After today’s dreary weather, we’re in for a beautiful stretch of weather straight through Friday (clouds are possible along the coast tomorrow due to an onshore flow). The weekend’s weather remains uncertain.
A cold front will pass through this morning into the early afternoon hours. Showers already stretch through portions of Central Jersey, and more are out in Pennsylvania and will push through Central and South Jersey later this morning. Mostly cloudy all day. High temperatures around 70 degrees. Winds will shift from the west to north this afternoon, becoming gusty at times. Clearing tonight. High pressure will build in later, dropping overnight temperatures to the upper 30s in the mountains and around 50 elsewhere.
Tranquil weather will prevail Tuesday through Friday. With an onshore flow Tuesday, there will be clouds mixing in along the coast — and perhaps a shower or two — near the coast, but inland areas will remain. Highs around 70 degrees inland, slightly cooler along the coast. Another cool night. Frost is possible in the mountains. Mostly sunny for the remainder of the week. High temperatures will rise slightly Wednesday, warming up to the upper 70s Thursday and Friday.
BOAT/BEACH: A Small Craft Advisory will go into effect for the entire coast from late tonight through Tuesday afternoon. With an onshore flow expected tonight into Tuesday and higher tides due to the approaching full moon, minor tidal flooding is possible along the coast Tuesday evening. There may also be a moderate risk of rip currents Tuesday into Wednesday. Surf and breakers area around two to three feet, building tomorrow. The ocean temperature is in the low 70s, and there is a low risk of rip currents. With lifeguards off-duty, exercise extreme caution.
