Unsettled Weekend Expected (Nov 27-29)
Strong high pressure in the northern plains will help push a cold front through this weekend. Model guidance is suggesting that most frontal precipitation (not all) dries up before reaching New Jersey. Therefore I’m not prepared to say that no rain will fall despite overcast skies being the extent of it for many. Let’s break it down:
Friday (Nov 27) high temperatures should reach the low-t0-mid 60s statewide. Skies should be mostly sunny with just a few clouds here and there. Winds should be light out of the S/SW. Overnight lows should fall into the mid-to-upper 40s statewide.
Saturday (Nov 28) high temperatures should reach the low-t0-mid 50s statewide. Skies should be partly cloudy-to-overcast with a small chance of light rain (nuisance at most). Winds should be light out of the N/NW. Overnight lows should range from 30s for NNJ elevations to 40s for the coast.
Sunday (Nov 29) high temperatures should range from mid-40s to lower-50s. Skies should be mostly cloudy for the morning with clearing heading into sunset and overnight hours. Let’s allow a small chance for light nuisance rain in the first half of the day. Winds should be light out of the N/NE. Overnight lows should fall into the lower-20s for NNJ elevations and lower-40s along the coast. If we have a cloudless night with light winds, overnight temperatures could fall even lower due to radiational cooling. A cold night regardless!
An early look at next week indicates that the cooler temperatures will continue with some rain possible mid-week.
