Warm and Humid Week Expected (Aug 31-Sept 4)

High pressure will continue to dominate the region but temperatures and humidity should make it feel more like July than September. Let’s break each day down:

Monday high temperatures should range from 85-90 with interior regions having the best chance for 90. Skies should feature a mixed bag of sun and clouds with noticeably elevated humidity. We have to allow a small possibility for isolated showers and thunderstorms to build during afternoon-early evening hours. Winds should be light out of the W/SW. Overnight lows should fall into the 60s for most of New Jersey (low-70s along the coast).

Tuesday high temperatures should reach the upper-80s (coast) and lower-90s (interior/elevations). Skies should be mostly sunny with continued humidity. Again, instability-driven PM isolated showers and thunderstorms cannot be ruled out. Winds should be light out of the SW. Overnight lows should range in the 60s statewide.

Wednesday high temperatures should reach the upper-80s (coast) and lower-90s (interior/elevations) again and could be the hottest day of the week. Skies should be mostly sunny with continued humidity. Again, instability-driven isolated showers and thunderstorms cannot be ruled out. Winds should be light out of the W. Overnight lows should fall into the 60s for most of New Jersey (low-70s along the coast).

Thursday high temperatures should reach the upper-80s (coast) and lower-90s (interior/elevations) yet again. Skies should be mostly sunny with continued humidity. Thursday has a slightly better chance than other days this week for isolated afternoon-early evening showers and thunderstorms. Winds should be light out of the W/NW. Overnight lows should fall into the 60s for most of New Jersey (low-70s along the coast).

Friday high temperatures should reach the low-to-mid 80s statewide. Skies should feature sun and clouds with a little bit of relief. Onshore (easterly flow) could develop around a very weak area of low pressure coupled with high pressure positioning to our north. This could lead to more clouds than sun. Overnight lows should fall into the 60s for most of New Jersey (50s for NNJ elevations).

An early look at the weekend indicates more sunny, warm and humid conditions. July in September. As far as rainfall goes, nothing widespread is expected, only whatever we can get this week from isolated showers and thunderstorms. It might be next week before a front can move through and return the region to normal temperatures with some much needed rainfall.
