Forecast for Monday, April 2, 2012

A weak disturbance tonight will bring some heavy showers and perhaps a few isolated thunderstorms to the region.

Winds will pick up on Monday and become blustery in response to a tightening gradient between the departing low impacting us now and an incoming high pressure area. Sustained winds of 20 to 30 MPH with gusts 35 to 45 MPH are possible. Some locally higher gusts cannot be ruled out.

Enhanced fire danger is a a concern...however...I am hoping the rain we receive tonight will prevent us from reaching "critical" fire danger.

There could be a frost and freeze situation developing Monday Night in the Pine Barrens and northern suburbs if the winds decouple.

A shower or a t-storm is possible Tuesday Evening. Otherwise, high pressure sets up and keeps us under plenty of sunshine to end the week.
