Discussion: When the sun sets like my photo above you know it’s going to be hot the next day. Therefore I expect to see this kind of sunset the next several evenings. The atmospheric setup is pretty straight-forward for this weekend. An upper level ridge is now building for the Mid-Atlantic and NorthEast US. The Bermuda high is cranking. This means hazy, hot and humid at the surface for New Jersey. Please check on your elders and pets and stay as cool and hydrated as possible! The ridge will move out sometime between Monday-Tuesday as an upper-level trough swings in and cools down the surface. It might me stormy and rainy to start next week but we won’t be dealing with the heat wave any longer. I’ll take a closer look at the frontal rain/storm potential on Sunday when I do the Monday-Friday outlook.

Friday (July 19) high temperatures have just about peaked in the low-to-mid 90s for most. Skies took some time for the fog to bake off but are now clearing with relentless humidity. Winds should be light out of the SW. Overnight lows should fail to dip below the mid-70s statewide.

Saturday (July 20) high temperatures should reach well into the 90s statewide. Interior CNJ/SNJ has the best chance to exceed 100. Immediate coastal areas have the best chance to hang in the mid-to-upper 80s once a sea breeze front gets going. Skies should be mostly sunny but hazy hot and humid. Winds should be light out of the W/SW. Overnight lows should again fail to dip below the mid-70s.

Sunday (July 21) high temperatures should again reach well into the 90s with interior CNJ/SNJ having the best shot at reaching 100.  A sea breeze front could keep the immediate coast in the mid-to-upper 80s but not until afternoon/evening hours. Winds should be light out of the W. Overnight lows should fall into the low-to-mid 70s statewide.

An early look at next week indicates the heat and humidity spilling over into Monday. A cold front is then expected to pass in the Monday PM-Tuesday AM period. This should bring relief and knock high temperatures down into the 80s statewide with lows down into the 60s. Let’s talk more about the frontal passage in a few days. Have a great weekend and please be safe! JC

Discussion: The first order of business is tonight’s thunderstorm potential. So yes this is remnant energy leftover from Barry that dissipated over the N Gulf Coast and made it’s way through Arkansas, parts of Missouri, Kentucky, etc. and will now move through NJ tonight. We’re not “getting hit by Barry” though. That seems like a click-bait stretch headline. It’s just remnant energy that functions and behaves like other atmospheric lifting, condensation and dynamics.

I’ve been looking at the instability and wind shear profiles on soundings and I’m not seeing anything crazy. What’s jumping out at me are the very high surface dew point temperatures and a trigger. The dews are self-explanatory. It feels like someone slapped you in the face with a steaming towel when you walk outside. Because of this moisture-rich environment PWAT values are near 2 inches. That’s a lot of potential rain that can fall. This hot and moist surface setup is pure thunderstorm fuel by itself but you still need ignition via lifting. Instability isn’t lift though. Instability is the result of hotter surface air producing negative buoyancy. Hotter air is thinner and moves easier than colder air—therefore it rises easier. Shear can provide lift if enough rolling occurs from different winds at different altitudes. With the upper-jet being so far northward we’re not dealing with alarming shear. I’d say the shear is just marginally sufficient to possibly aid in the sustainment of thunderstorms not the development of.

Again, it’s the trigger that is jumping out at me in conjuction with the dew points. The trigger in this case is a weak low pressure center that should move through NJ between about 8pm and midnight tonight. This low is the result of colliding air, under the Barry remnant lifting, caught up in the coriolis effect. The lifting from this trigger is enough to hoist the ridiculous humidity high enough for condensation and thunderstorm development. It’s also enough to elevate shear at the mesoscale/microscale level enough for tornado formation. Therefore I see strong-to-severe thunderstorms tonight in that 8pm-midnight period moving from WNJ to ENJ. At this point in time NNJ/CNJ look to get hit harder than SNJ but that’s just model guidance. Let’s use our heads and realize that there is thunderstorm fuel statewide with a passing trigger that could drift N or S of the expected CNJ bulls eye. Everything should clear out after midnight tonight. Tomorrow we should see an okay day (not too-too hot) but then the worst of the heat begins for Friday through Sunday possibly into Monday.

