Another Cool But Seasonal Weekend for NJ
Slightly cooler temperatures are expected for this weekend again.
National Weather Service
According to the National Weather Service, a cold front will pass south of the area this afternoon and remain to our south through Thursday morning while high pressure builds off the Northeast coast.
Highs are expected to get up to the 70s today. But tomorrow, there will be nearly a 10 degree swing as temperatures are only expected in the low 60s.
A warm front is expected to affect our area on Thursday, and will bring temperatures back up to the 70s on Friday.
The National Weather Service states that a strong cold front will move through the area Friday night into Saturday morning. This cold front will bring cool temperatures to our area this weekend, just like last weekend. Temperatures are forecasted to be in the 60s.
Overnight temperatures this weekend may dip below 40s degrees. Fortunately, temperatures will not reach below freezing. We haven’t seen below freezing overnight temperatures since the first week of April.
Spring seems to be moving in fairly slowly compared to last year. It may not seem like it, but the temperatures we are experiencing now are our seasonal average temperatures.
In New Brunswick, for the month of April, they currently have a cumulative temperature departure of +53 degrees. This was mostly due to the extremely warm temperatures during the middle of last week. But only five days so far in April, did New Brunswick have temperature departures with a negative value.
