The weekend starts on a soggy note around the region with a cool front approaching Friday afternoon. This front will take the better part of Friday night into Saturday to pass through the region and off the coast.
Saturday’s weather is not shaping up as the most ideal, especially early in the day across New Jersey, but should gradually improve as we work into the afternoon thanks to a push of dry air advancing east in the wake of the front. Rainfall could be heavy at times Friday night and early Saturday, with the potential for a couple of inches of rain in some locations.
Showers and storms could be around in the early portions of the day along the coastline, perhaps lingering into the afternoon hours. It may take until late Saturday afternoon for decent weather to take hold at the shore. For Delaware, it may take until Saturday night before the front finally pushes far enough south to let some decent weather nudge in.
Sunday is definitely shaping up as the better part of the weekend – sunshine, lower humidity, and a general nice day should take hold for the entire region. Humidity levels will be modest and it will be a very nice, but warm, summer’s day with high temperatures in the middle or upper 80s across the board.
