New Jersey Hudson Valley Gets A Soaking 1 to 3 inch Rainfall Statewide.
Very Slow Improvement Next Several Days
For the first time in months we have seen a statewide soaking rain in New Jersey and areas to the north in Hudson Valley and to the west in Pennsylvania also participated. In general 1 to 3 inches of rain fell in New Jersey with some local amounts in both North & South Jersey going above 3 inches. Hudson Valley rainfalls were also productive with many 1 to 3/2-4 inch rainfalls reported. We still have some more rain to get through but the steady rain is over and now we are dealing with lots of clouds overnight. There area some patches of rain still showing up on the radar but we do not see continuous coverage. The low responsible for this is off the coast and some rain could back in from off the ocean overnight. Some areas could see an additional quarter to half inch while other areas could see less.
We are looking at lots of clouds on Wednesday because we have a high to the northeast and allow to the southeast keeping us in an onshore flow. There still could be some patchy showers or some areas of light rain or drizzle. Temperatures will be just into the 70s Wednesday. General improvement will settle in Thursday with clouds giving way to sunshine. Highs will be in the mid 70s to near 80 degrees. Friday looks good with sunshine. We will still have a bit of a northeast wind and that will help to hold temperatures down a bit. Highs will be in the upper 70s to some lower 80s inland. Warmest temperatures will be in South Jersey. The weekend is looking good with sunshine Saturday and at least some sunshine on Sunday. The humidity should be reasonable late week and into the weekend. Highs will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s both days.