The upper-jet is way to our N through Canada (we know that). Between Friday and Monday the upper-level ridge will flex over the Mid-Atlantic and NorthEast US. It’s a relatively flat ridge but it will flex enough to produce likely the hottest conditions of the year. All of NJ, with the exception of the highest NNJ elevations and immediate SENJ coast, should flirt with breaking 100 degrees on each day of the heat wave. Dew points should be 70+ for most areas making it feel like 110+. NNJ elevations and immediate coastal areas might hang in the 90s and cool off quicker for evening hours (especially with any sea breeze front mechanism creation). The sea breeze front is very possible given the upper-level westerly flow that could assist the sea breeze front cycle (rising air inland…sinking air offshore…all assisting E flow at the surface). I doubt any relief will make it much further inland than the barrier island regions however.

The most important aspect of the heat this weekend is safety! Make sure you stay as hydrated and cool as possible. A recommendation is at least 64-80 ounces of water per day. If you have to work outside then take breaks in the shade. Please consider checking on your pets and elders more frequently during this heat wave. Know the difference between heat exhaustion vs heat stroke. By Monday-Tuesday we should have a cold front (possibly stormy) roll through and cool things off at least temporarily. I’ll cover all this more in tomorrow evening’s weekend outlook.

In English: Strong to severe thunderstorms are possible tonight. Storm action should approach WNJ around 8PM and clear ENJ by midnight-ish. Expect heavy rainfall (flash flooding possible), frequent lightning and possibly damaging winds and maybe even some tornadic activity (we’ll see). The NNJ/CNJ border area (near I-78) is currently targeted for the strongest thunderstorm action with extreme NWNJ and SENJ a little less favored. Let’s all have our guards up just in-case. After all there’s thunderstorm fuel everywhere today and we all know the best dynamics can drift slightly N or S. As for the heat it will be hazy hot and humid Friday through Sunday possibly into Monday. We’re talking life-threatening heat especially along the urban I-95 corridor and surrounding areas rich in concrete/pavement. Please stay as hydrated and cool as possible and check on your elders and pets. Everyone have a great rest of your Wednesday. I’ll check in tonight when the thunderstorms are approaching. Be safe!

Discussion: It’s time for a death ridge of heat. Tuesday and Wednesday should get toasty but they won’t represent the finale. Barry’s remnants should track over our region in the Wednesday night-Thursday morning time period. This could produce anything from routine showers and thunderstorms to a severe outbreak. I’ll be watching that period in case the latter becomes likely. For now the former seems reasonable. Thursday should be the least hot day of the week (in the wake of the rain/storms) but this should be short-lived. Friday through Sunday should then feature some of the hottest weather of the year if not THE hottest. Shower and thunderstorm activity should be limited/minimal for the weekend as a capping inversion and other convective inhibiting factors will likely build under such a ridge. Next Monday into Tuesday looks like the next period for storms once the front pushes through the extremely destabilized air mass over the Mid-Atlantic US.

Tuesday (July 16) high temperatures should break 90 for most places. Interior CNJ/SNJ should reach the mid-90s. Skies should be partly sunny and humid. Winds should be light out of the SW. Overnight lows should range from upper-60s to mid-70s NNJ to SNJ.

Who is coming to our annual charity fundraiser this Saturday. Details are available immediately below:

Wednesday (July 17) high temperatures should reach the low-90s for most places. Interior CNJ/SNJ should reach the mid-to-upper 90s. Skies should be partly sunny and humid with isolated showers and thunderstorms around especially overnight into Thursday. Winds should be light out of the SW. Overnight lows should range from near-70 to mid-70s NNJ to SNJ.

Thursday (July 18) high temperatures should top out in the mid-to-upper 80s for most. Skies should be partly sunny and humid. Showers and thunderstorms are possible with AM hours favored for such. Winds should be light out of the W/SW for most but possibly out of the E for the immediate coast (sea breeze effect). Overnight lows should range from upper-60s to mid-70s NNJ to SNJ.

