Good morning, South Jersey! Our active pattern weather-wise continues for a little while. After a brief break on Sunday, we go right back into a familiar pattern: Clipper system arrives and leaves quickly, brief break (usually no more than 18 or so hours), then another one moves right in. Such is the case today. While the start of the work week isn't all that bad, cloud cover will increase ahead of another clipper that will arrive tonight and give us yet another chance for some snowfall. While there likely won't be too much snow falling (an inch is the running average that I'm figuring for the region), it will still be enough to create some hazardous travel conditions again. Next, the break arrives...this time, it's the day on Tuesday. A bit warmer (mid to upper 30s as opposed to low 30s), but the end result is the same: Another clipper arrives that night, and we see more snow showers as a result.
Once we hit the middle of the week, we begin to see a change. An extended break arrives for Wednesday and Thursday, and temperatures continue to climb to near average levels. For those keeping score, the average high temperature at KACY is 42 degrees. We'll be close to that on Thursday, with highs finally reaching the low 40s. We do, however, need to watch one more system on Friday. This will bring us a mix of rain and snow for the area, and while the exact timing and intensity of this system are a bit unknown, it does look highly likely that this will be a mixed precip event. The weekend, however, appears to be as close to average as we could possibly get...mostly sunny skies and highs in the low 40s.
Have a great day!
