New Jersey is going to hit the weather lottery again for weekend weather with perfect weather conditions expected now through Sunday due to Canadian high pressure.
Today through Saturday, Canadian high pressure will drift over New Jersey leading to clear skies, light winds from the north and northwest, and low humidity. While the surf will be a bit rough due to the now departed Hurricane Bertha, overall weather conditions at the beach, park, or any other outdoor activity will be excellent. Temperatures will remain on the cool side through the period. Low temperatures will range from the lower to mid 50's over the interior and upper 50's to lower 60's along the coast and in urban locations. High temperatures will range from the upper 70's to lower 80's along the coast and lower to mid 80's in the Delaware River Valley.
On Sunday, high pressure will shift towards the coastal waters of New England while an area of low pressure develops off the Virginia coast. The combination of these two pressure systems will lead to winds veering to the east at 5 to 15 mph over the interior and 10 to 20 mph along the immediate coast. Clouds will increase on Sunday afternoon, especially over southern New Jersey, however no rainfall is expected. Low temperatures will range from the mid to upper 50's over northwestern New Jersey, upper 50's to lower 60's over the New York City suburbs, and lower to mid 60's over the Philadelphia suburbs and the coastline. High temperatures will range from the upper 70's to lower 80's along the coast and lower to mid 80's throughout the rest of New Jersey.
Broken to overcast skies are expected on Monday and Tuesday with only an isolated threat for showers along the immediate coast. Showers will become scattered on Wednesday with an approaching cold front from the west. Temperatures will range from the lower to mid 60's for lows and lower to mid 80's for highs.
