Shower risk remains heading into Tuesday


The unsettled weather continues for at least another day. A pair of cold fronts will sweep across the region between Monday night and Tuesday. The first front will bring the best chance of thunderstorms, while the second front lowers the humidity.

Conditions ahead of the first front are ripe for the storms to be very strong, so a Severe Thunderstorm Watch was issued for much of New Jersey through Monday evening. These storms are capable of producing primarily damaging winds.

The risk of severe thunderstorms will continue through the evening hours on Monday. The storms will weaken late, but a wave of low pressure riding along the front will keep the risk of showers around during the overnight hours. Temperatures are expected to drop into the mid 60s.

On Tuesday, the sun will break through the clouds allowing temperatures to climb to around 80 degrees. A secondary cold front will bring enough instability to the atmosphere to produce a few more, widely scattered thunderstorms during the day. Conditions should quiet down rather quickly Tuesday evening and the humidity will drop as the front passes.

The rest of the week looks very nice as high pressure settles across the Ohio Valley and into the Northeast. Temperatures may initially drop back into the mid to upper 70s on Wednesday, but they will start their climb back into the lower and mid 80s on Thursday and Friday.

The heat and humidity could be back on Saturday as temperatures climb toward 90. The heat will be short-lived as a cold front will bring the risk of afternoon showers and thunderstorms.

Father’s Day looks nice and more comfortable with mostly sunny skies. Highs will be in the mid 80s.  Summer also begins that night at 11:31 p.m.
