Labor Day Weekend (Aug 30-Sept 2)

Discussion: Lots of high pressure will be around this weekend and that’s what will likely turn Hurricane Dorian into the E Florida coast. For New Jersey it means a stellar Labor Day Weekend forecast with only some nuisance stuff around late Sunday night into parts of Monday. Friday, Saturday and most of Sunday looks great. And Monday is not a washout more of a fizzling scattered showers situation. Monday will however start a small stretch of warmer temperatures (highs in the 80s) and humidity that should last through about Wednesday. We’ll then be heavily tracking whatever the remnants of Dorian are doing after the likely Florida landfall.

Friday (Aug 30) high temperatures should reach into the 80s for most areas. A little closer to 90 for interior CNJ/SNJ and closer to 80 for NNJ elevations and coastal CNJ/SNJ. Skies should be mostly sunny. Winds should be light out of the S/SW. Overnight lows should range from mid-50s to mid-60s NNJ to SNJ.

Saturday (Aug 31) high temperatures should reach near-80 for most areas. Skies should be mostly sunny. Winds should be light out of the N/NE. Overnight lows should range from mid-50s to mid-60s NNJ to SNJ.

Sunday (Sept 1) high temperatures should reach the mid-to-upper 70s for most areas. Skies should start partly cloudy but increase in cloud coverage throughout the day. Showers and thunderstorms are possible later in the evening/overnight. Winds should be light out of the E/NE perhaps breezy at times along the ENJ coast. Overnight lows should range from near-60 to near-70 NNJ to SNJ.

Monday (Sept 2 – Labor Day) high temperatures should reach near-80 for most areas. Interior CNJ/SNJ could reach the mid-80s. Skies should be mixed with sun and clouds with showers and thunderstorms around. Humidity should noticeably return. Not a total washout but certainly periods of rain re: outdoor interests. Winds should be light out of the N/NE. Overnight lows should range from mid-50s to mid-60s NNJ to SNJ.

An early look at next week indicates warm (not hot) and humid conditions lasting through about Wednesday. Then all eyes turn to whatever remnants of Dorian slide up the coast…if they slide up the coast. There’s still a lot of variance so we’ll have to take it day by day. NJ is in no danger of a direct landfall from Dorian (like Florida) however the remnants could bring a solid rainstorm through if things line up correctly. I’ll be watching. For now have yourselves a great Labor Day Weekend and please be safe! JC
