A break from the rain for NJ metro -- for now

Latest post: 5:30pm -- 5/8/2013

After some heavy downpours in many spots this morning and early afternoon, there has been several hours of dry weather ... but more rain is down in Deleware, Maryland, and Virginia  -- heading toward the NJ/NYC/Long Island metro area...

The wet weather is expected to arrive in southern NJ first, around 7pm -- and then move north into central NJ between 7:30 and 8pm, and NYC and Long Island between 8 and 8:30pm. Some heavy downpours will be accompanied with these showers, and a rumble of thunder is not out of the question.
Overnight will see some lingering rain, along with areas of fog -- as temperatures only fall to between 55 and 60 degrees for much of the area.

On Thursday, another weather disturbance will cross the area during the day, so more showers and a thunderstorm is expected. Temperatures will top out in the low 70s inland, and mid- 60s at the shore. Rain will only be heavy in a few isolated spots, which radar will determine as they develop.

Friday will be warmer, with highs reaching 80 degrees or above inland, with cooler readings of 60-65 along the coast. Skies will average out partly sunny, with another shower or thunderstorm arriving by evening, mainly for northwestern sections of New Jersey.
This weather system is expected to produce more heavy rain for the first part of the weekend on Saturday...

** Mother's Day should turn out sunny, but breezy, with highs in the 60s to around 70 degrees **

A dry and cool pattern should be in place for the start of next week ...