Friday (July 19) high temperatures should reach into the 90s statewide and possibly 100+ for areas away from the ocean. Skies should be mostly sunny and humid. Heat indices should impress. Winds should be light out of the SW for most. Again, the sea breeze effect could produce E winds off the ocean which would slightly cool the immediate coast. You can never rule out a pop-up shower or thunderstorm in this setup but most areas should be clear.

An early look at the weekend indicates excessively hot temperatures and elevated humidity. Probably the hottest weekend of the year. Should be mostly clear but I cannot stress heat safety enough. Stay as hydrated and cool as possible. Have a great rest of your week and please be safe! JC

Discussion: The storm front pushed off the SENJ coast early this morning. Unfortunately there was not much relief from the heat and humidity. This time a year that is common for cold fronts. I felt about .06% relief for a few hours earlier today. We’re now set up for a long stretch of heat and humidity that should run through this weekend and next week. Things should work out this weekend rain-wise as weak area of high pressure influences the Mid-Atlantic US. Monday-forward however should become unsettled especially with Barry’s remnants pushing up our way in the Wednesday-Thursday window. By the time Barry’s remnants get to us it should just be rain and thunderstorms without an organized center of circulation. That’s not to say that the thunderstorms can’t produce severe conditions however. Next week’s heat and humidity should be quite destabilizing to the atmosphere. Basically welcome to the jungle!

Friday (July 12) overnight lows should range from near-60 to near-70 NNJ to SNJ. Winds should remain light out of the W/NW.   

Saturday (July 13) high temperatures should easily reach into the 80s for most areas. CNJ and SNJ areas away from the ocean have the best chance to reach into the lower-90s. Skies should be mostly sunny and humid. Winds should be light out of the W/SW. Overnight lows should range from low-60s to low-70s NNJ to SNJ.

Sunday (July 14) high temperatures should easily reach into the 80s for most areas. CNJ and SNJ areas away from the ocean have the best chance to reach into the lower-90s. Skies should be mostly sunny and humid. Winds should be light out of the W/SW. Overnight lows should range from low-60s to low-70s NNJ to SNJ.

An early look at next week indicates hazy, hot and humid conditions with temperatures into the 90s for many places. You have to assume thunderstorms will fire in such a pattern. Everyone have a great weekend and please be safe! JC

Discussion: Thunderstorms are arriving from SW to NE along and just NW of the I-95 corridor. Initial activity moving into NWNJ is weak sauce but some stronger storms are moving out of the Baltimore/Wilmington area towards Philadelphia and Trenton. Most daylight activity today should be confined to WNJ in general but could still produce severe conditions.

A more organized linear segment of thunderstorms should push through all of NJ tonight between about 7pm and 11pm. There might be some remnant energy that fires off after 11pm tonight into early-Friday AM hours but the main event looks like this evening.

The most impressive dynamic that stands out to me is Precipitable WATer (PWAT). The entire garden state is under PWAT values of 1.5 or greater. This tells me that flash flooding is easily achievable from mature thunderstorm cells. Instability and wind shear are nothing crazy but still marginally sufficient enough to still support severe thunderstorm development. As in most cases, SENJ/ENJ are a little less favored than NWNJ/WNJ for the worst of it due to marine influence and other coastal thunderstorm inhibiting factors. Don’t let your guard down however as the threat is statewide.

Once this all clears out (with the cold front) during the early AM hours of tomorrow (Friday) the entire rest of the weekend looks clear and sunny thanks to a weak area of high pressure moving through. Temperatures should be warm throughout the weekend with humidity gradually transitioning from drier to muggy by Sunday. This will correlate with drier N flow ahead of the high and muggier S flow behind the high. Then next week we bake under the stubborn ridge.

