Western New Jersey has already seen some light rain this morning. Look for more periods of light rain to continue today. As seen in the above radar, some is about to move in from the SW. Look for amounts to be about 1/4″ in general.




This rain is associated with a fast moving cold front. This is tied to the same storm that brought snow to the Rockies. No we’re not going to get snow here – sort of. But it will get real windy on Friday as a result of the front pushing through and the intense storm passing by accompanied by high pressure moving in. Winds could easily gust to 40 mph. Please secure any holiday decorations. As always watch wet leaves on the roadways.

Up in the Poconos and far north west New Jersey on Saturday, there’s a chance of seeing some wet snow showers. Temperatures on Saturday will feel colder than they are due to the wind. Temperatures should stay most of the day in the 40’s and perhaps peeking at 50 for a daytime high. Winds should gradually diminish later on Saturday.

Look for periods of rain on Tuesday. Right now we are in between two areas of rain. Steadier rain is to our east and moving away from us. An upper level disturbance is bringing slightly steadier rain to our west and that is heading in our direction. Look for that to arrive later this afternoon into the evening. Right now it looks like 1/4″ to 1/2″ of rain in general – some spots a little more.

A storm system developing to our south and west will move into western New Jersey Tuesday morning and provide needed rain on and off for much for the day. Most areas should pick up 1/4″ – 1/2″ or rain. Some areas that receive heavier downpours will receive more – perhaps as much as 1.” Winds will pick up out of the East and North East and be gusty at time. It will feel like a November day I’m sure.

Veteran’s Day should feature dry weather with partly cloudy skies for western New Jersey and seasonable temperatures. An approaching front will bring a chance of rain shower back into the area on Thursday. Right now the weekends looks good with seasonable weather.

As of 3:30, rain and some thundershowers is moving in from the NW. Keep an eye to the sky for the next few hours.


A cold front will be approaching the area later today. Some pre-frontal showers have already popped up and should be entering western New Jersey within the next hour.

After that we should have a little break then more activity later this afternoon. Don’t be surprised if you even hear a rumble of thunder! Yes it’s October but it does happen occasionally. Look for the afternoon showers to start as early as 2 pm but hopefully should be clear of the area in time for Friday night HS football!

As mentioned this morning, additional showers and thundershowers are about to move into western New Jersey. There are some rumbles of thunder but noting severe at the moment. Look for it to last 30-60 minutes and pick up an additional 0.25-0.50″ of rain

Stewartsville NJ received 0.67″ of new rainfall as of 7 am this morning. As you can see in the radar above, we still have a few more heavier showers that will pass through western New Jersey this morning.

Then the next question is how much, if any additional rain will we receive this afternoon? It all depends on how much sunshine and how warm it gets. The early morning rain was cue largely to a warm front. If you haven’t stepped outside yet our friend humidity is back for a big visit. But a cold front will pass though later today and will probably result in some additonal showers.

The Storm Prediction Center has placed the area just to the west of western New Jersey in a slight risk for severe thunderstorms later today and tonight. Looks for showers and thunderstorms to move through the area from 4-8 pm. We could receive 1 – 1.5″ of new rain.

It took most of the day but the warm front finally made it past our area. As of right now western New Jersey temperatures is in the upper 50’s to around 60.

A band of heavy rain with some thunder and lightning is heading east. As seen above, it’s currently near Harrisburg. Be on the lookout this evening for an initial heavier period of rain and possible a rumble of thunder then periods of rain the remainder of the night.


The cold front will bring us back to what we’re used to which is below normal temperatures. We might even see some flurried Friday night into Saturday. Saturday may stay in the 30’s for high temperature. Keep in mind we should now be in the low 50’s for high temperatures… But it looks like we will have some 50’s for highs next week.

7 Day Forecast

Western New Jersey is experiencing some light rain showers this Wednesday afternoon. The goods news is these showers are the forerunner of some much milder air. This will really be demonstrated on Thursday with high temperatures in the low 60’s! But with warm air comes rain. Today we should only see light amounts and tomorrow about 1/2.”

Unfortunately the warm air will not last too long. A strong cold front will come through late Thursday into Friday morning and cool us down below normal once again. In fact Saturday looks quite chilly and raw with high temperatures in the upper 30’s with a breeze and scattered showers or flurries can’t be rules out.

Look for rain showers to move into the area around lunch time today. They should last into the evening. Rainfall totals should be in the 1/4” range.

Tomorrow will be a nice day for mid-December with mostly sunny skies and high temperatures approaching 50 degrees. But the breeze may make it feel a little cooler. Thursday will continue the breeze with temperatures around 41. The breeze dies down on Friday with a high in the upper 30’s.

The all eye turn to the potential for a weekend snowstorm I mentioned earlier. Several models are showing the potential. The timing looks to be later Saturday into Sunday. As always the exact track and timing will determine precipitation types so stay tuned!
