Wednesday afternoon weather update for NJ metro
12:30pm -- 1/29/2014
Temperatures today will top out in the lower and mid- 20s, with sunshine continuing, along with a brisk breeze at times.
A very cold night is in store tonight, with lows bottoming out around 5 degrees in the far northern and western suburbs of NJ, and parts of Long Island, to between 10 - 15 degrees elsewhere.
Highs on Thursday reach the upper 20s, with mainly sunny skies.
I am thinking the milder weather finally arrives Friday. Skies are expected to be partly to mostly cloudy. Precipitation is not expected.
Highs top out at least in the upper 30s, but some model data shows 40+ degree temperatures to end the week.
*** Weekend weather pattern continues to be un-clear ***
It is highly dependent on the track of a storm in the northwest U.S. and the Rockies ...
This is bringing much needed rain to northern parts of the Golden State.
It will be tracking east through Friday, and may have some impact on our weather by Saturday and Super Bowl Sunday.
The weather system will be moving into a more "data-rich" environment today, allowing the models to better predict the track more precisely as it approaches the central and eastern sections of the United States.
Temperatures and precipitation type and chances will be better determined later this afternoon and tonight.
