Hazy Sun, Warm & Humid. Spot Late Day Storm…

 

Synopsis:

Today will feature a mix of sun and clouds. It will be warm and humid. There’s only a slight chance of a spotty late day storm as a cool front approaches. As the system moves in tonight the rain may come down heavy for a time over parts of the region. A Flash Flood Watch has been posted for Northern and central NJ and parts of lower NY state (map above). The ground is still saturated from Ida. Between a half inch to two inches of rain may fall (map above). This may cause flash flooding of streets, streams and some basements. Never drive through a flooded roadway. You don’t know how deep that water is. TURN AROUND, DON’T DROWN. This will not be a repeat performance of last week. Again, areas of potentially heavy rain is expected tonight.

Thursday will be mostly cloudy and cooler. Scattered showers are possible just about anytime as the front takes its sweet old time moving offshore.

Friday through the weekend look fantastic as high pressure moves across the region. Mainly sunny skies and near seasonal temperatures are expected Friday and Saturday. By Sunday, the high will move off the coast and a Southwesterly flow will develop. This will result in warmer and more humid conditions.

Stay tuned.

Tornado Watch for Parts of NJ This Evening. Torrential Rains Move In…

Synopsis:

A Tornado Watch is in effect for parts of NJ until 10pm (map above). Any thunderstorms that become severe have the potential to produce a tornado. A Watch means just that-we are watching the situation. If a tornado warning is issued either radar has indicated rotation in the thunderstorm or a tornado has been spotted. Please check the radar frequently and adhere to possible warnings.

This is all due to the remnants of Ida that will affect our region through late tonight.

As you can see by the potential rainfall map above there will be a heavy axis of flooding rains for the Northern two thirds of our region. 2″-6″+ of rain is possible. Needless to say, we do not need anymore rain. The grounds are saturated and rivers and streams remain high. The potential for flooding is high. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for the entire region. Flooding of streets, basements, streams and main stem rivers is at a high potential. Never drive through a flooded roadway you don’t know how deep the water is. TURN AROUND, DON’T DROWN.

The storm will pull out of the area on Thursday morning. Rain will end by sunrise and it will be a bright, cool and breezy September day. Readings will be close to ten degrees below the average high of the lower 80s.

Friday will be a gem as cool high pressure influences the region. Abundant sunshine is expected with low humidity.

The Labor Weekend will make most smile! High pressure will dominate resulting in mainly sunny skies and comfortable readings.

Keep it here for a no nonsense, no hype forecast.

Stay tuned.

Tonight:

Areas of torrential rain and thunderstorms. Some of the storms maybe severe South of the City this evening. Much cooler. Lows in the lower 60s in the City, the upper 50s inland. Northeast to North winds at 15-25mph.

Ida’s Remnants. On & Off Rain to Torrential Rain by Late Day & Night…

 

Synopsis:

The remnants of Ida will affect our region through late tonight.

On and off rain is likely today. A steadier rain is likely North and West of the City. Southern areas will likely see the least amount of rain through the afternoon. Steadier and heavier rain is likely toward evening for all areas. A few thunderstorms are possible and I will be keeping my eye on the possibility of severe storms over central and Southern areas of the tri-state for later today and this evening. The brunt of the storm will be Wednesday evening through the wee hours of Thursday morning with areas of torrential rain.

As you can see by the potential rainfall map above there will be a heavy axis of flooding rains for the Northern two thirds of our region. 2″-6″+ of rain is possible. Needless to say, we do not need anymore rain. The grounds are saturated and rivers and streams remain high. The potential for flooding is high. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for the entire region.

Clouds, Some Sun. Warm, Less Humid…

 

Synopsis:

Today will feature clouds and some sun. It’ll be warm but you’ll notice the humidity will be lower. This is due to a Northwest wind.

The remnants of Ida will affect our region beginning Wednesday with on and off showers. Steadier and heavier rain is likely toward evening. It’ll be much cooler with a light wind out of the Northeast. Rain is expected into Thursday morning. Our region will not damaging winds, but an axis of heavier rain will set up as the remnants moves up the Appalachians and into the tri-state areas. Exactly where the heaviest rain will fall will be determined as we get closer to the event. Needless to say, we do not need anymore rain. The grounds are saturated and rivers and streams remain high. The potential for flooding exists. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for the entire region for 2″-5″+ of rain. The potential rainfall map is above.

Friday will be a September gem as cooler high pressure influences the region. Abundant sunshine is expected with low humidity.
