Rain Late Tonight On & Off Thursday Nice Friday Saturday Showers Sunday
We have been fighting the flow of clouds northwestward off the ocean all day today and that has limited sunshine in many areas though northwest of the coast the sun managed to stave off the clouds at least for awhile. The moisture flow increases tonight and we will probably see some showers back in from southeast to northwest overnight and during the day on Thursday. It will remain warm and humid overnight with lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s.
Radars are picking up on bands of ocean showers that are moving northward. As the lower levels of the atmosphere saturate, you will see some showers starting to move inland as they have been over Southern New Jersey and points southward for most of today.

Thursday looks like a cloudy day with on and off showers and the occasional downpour or two. A cold front to the northwest will move through tomorrow night and push the showers out to the east so that should bring an end to any rain. It doesn’t rain straight through but when it doesn’t it should be cloudy warm and humid with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s.
Friday brings improvement with a cooler drier air mass and we should see developing sunshine. The frontal boundary will press southward and should get far enough south that dry air from the northern high will keep things nice with low humidity for both Friday and Saturday. Look for highs both days to be in the 70s. Sunday the front goes the other way and comes back up as a warm front. A cold front will then arrive and between the two we should see some showers and thunderstorms Sunday afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Then another dry high builds in with sunshine, lower humidity and highs in the 70s for Monday and Tuesday.
