The storm is over, and while brighter days return for the weekend, you’ll need to break out the wool socks and jackets for the first time this season.
UPDATE: We needed to push back the start date one more day. Therefore, we'll release the ann…
Any lingering rain shower will end by 6 a.m. for the coast. We will already start to notice the stiff wind behind the sweeping cold front, as Canadian high pressure drops into the center of the country and works its way toward us Saturday morning. Sunshine will be the theme all day. A few clouds will be around, mainly north of the Atlantic City Expressway, during the middle of the day.
Sustained winds of 16-24 mph will be blowing. Gusts will reach the 30s. If we can get some better mixing from aloft (I’ll save you the details here), then we will be talking gusts in the 40s. Either way, make sure your lawn furniture and loose objects will be secured.
I believe I can say it feels like winter. High temperatures will be in the upper 40s! There will be a wind chill around 40 to go with that as well.
The winds will calm down Saturday evening and temperatures will be able to drop freely. Temperatures during the evening will drop quickly into the 40s and slide through the 30s, so keep the winter gear around.
Veterans Day will be the same as Saturday, just subtract the winds. So, it will feel a little warmer out there. Highs will again be in the upper 40s throughout the region. High pressure will sit directly overhead.
We wake Sunday to our coldest morning of the season, too. The growing season will end for those in mainland Atlantic and Cape May counties. The shores should stay above freezing. However, Long Beach Island will be close. Sunday night will drop below freezing again.
Pieces will be there for a coastal storm from Monday night into early Wednesday. Heavy rain and coastal flooding will be on the docket. A thunderstorm or two will not be ruled out as well. Strong winds will remain to be seen and depends on the track of the low.
