    Generally quiet weather will likely prevail straight through the weekend now that global forecasting models are converging on a solution that will keep the once threatening coastal storm out at sea. 

    “Fair and mild weather” will continue as the “main story for the long term forecast period,” according to the latest forecast discussion issued by the National Weather Service field office in Mount Holly, NJ. 

    The expected favorable weather is courtesy of the storm remaining over the ocean, forecasters say. 

    “A low pressure system will develop well offshore and may bring some gusty winds and/or enhanced seas to the coastal area Sun/Mon,” the NWS forecast discussion notes. “After model runs late yesterday shifted [the] low track further to the east, [the] general trend over [the] past 12 years has been little change with [the] storm track.”

    “If [the] storm were to follow this track, just very minor impacts from waves and winds would be expected.”
