Some light rain has moved into Northern New Jersey this morning and the next few hours will will occasional rain which will be mostly light. The heaviest rain will fall this afternoon and evening as a rather strong low pressure will be moving from Pennsylvania through Central New Jersey. Total rainfall for our area will be around 2 1/2 inches which is lower than was in the forecast yesterday and hopefully that trend will continue to keep flooding at a minimum. South of the low pressure system’s path across Southern New Jersey severe weather is likely with damaging winds, large hail and even a chance of a tornado or two.. High temperatures will only be in the 60s in our area but well up into the 80s across the southern part of our state.

Excellent weather for most of the weekend with seasonably warm temperatures and comfortable humidity levels, however some showers may develop Sunday evening.
More showers again on Monday and Tuesday.
