Wet weather opportunities on the way for NJ metro

Latest post: 10/3/2013 -- 6:30pm

Our first chance for wet weather in nearly two weeks arrives on Friday...

Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy, with highs at least in the mid- to upper 70s, but readings could once again, as was the case on Thursday, reach the lower 80s in a few spots, if more sun appears than currently expected.
Some showers will develop in the afternoon, especially for northern and western NJ. These are not expected to be heavy.
Radar images will help determine whether other areas in the Garden state, New York City, and Long Island can see some wet weather tomorrow as well.

The weekend will see clouds and some sun... with a 20%-30% chance of a passing shower or two.
If you have outdoor plans for Saturday and Sunday, continue with them ... as any rainfall will be a low possibility, widely scattered, and generally on the light side. Highs over the weekend will have similar opportunities to Friday.

The next weather front continues on delay mode as depicted by the weather models -- and will slowly approach our area Monday, in a weakened status, with some showers likely.

** Tropical storm Karen will impact the Gulf Coast, perhaps as a minimal hurricane, the southeastern U.S. as a weakening tropical storm, and then a tropical depression... and then move up the East Coast Monday night and Tuesday. **

By the time it reaches our latitude, all tropical characteristics will have been lost, and will simply provide the NJ/NYC/Long Island metro area, and the rest of the northeast and New England
with some much-needed rain -- some of which can be heavy.

More details on this in the coming days.

Details on Tropical storm Karen in the next post...
