Good morning! Saturday’s rainfall should end between noon and 2 p.m. for South Jersey, with the eastern portions, including much of the coast, the last to clear.
We still have to allow for a remnant shower or two through late afternoon/early evening, but after that, the rest of the weekend looks fairly decent.
By Sunday, the frontal boundary should be mostly out to sea with drier northerly flow in place. Extreme southeastern New Jersey will be of closest proximity to the frontal boundary.
With that said, let’s allow a micro chance of a pop-up shower or thunderstorm. For the most part, however, Sunday should be gorgeous outside for most after a beautiful Saturday night.
Monday and Tuesday look rather noneventful, with, again, only southeastern New Jersey on the hook for possible isolated showers and thunderstorms.
Chances are skies will cooperate as long as the frontal boundary stays to our southeast.
Wednesday through the first part of Friday should feature a much cooler and pleasant air mass as high pressure establishes a strong dominance of light northerly flow.
A few might consider this period one of many early tastes of fall to come.
Invest 99L, the area under tropical investigation by the National Hurricane Center, is no longer a threat for East Coast landfall. This tropical wave instead will get absorbed into a frontal boundary offshore and recurve out to sea. It might bring some rip-current concerns to the immediate coast, but that’s about it.
Offshore marine buoys are still reading in the low to mid-70s, while inshore beach waters are closer to the mid-to-upper 70s.
We’re approaching the time of year when annual ocean temperatures peak along the Jersey Shore. This should last until at least mid-September before temperatures begin declining for the colder months.
Surf conditions appear light at the moment with continued southeast swell.
Everyone have a great Saturday, and please be safe!
