Mixed Conditions (May 6-10)

Discussion: The rainy pattern remains active. The upper-jet is still running right through NJ bringing numerous disturbances through. Wednesday looks like warm-frontal showers and Friday looks the wettest with a cold frontal passage. The weekend looks pretty good as of now.

Monday (May 6) high temperatures maxed out in the 60s for coastal regions while breaking 70 for the rest of NJ. Skies started mostly sunny but are clouding up some now with the sea breeze front meeting some additional clouds coming in from the W/NW. Can’t rule out an isolated shower or two but most should remain dry. Winds are light out of the SE. Overnight lows should fall into the lower-50s for most.

Tuesday (May 7) high temperatures should reach into the 70s for most. Areas near Wilmington/Philly/Trenton have the best chance of breaking 80. Skies should be partly sunny with showers and thunderstorms possible during PM hours. Winds should be light out of the SW. Overnight lows should fall into the 50s for most.

Wednesday (May 8) high temperatures should reach the mid-60s for most areas. Skies should be partly cloudy. Winds should be light out of the E/NE. Overnight lows should fall to near-50 statewide.

Thursday (May 9) high temperatures should reach into the upper-50s/lower-60s for most areas. Skies should be mostly cloudy with periods of rain likely. Winds should be light out of the E/SE. Overnight lows should range from near-50 to near-60 NNJ to SNJ.

Friday (May 10) high temperatures should just break 70 for most areas perhaps mid-70s closer to I-295. Skies should be partly cloudy with periods of rain and thunderstorms likely. Winds should be light out of the S/SW. Overnight lows should range from near-50 to near-60 NNJ to SNJ.

An early look at the weekend indicates Highs in the mid-to-upper 60s maybe lower 70s away from the ocean. Nothing crazy showing rain-wise. Let’s see if it holds. Some early indications of a heat snap starting ~May 17-21 and lasting for at least a few days is starting to show. Let’s see how everything looks in a few days. Have a great rest of your week and please be safe! JC