In English: Thunderstorms are starting to impact SWNJ and this activity should spread into CNJ/SNJ by late-afternoon. A broad line of thunderstorms should then consolidate and push through all of NJ from W to E between about 7pm and 11pm. Thunderstorms could be severe (wind and/or hail) and feature flash flooding from heavy downpours. Everything should taper off between midnight and sunrise tomorrow yielding a clear, sunny and summery weekend. Be safe! JC

Discussion: If you follow weather beyond the Garden State of New Jersey you know that a tropical system is forming in the northern Gulf of Mexico. Primary impacts (high winds, flooding rain and storm surge/tide) from this tropical development (soon to be named Barry) should occur near coastal Louisiana and Mississippi. Secondary impacts (lighter winds and flooding rain) should occur for Alabama and parts of Tennessee. The Mississippi river is facing decent elevation potential from this. New Jersey however is not in danger of any primary or secondary impact from Barry.

Our upper-level pattern however should be influenced in the following way. Barry will have an area of lower-height anomalies over it. That will collide with a developing ridge over the E/C US. The upper-low should pump the upper-ridge temporarily (see above image) until both forces equalize. This should occur between next Monday and Friday. What this means for New Jersey is a heat wave and likely the hottest temps of the year so far.

Once the upper dynamics equalize New Jersey should return to average geopotential height anomalies which will cool us off at the surface. The intensity of the ridge and the heat it will produce at the surface in NJ is directly related to Barry’s upper-level closed off energy. Without Barry the ridge would likely develop weaker which would mean temperatures not as hot next week.

In the shorter-term expect rain and thunderstorms to push through between early Thursday afternoon and early Friday morning (clearing by rush hour). The cold front will likely not move through until later Friday. So most Thursday PM and Friday AM rain and storm activity should occur under warm and humid conditions. The weekend, at this point, is looking pretty good once the Friday nonsense clears out. When I say good I mean warm, not too humid, and mostly sunny—about what you want for a mid-July weekend.

In English: Barry will likely slam into Louisiana and make it very warm and humid for New Jersey between next Monday and Friday. Thunderstorms should be around but the heat and humidity should dominate the headlines for next Monday-Friday. For now rain and thunderstorms are likely Thursday PM through Friday AM. The weekend looks dry as of now but temps and humidity should build by Sunday ahead of the real hot stuff Monday-forward. According to long range model data we should cool off and dry out next Saturday as the heat wave ends. I’ll be keeping close watch on this and will speak more to it all tomorrow night in the weekend outlook. Have a great rest of your Wednesday and please be safe! JC

Discussion: Onshore flow, from the developing high to our N/NW, has provided some relief today. That coastal I was watching should pass just to the S of NJ tonight through tomorrow morning. For that reason a few showers and thunderstorms could be around for Monday morning’s AM commute especially for SNJ. After that high pressure will quickly regain control and provide a beautiful Monday afternoon through Wednesday morning via N flow. By Wednesday afternoon the flow should switch to the S/SW and that should bring back the humidity. SW flow should then intensify until a cold front pushes through in the Thursday night-Friday morning time frame. The front should provide short relief as temperatures and humidity climb back for Saturday and Sunday. Another coastal disturbance is modeled nearby for Sunday into Monday. I’ll keep an eye on it this week should it trend towards a higher impact scenario.

Monday (July 8) high temperatures should reach near-80 for most areas maybe mid-80s for SWNJ/WCNJ. Skies should be partly sunny with possibly a few AM showers or thunderstorms around. Winds should be light out of the E/SE for most. A bit breezier along the immediate coast. Overnight lows should range from upper-50s to mid-60s from NNJ to SNJ.

Tuesday (July 9) high temperatures should reach the mid-to-upper 80s for most areas. Skies should be mostly sunny. Winds should be light out of the N/NE. Overnight lows should range from upper-50s to near-70 NNJ to SNJ.

Wednesday (July 10) high temperatures should reach well into the 80s for most. Interior CNJ/SNJ should push into the 90s. Skies should be partly sunny. Winds should be light out of the E/NE. Overnight lows should range from near-60 to near-70 NNJ to SNJ.

Thursday (July 11) high temperatures should reach well into the 80s for most. Interior CNJ/SNJ should at least flirt with 90. Skies should be mostly sunny and humid with PM rain and thunderstorms possible along a cold front. Winds should be light out of the S/SW. Overnight lows should range from mid-60s to lower-70s NNJ to SNJ.

