Dry and Pleasant (Aug 9-11)

Discussion: A mostly dry cold front will push through NJ tonight through tomorrow morning. A few showers and even boomers are possible, from now through tonight along the front, but likely non-severe. We’re then in for a real treat this weekend weather-wise. High pressure is expected to move out of Canada into the northern central US and track across the E US (over the Ohio area) through the southern/central Mid-Atlantic US. This should bring a super pleasant air mass to New Jersey for this entire weekend. We’re talking dew points dropping into the upper-40s/lower-50s for most. This should trigger the instinctive feelz of summer starting to pack its bags…an early taste of fall influence. Not to worry though. Plenty of summer left. This weekend should be just a transient occurrence for now with summery conditions returning next week. Hurricane season remains quiet despite very warm ocean temperatures. The Sahara Desert has been producing dry air into the trade winds which should inhibit tropical development, between Cape Verde and the Caribbean, for the near future. Something could form closer to home (off SE US) but nothing is currently modeled nor expected.

Friday (Aug 9) high temperatures should reach the low-to-mid 80s for most. Skies should be mostly sunny with a drier and more pleasant feel (moreso for NNJ than SNJ). Winds should be light out of the W/NW. Overnight lows should range from mid-50s to mid-60s NNJ to SNJ.

Saturday (Aug 10) high temperatures should reach the upper-70s/lower-80s for most. Skies should be mostly sunny with a pleasant feel. Winds should be light out of the W/NW. Overnight lows should range from mid-50s to mid-60s NNJ to SNJ.

Sunday (Aug 11) high temperatures should reach the upper-70s/lower-80s for most. Skies should remain mostly sunny with a pleasant feel. Winds should be light out of the W. Overnight lows should range from mid-50s to mid-60s NNJ to SNJ.

An early look at next week indicates more highs in the upper-70s and lower-80s (mid-80s for interior CNJ/SNJ). The super pleasant air mass should erode by Monday afternoon/evening as some humidity trickles back in. With the humidity moderating back in comes the chance of showers and thunderstorms here and there later in the week. Nothing crazy on the table though. Have a great weekend and please be safe! JC
