Weather Conditions Continue To Slowly Improve No Showers Until Tuesday
This was a bit of a strange day in that the areas from New Jersey to New England that got rain yesterday started off with clouds but went partly to mostly sunny for the afternoon. The opposite was true for areas south of Southern New Jersey that had sunshine most of yesterday but were fighting cloud cover today. Both areas topped out in the 50s so they shared that in common. The ocean storm dropped southward from Cape Cod to about level with the Virginia coast and then turned east so it took the clouds with it though the rain fell apart overnight and it was dry from Maine to Virginia today.
With the radar nice and quiet and the storm system moving away to the east we should be partially clear tonight. Most lows will be in the 40s. To the west we have clouds that are part of a weakening frontal system that will fall apart before it gets here. No showers are forecast Sunday but we will have clouds around so we will call it clouds with mixed with sunshine. Highs should reach into the 60s away from the ocean.
Monday is looking to be the best day weather wise of next week with a decent amount of sunshine and highs reaching up into the 60s away from the ocean. Coastal areas will likely be 10 degrees or so cooler thanks to the sea breeze. This leads into the rest of next week where we see a series of weather systems moving along in the flow from west to east.
The systems appear to be weak and weather models seemed to have backed off from something more important storm wise for the end of the week. This opens the door for a chance for showers Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday but if you notice on the loop above the rains are confined to small periods of time and there will be dry stretches in between. We should be in the 60s Tuesday and Wednesday for highs and perhaps a bit cooler toward the end of the week.
