And the Livin’s Easy (June 24-28)

Discussion: It’s summertime to further explain the article title. Those of you who never start no static will get it. The week starts with a decaying trough to our NW. The bottom-rounding energy will power a frontal passage of rain (maybe thunderstorms) between Monday PM hours and midday Tuesday. After that geopotential height anomalies build over the Mid-Atlantic US from Wednesday into at least the first half of the weekend. This means hazy, hot and humid conditions. We’re not talking about record breaking heat but certainly a heat wave. We might see a cold front push through on Saturday with some rain and storms which would, in-theory, reduce temperatures and humidity (slightly) for Sunday. The good news? The rainy pattern has broken and normal levels of precipitation are now expected in the foreseeable future for NJ.

Monday (June 24) high temperatures should reach the low-to-mid 80s for most areas. Skies should be mixed with sun and clouds with humidity starting to trickle back in. Showers and possibly some thunderstorms could arrive during PM hours. Winds should be light out of the S/SW. Overnight lows should range from mid-60s to near-70 NNJ to SNJ.

Tuesday (June 25) high temperatures should reach into the 80s for most areas. Interior CNJ/SNJ has the best chance to flirt with 90. Skies should be partly sunny with thunderstorms around. Most action should occur Monday PM through about noon on Tuesday. Therefore Tuesday AM hours are favored for rain/storms.  Humidity should continue building. Winds should be light out of the SW. Overnight lows should range from lower-60s to near-70 NNJ to SNJ.

Wednesday (June 26) high temperatures should reach well-into the 80s for most areas. Interior CNJ/SNJ will likely reach/break 90. Skies should be mostly sunny and humid. Winds should be light out of the W/NW. Overnight lows should range from lower-60s to near-70 NNJ to SNJ.

Thursday (June 27) high temperatures should break 90 for many. Even coastal areas should push into the mid-80s. Skies should be partly sunny and humid. Winds should be light out of the W. Overnight lows should range from lower-60s to near-70 NNJ to SNJ.

Friday (June 28) high temperatures should again break 90 for many with coastal areas at least reaching the mid-80s. Skies should remain partly sunny and humid. Winds should be light out of the W/NW. Overnight lows should range from lower-60s to near-70 NNJ to SNJ.

An early look at the weekend indicates hot and humid conditions spilling into Saturday. Temperatures and humidity should relax a bit for Sunday with a possible cold frontal passage Saturday night. Basic meteorology should assume that rain and thunderstorms could accompany the cold front—especially after the destabilizing hot and humid week. Let’s revisit this in a few days. Otherwise have yourself a great week and please be safe! JC
