Memorial Day Weather Sunshine Nice Day Unsettled Weather Midweek
We saw a nasty thunderstorm move across Northern New Jersey this evening. Another band of showers is moving in as evidenced on both the satellite picture this evening as well as the regional and local radars. All of this comes after a very warm spring day as highs reached the 80s in many areas. Some areas reached the mid to upper 80s today. Once these showers move out tonight skies will clear out and morning lows will be in the 50s to lower 60s.
We can see the last band of showers with some heavier downpours across Eastern Pennsylvania and extending into Northern New Jersey. Heavier thunderstorms are along the Pennsylvania Maryland border sliding east southeastward.

Monday Memorial Day we will see lots of sunshine, low humidity with highs in the mid 70s to lower 80s. It is the perfect way to finish off what is a very nice Memorial Day holiday weekend with plenty of sunshine and only minor interruptions with showers and thunderstorms that occurred at night.
Tuesday through Thursday we will be battling with a frontal boundary to the south and a developing onshore flow. The question remains whether some of the hot humid air to the south gets in here at some point. It won’t happen on Tuesday. Look for cloudy skies with an ocean wind and some rain moving in. Highs will be just be into the 60s from NYC north and east with 60s and 70s to the south. We may have to wait until Thursday to see temperatures to rise back into the 80s. Wednesday will likely be another day with clouds and the chance for showers. Highs in the 60s north and east of NYC and 70s to the south. Finally on Friday a cold front will move through with showers and thunderstorms followed by dry air and sunshine next Saturday and another chance for showers next Sunday.
