Wednesday morning weather update for NJ metro

Latest post: 9:00am -- 10/23/2013

The cold front yesterday evening has resulted in readings in the 30s and 40s to begin the morning for our entire area.

A quick-moving weather system will be affecting most of the region today...
The wet weather has been down across southern New Jersey, and the Philadelphia metro area so far...

The models are in good agreement indicating  central, southern, and eastern sections of NJ, as well as Long Island, that have the best chance to get wet.
Rainfall amounts are expected to be light, ranging from one-tenth to one-quarter of an inch for the above-mentioned areas.
For northwestern and extreme northern NJ, including Sussex, Warren, and Passaic counties, as well as for NYC, only some sprinkles or light rain will fall respectively.
Highs today only top out in the upper 40s and lower 50s.
All rain opportunities will end late this afternoon or early evening, with the cold air getting re-enforced tonight...

Temperatures by morning on Thursday will be in the 30s in New Jersey and Long Island, to around 40 for NYC.  Some NJ and Long Island locations could drop into the upper 20s, ending the growing season.
New frost and freeze alerts are in effect, which I will post separately.

For Thursday, highs reach between 50 and 55 degrees for most spots, with partly, to occasionally, mostly cloudy skies. A few sprinkles are possible, mainly for northwestern New Jersey.

Another cold start on Friday, with temps. in the upper 20s to upper 30s. Sun and clouds will be mixed during the afternoon.
Highs on Friday reach around 50 degrees.

The chill continues over the weekend...

More details on this in my next post.
