Showers move on later today; clearing tonight

    After today’s showers and still mild weather, skies will clear and temperatures will drop back to the 50s for Friday through the weekend.

    Showers continue to move through the Garden State at 11:45 a.m., with more along the cold front that is still in eastern Pennsylvania. It will be off the coast by the afternoon. Precipitation will taper off from west to east, and with a northwest wind, you’ll notice temperatures beginning to drop during the afternoon and evening hours. Chilly tonight (upper 30s at the coast, low 30s elsewhere).

    The sun returns Friday and sticks around through the weekend, but temperatures will be cooler (low 50s Friday and Saturday, warming slightly Sunday).

    Now about that mid-week winter storm that has been discussed over the last several days on the internet. The reality is that the two major forecasting models have no agreement about precipitation type. There is “way too much uncertainty with this system” and “all the parameters will need to line up just right for this system,” the National Weather Service-Mount Holly writes in its latest forecast discussion.

    Key words: “too much uncertainty” and “need to line up just right.”
