transition towards spring. As of right now, Saturday looks like the best day but let’s revisit on Thursday when I’ll have the weekend outlook posted. Otherwise, have a great week and be safe! JC
