Good Wednesday morning to you all! After a warmer and somewhat rainy day yesterday, we are going to be treated to two days of sunshine and windy conditions. They're also going to both be on the chillier side of the thermometer. In fact, you can just about call today and tomorrow meteorological twins. High pressure will continue to build into the region and give us the improving conditions that we are seeing (Not to mention a gorgeous sunrise this morning), but it is also responsible for the cold air that is arriving. Highs for today and tomorrow will struggle to reach the mid to upper 30s, and when you factor west winds at 10 to 20mph for both days, wind chill factors will make it feel like it is ten degrees cooler. A little bit of a warm up comes into play on Friday with highs in the low 40s, but some rain showers will move in ahead of a low pressure system that will impact the region on Saturday.
This low is proving to be more cooperative for forecasting, but there is a bit of uncertainty with how much, if any, cold air is in place Friday night into the morning on Saturday. If there is some cold air around the area, we may see some wet snowflakes at the onset of this storm before switching to all rain for the day with highs in the upper 40s. The majority of the model runs continue to keep this an all rain event for South Jersey, but Dan and I will continue to monitor this storm as it comes closer. Beyond this, the second half of the weekend rebounds quite nicely with partly sunny skies and temperatures in the upper 40s. We'll have one more nice day on Monday before we watch another round of rain arrive on Tuesday.
Have a great day!
