Hottest day of the summer so far today in western New Jersey

I think its safe to say that today will be the hottest day of the warm season so far. Temperatures combined with humidity levels will make it feel miserable and borderline dangerous and unhealthy in some locations.

SPC has placed all of western New Jersey in a slight risk of severe weather today

Strong winds and thunderstorms possible later today

Western New Jersey received a trace of snow and sleet in the past 24 hours and about 1/3″ of rain.

even though Wednesday has started off raw and drizzling, it won’t finish that way. Warmer air will push into western New Jersey later today raising temperatures considerably.

Wwith this warmer weather will come chances for heavier rain and strong gusty winds.

Folks in western New Jersey were treated to a light show last evening from the approaching thunderstorms that slowly moved into the area from eastern PA. They took there time but did arrive and gave part of the area over 1″ of rain. Stewartsville received 1.10″ of new needed rainfall. Parts of eastern PA receive 3″ of rain while other areas of western NJ didn’t receive quite as much.

Summertime heat and humidity are here this week. Tuesday-Thursday will be the hottest weather so far with summer with highs in the mid 90’s we humidity to boot. There could be some scattered thunderstorms around today with a greater chance Thursday as another front approaches.

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.
