Temperatures To Remain At Or Below Normal Until Mid-Week

While clouds developed during the afternoon into the early evening, there was no measurable rainfall in South Plainfield on Saturday.  The brunt of the rain ended up hitting further south.  High temperature on Saturday reached 60 degrees after bottoming out in the low 30s in the morning.

Temperatures were a bit warmer this morning.  Upon waking up at about 7:30 AM, I found that the temperature was sitting at 45 degrees.  The low temperature was 38 degrees.  The NWS office in Mount Holly, New Jersey is calling for a high temperature of 67 degrees, which is about average for this time of year.  Nothing but sunny skies for the next couple days.

There are a couple problems to look out for around the Garden State.  With low humidities and gusty winds expected, the NWS has elevated the fire risk for this afternoon.  Tonight, there will be another issue as clear skies and light winds will provide the optimal setting for radiational cooling.  As a result, there is a Frost Advisory in effect from 2:00 AM to 8:00 AM on Monday morning.  Temperatures are forecast to drop to the mid to upper 30s overnight.

Speaking of temperatures, the seven day forecast indicates that the mercury will be at or below normal until mid-week.  Then, temperatures will be in the low to mid 70s, but there will be a chance of showers and thunderstorms on Wednesday and Thursday.