Friday (July 12) high temperatures should reach the mid-to-upper 80s for most. Skies should be partly sunny after any AM frontal rain and thunderstorms depart. Winds should be light out of the SW. Overnight lows should range from upper-50s to lower-70s NNJ to SNJ.

An early look at the weekend indicates more heat, humidity and thunderstorm chances. I’m watching another possible coastal development for the Sunday-Monday period. Let’s see how it looks in a few days. Everyone stay cool and be safe! JC

It’s time to harness WeatherTrends360 technology and look at how the rest of July 2019 should play out. WeatherTrends360 algorithms are documented with an 84% verification rate and are based on oceanic water cycles, time table series and very complex mathematics. The best takeaway from this data are general trends (cool vs warm, rainy vs dry, etc). I’m always hesitant to forecast specific surface conditions (rainfall amounts, snowfall amounts, winds, etc) beyond the 7 -day forecasting period. But temperature and precipitation trends are what WeatherTrends360 does best with their proprietary mathematical analysis derived from over 150 years of reactive pattern data. For this reason, let’s call this a long-range discussion of expectations rather than a locked-in long-range forecast.

The following diagram is calculated for the meat and potatoes of New Jersey in general. Please keep in mind that micro-climate influences can vary. NWNJ elevations and immediate coastal areas, for example, will likely verify slightly cooler than illustrated due to elevation and marine flow influence. Interior CNJ/SNJ (closer to Philly/Trenton) slightly warmer than illustrated. But for most of New Jersey this diagram should suffice for the general idea of temperature and precipitation trend analysis.

Discussion: Here we are in statistically the hottest time of year. A persistent slight negative phase of the North American Oscillation (NAO) has produced a weak block as of late. What this has done is prevent the extreme ridging from forming over the Mid-Atlantic US. Therefore the upper-jet stream is closer to NJ rather than far to our N. At the surface this means lower temperatures and higher humidity. Don’t get me wrong I realize it’s hot and muggy right now. But we’re dealing with 80s and 90s with excessive humidity not 100+ with traditional humidity. After all humidity is a temperature buffer. Its why BBQ pitmasters smoke their meats with moisture pans…for consistency of lower temperature. Sorry for the analogy but in summary the excessive humidity has prevented the excessive heat and instead only allowed for regular summer heat. I expect to see more of the same through July.

Also sea surface temperatures off the New Jersey coast are running 2-3 degrees Celsius above-average. I was surprised to see values of 72-73F up and down the coast this morning. Usually we’re just about reaching 70 this time of year. Given the blocking pattern and warmer seas its not a horrible pattern for tropical development and/or sustainment should anything form in the Atlantic Hurricane Basin. It’s still early in the hurricane season but by the end of July we’ll be getting closer to the peak.

In English: I would expect the warm, muggy and stormy pattern to continue through most of July. I don’t see any prolonged crazy hot periods where temps break 100 and heat indices break 115 kind of stuff. I see lots of 80s and 90s with higher humidity and a consistent stream of scattered stormy periods moving from W to E. Again that is in general. Could we see a handful of super hot days? Sure, its July. But for the most part the status quo should remain. Have a great month of July and please be safe! JC

Discussion: The pattern seems pretty locked this week. If you are familiar with Florida weather then you should have a good idea what to expect. Basically every day will reach summery-warm temperatures (at least 80s everywhere 90s away from the ocean). Most of each day should be partly-to-mostly sunny however diurnal instability could build instances of isolated-to-scattered showers and thunderstorms during afternoon/early evening hours. Overall humidity should be elevated. The drivers of this pattern consist of the Bermuda high setting up along with a train of weak disturbances colliding into the Bermuda highs return flow—right over the Mid-Atlantic US. While this doesn’t render a complete washout on any given day it certainly opens the door for afternoon/evening showers and thunderstorms every day through the rest of this weekend and weekend. High pressure should clear some of this out late-Saturday night into Sunday morning. This might render Sunday as the best feeling day of this forecast period. A weak coastal disturbance is then showing for Sunday PM into Monday. Model guidance, earlier this week, had this impacting NJ. Today’s data has the high holding this to the SE of NJ. I will keep an eye on it should it decide to track closer in reality.

