Canadian High Pressure Dominates Again

Perfect weather conditions are making their return once again just in time for the weekend! The tropical air mass from the past few days will be suppressed to the south through next week which means an air mass from the Canadian Maritime will generally hold sway on the region's weather.

Today on through Monday, high pressure that will move from Quebec to the Canadian Maritime will be in control. Clear skies to scattered cloud cover can be expected through the forecast periods for New Jersey. An isolated shower or two is possible in the afternoon hours, but most locations will remain dry. Winds will be from the north and northeast at around 5 mph. Temperatures today will rise into the lower to mid 80's for highs. Tomorrow and Sunday temperatures will range from the upper 50's to lower 60's for lows and upper 70's to lower 80's for highs.

Tuesday on through Friday, a series of disturbances will attempt to drive into the Canadian high pressure system from the southwest. These low pressure systems will move along a stalled back door cold front to the south of New Jersey producing scattered to overcast cloud cover and isolated to widely scattered showers. The best potential for showers will be over southern New Jersey. Temperatures will remain near to slightly below normal. Low temperatures will range from the upper 50's to lower 60's over northwestern New Jersey and lower to mid 60's throughout the rest of the state. 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 the state, especially in the Delaware River Valley.
