Week Begins Stormy. Ends Hot (June 8-12)
Northerly low pressure will drag moisture through the region early this week. That should present the threat for rain and thunderstorms. Everything should improve by Wednesday morning as hot weather settles in to finish out the week. Let’s break it down:
Monday should reach the low-80s statewide with a mixed bag of sun and clouds for most of the day. Thunderstorms are expected throughout the region which I’ll be paying close attention to. As of right now, expect them to arrive between afternoon and early evening hours. Otherwise expect breezy-to-gusty winds out of the S/SE. Overnight lows should fall just into the 60s with storms possible overnight.
Tuesday should reach the low-to-mid 80s for high temperatures with more sun, clouds, and thunderstorms. Conditions should start to improve Tuesday evening. Expect light winds out of the W/SW. Overnight lows should fall into the upper-50s (NWNJ) and 60s (rest of New Jersey).
Wednesday should reach the mid-80s and possibly flirt with 90 away from the ocean. Humidity should begin trickling back in. Skies should be mostly sunny with light SW winds. Overnight lows should fall into the upper-50s (NWNJ) and 60s (rest of New Jersey).
Thursday should break 90 inland and maybe be held in the 80s for the coast. Expect more mostly sunny skies with elevated humidity. We’ll have to see if any isolated thunderstorms want to pop up. Winds should remain light out of the SW. Overnight lows should fall into the 60s statewide.
Friday should reach the mid-80s and possibly flirt with 90 away from the ocean. Skies should be mostly sunny. Winds should remain light out of the SW except for the immediate coast where a light SE sea breeze could happen. Overnight lows should fall into the 60s statewide.
An early look at the weekend indicates low-80s with mostly nice conditions. Model guidance is indicating weak high pressure which should do a good job of keeping it mostly dry outside of any afternoon-evening isolated pop-up thunderstorms.