Tuesday (July 2) high temperatures should reach well into the 80s for most areas. 90+ is possible away from the ocean. Skies should be partly sunny and humid with showers and thunderstorms possible during afternoon/evening hours. Winds should be light out of the W/SW. Overnight lows should range from lower-60s to lower-70s NNJ to SNJ.

Wednesday (July 3) high temperatures should reach the mid-to-upper 80s for most areas. 90+ is possible away from the ocean especially for WCNJ/SWNJ. Skies should be partly sunny and humid with showers and thunderstorms around during afternoon/evening hours. Winds should be light out of the W/NW. Overnight lows should range from lower-60s to lower-70s NNJ to SNJ.

Thursday (July 4) high temperatures should reach the mid-to-upper 80s for most areas. Skies should be partly sunny and humid with showers and thunderstorms around during afternoon/evening hours. Winds should be light out of the E/SE. Overnight lows should range from lower-60s to lower-70s NNJ to SNJ.

Friday (July 5) high temperatures should reach the mid-to-upper 80s for most areas. Skies should be partly sunny and humid with showers and thunderstorms around during afternoon/evening hours. Winds should be light out of the SE. Overnight lows should range from near-70 to mid-70s NNJ to SNJ.

An early look at the weekend (July 6 + 7) indicates more of the same for Saturday…highs in the 80s (maybe 90 inland), partly-to-mostly sunny skies most of the time, routine summer elevated humidity, PM showers and thunderstorms, etc. Sunday could be the nicest day of the stretch as high pressure pushes the stormy humid area to the SE of NJ (out to sea). We would still be warm and sunny but with slightly reduced humidity and light northerly winds. Hopefully the coastal disturbance that could impact NJ Sunday PM into Monday is also held out to sea. I’ll be keeping an eye on this and will update if needed. Have a great holiday stretch and please be safe! JC

Discussion: Upper-level ridging will temporarily give way to a shortwave/ULL between Sunday-Tuesday. That will eventually cool us off a little at the surface. But from now through Sunday morning the heat and humidity should remain. The dynamics Saturday, especially Saturday afternoon/early-evening, are interesting as the shortwave approaches from the N/NW. This will put much of the region in an area of positive vorticity advection and under divergence. These atmospheric physics could enhance the development dynamics of thunderstorm cells. Based on what I’m seeing the Northeast US looks stormier than the Mid-Atlantic US. All of NJ however should still plan for afternoon/early-evening thunderstorms, some possibly severe. By the end of Sunday a cold front should roll through with more impact on humidity than temperatures. Sunday should still start warm but by Sunday night you should feel the relief. This relief should last through Monday and into some of Tuesday before the ridge rebuilds and loads the surface with more heat and humidity.

Friday (June 28) high temperatures should easily reach into the 80s for most areas. Areas away from the ocean, especially SWNJ/WCNJ, have the best chance to break 90. Coastal areas should max out cooler via sea breeze. Skies should be mostly sunny and humid. You can never rule out isolated pop-up showers and thunderstorms in this kind of setup but nothing scattered/widespread is expected. Winds should be light out of the E/SE. Overnight lows should range from mid-60s to low-70s NNJ to SNJ.

Saturday (June 29) high temperatures should reach a few degrees hotter than Friday. Skies should start mostly sunny and build cloud coverage throughout the day with a good chance for afternoon/early-evening thunderstorms. They have the potential to meet severe criteria. Winds should be light out of the W. Overnight lows should range from near-60 to low-70s NNJ to SNJ.

Sunday (June 30) high temperatures should reach into the 80s for most. A few spots could flirt with 90 away from the ocean. Skies should be partly-to-mostly sunny with less humidity. A few isolated thunderstorms might still be around especially for NNJ/NENJ. Winds should be light out of the NW. Overnight lows should range from mid-50s to mid-60s NNJ to SNJ.

An early look at next week indicates more slightly above-average temperatures with increased humidity. No major rain systems are currently showing but isolated pop-ups are always possible in a hot pattern. Let’s see how it looks on Sunday. Have a great weekend and please be safe! JC
