New Jersey Hudson Valley Dreary Weekend Of Rain
As Ian Heads for South Carolina
The weather this weekend in New Jersey and the Hudson Valley is going to be a bit tricky. We will have rain and dreary condtions but it won’t be raining straight through. Also as the map above shows the further north you go the less rain you get. Hudson Valley and Northwest NJ as well as NE Pennsylvania rains will be under a quarter of an inch while amount go up as you head south. Southern New Jersey rains will be the highest with 1 to 2 inches of rain forecast.
There are no weather issues though the dayside Friday with increasing clouds from south to north and highs will be in the 60s. Rain will overspread the area from south to north Friday night into Satuday morning. This moisture is an offshoot of Hurricane Ian, or what will be Hurricane Ian again as that storm heads into South Carolina sometime Friday.
Ian is at the base of a long stretch of moisture out in the Atlantic. That moisture field will move northwest and separate from Ian. The core heads to Western South and North Carolina while rain moves up the coast. High pressure to the north will cut off the rain at some point, probably just north and west of NYC and Southern Connecticut. Rain Friday night into Saturday morning will be followed by leftover clouds and patches of lighter rain or drizzle Saturday afternoon and continue on and off Sunday. Temperatures will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Look for northeast winds to pick up over the weekend along the coast with the possibility gusty winds to gale force later Saturday and Sunday. Weather conditions could improve early next week but that will depend on the track on Ian and whether that high to the north can build southward and suppress the moisture.
