Cold Front Exits Weather Improves Mainly Dry For The Rest of the Week
Our cold front moved through last night and yes you may have had some rain or even heard a few rumbles of thunder during the early morning hours. That is now long gone and we look ahead to sunshine both today and Wednesday. You can also look forward to cooler temperatures by about 10 to 15 degrees depending on location. Yesterday we saw 90 degree highs across New Jersey and parts of the Hudson Valley. Today’s highs will be mostly in the 70s with low humidity and sunshine.
Our satellite picture shows mainly clear skies along the coast. There are clouds and showers in parts of upstate NY but they are well to the north and will not be creating any weather issues today. Skies at their worst will be partly sunny whenever some clouds sneak in from time to time. On the lower right we see Tropical Storm Jerry with winds of 60 mph as it nears Bermuda. Jerry will be passing close to Bermuda on Wednesday as it heads out to the east northeast.
This week is really about a series of weak cold fronts and not much moisture to play with. Skies will be clear tonight with lows in the 50s except low 60s warmer urban areas. Wednesday looks nice and sunny with highs in the 70s. The next cold front arrives on Thursday with very little with it. We will have no worse than partly sunny skies. As usual we warm up ahead of such fronts so highs could reach into the 80s again before the front passes through.
Friday it is back to sunshine with highs in the 70s. Then we have another cold front approaching for Saturday which means we warm up again. Look for partly sunny skies with highs reaching into the 80s. The front could have a shower or two with it as it goes by Saturday evening.
The high sets up an onshore flow for Sunday and Monday of next week. If enough of that high builds far enough south we should see any clouds sink south into the Middle Atlantic states leaving us in partly sunny skies and cool temperatures with highs just in the upper 60s and lower 70s for both Sunday and Monday. That is the early call for the weekend at this point. No widespread rain is forecast for the next 7 days.
