Watching a Coastal Storm this Week (Sept 8-12)

Monday looks pretty decent to start the week out with seasonably average and pleasant conditions. A possible coastal low pressure disturbance could bring rain and wind to the region in the Tuesday-Wednesday period. Temperatures should then rebound a bit warmer as we approach the weekend. Lets break it down by day:

Monday should top out in the mid to upper 70s with a mixed bag of sun and clouds at first. Expect stiff winds out of the E/NE which will be more noticeable closer to the ocean. The reason onshore winds will be starting to kick up is due to an approaching coastal low pressure disturbance. Overcast skies and possibly even a few showers could develop from south to north throughout the day and into nightfall. Lows will then drop to the 60s (50s in NWNJ).

Tuesday should fall even more victim to the coastal system. Rain should move across the region from the SE with 15-25mph onshore winds. We’re not looking at anything substantial here…just a run of the mill coastal with wind, rain, some beach erosion and minor coastal flooding. Highs should reach into the 70s with mostly cloudy skies. I suppose the sun could poke through here and there. Lows should then return into the 60s (50s for NWNJ).

On Wednesday the coastal system should be moving out of the region. Some remnant onshore winds and showers could still be around but the sun is expected to return with highs in the mid-70s and lows in the 60s.

Thursday should moderate warmer into the low 80s with mostly sunny skies. The winds will shift to 5-15mph out of the SW which will increase humidity a bit. With that setup comes the chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon-evening. Lows should then fall into the 60s.

Friday will feature light NW flow which should help reduce humidity levels. Highs should struggle to break 80 with mostly sunny skies. I wish I could say rain-free but again, a small chance of afternoon-evening isolated showers/storms needs to be mentioned. Lows then fall into the 60s. An early look at the weekend indicates a possible frontal passage that should take the entire region into October-like weather to start next week.
