A wet and chilly day on Thursday...
Clouds tonight will stick around, with low temperatures dropping into the 50s.
Rain is expected to develop overnight in south Jersey, and will move north through much of the rest of the Garden state by the morning rush-hour on Thursday. By late morning, NYC and Long Island are forecasted to get wet as well.
Some of the rain can be heavy, particularly in central and southern New Jersey tomorrow. High temperatures only top out around 60 degrees, along with a brisk breeze, reaching 20mph at times.
More of the same will be around Thursday night, along with areas of fog. Lows fall into the mid- to upper 50s.
Friday's weather does not look to change all that much, with more on-and-off rain. Highs reach only around 60 degrees once again.
When steady rain is not falling, drizzle and mist will be a weather nuisance. A gusty wind will continue.
Friday night continues the trend of light rain, drizzle, and and areas of fog.
By the weekend, the pattern is shown by some weather models to be drier, with other weather maps indicating a continued threat for rain.
My thinking is that there will be times on Saturday and Sunday that it will not be wet, but some drizzle and mist will be around too.
Highs over the weekend depend on how long it remains dry, and if a few peeks of sun appear, but, on average, should range between the low and mid-60s.
More updates on this wet forecast will be posted tonight.
*** Coastal flooding at times of high tide, along with rough surf and beach erosion will affect the coasts of New Jersey and Long Island through the weekend. ***
