Mixed but Milder

Discussion: A low will track from Oklahoma through the Great Lakes and into SE Canada this weekend. For NJ, this will bring a warm front through Friday, a warm sector Friday-Saturday, and a cold front through by Sunday morning. With that said, Friday should start foggy but then improve to the warmest day of the weekend. Friday night into and through most of Saturday then looks mild but unsettled as at least isolated showers and possibly thunderstorms push in from the S/SW ahead of the cold front. At some point between late-Saturday night into Sunday morning, the cold front should push through and change winds from SW to W/NW for Sunday. Those colder and drier Sunday W/NW winds should be breezy, possibly gusty. Sunday into Monday should be the coolest point in the near future. Tuesday-Friday builds back warmer but with showers and thunderstorms.

Friday (March 18) high temperatures should reach into the 70s for most. Immediate coastal areas could hang closer to 60. Skies should start foggy but improve by mid-to-late morning. Afternoon-evening looks quite spectacular IMO. Winds should be light out of the SW. Overnight lows should fall to near-50 for most areas with rain likely moving in.

Saturday (March 19) high temperatures should reach into the 60s for most areas. Skies should be mostly cloudy and unsettled. On-and-off rain showers are likely with a small possibility of some boomers. Winds should be light out of the S. Overnight lows should again fall to near-50 as rain and isolated thunderstorm chances persist into Sunday morning.  

Sunday (March 20) high temperatures should reach the mid-to-upper 50s for most areas. Skies should improve during am hours and clear for pm hours. A colder-feeling day with winds breezy/gusty out of the W/NW. But even still, the higher sun angle should help mitigate the colder feel some. Overnight lows should fall into the lower 40s.

An early look at next week indicates highs generally in the 50s/60s with several rain/storm chances. Let’s take a closer look on Sunday. Everyone have a great weekend and please be safe! JC
