Saturday afternoon weather update for NJ metro

Latest post: 12:45pm -- 10/5/2013

The simpler part of the forecast for this weekend is for clouds and sun for both Saturday and Sunday.
The pattern the next 2 days is a humid one, and a few weak weather disturbances will be around, so there can be a passing shower or thunderstorms at any time -- but only a 30% chance... so you do not cancel any of your out-door plans.
High temperature opportunities will vary -- from the mid- to upper 70s if more clouds than sun are around, but when more sun peeks through, it can reach into the lower 80s.
Radar images will determine the timing and location of any potential showers or thunderstorms.

The attention for early next week turns to a more well-defined weather pattern, with two systems to deal with - a slow-moving cold front -- and currently tropical storm Karen. 

Heavy rain threat continues for our area...

Models are more consistent with their most recent data...
They do show a faster arrival and exit, so the time frame at this point will be adjusted to late Monday and Monday night.
Tuesday will have clearing skies, with sunshine returning.

The potential exists for 1 -2 inches of rain as these weather systems affect the region.

More details later today.
