Forecast for Monday,April 30, 2012

A widespread frost is likely tonight outside of the urbanized centers. Freezing temperatures are likely in the North and West suburbs and potentially scattered throughout the Pine Barrens of Southern New Jersey.

Monday will start off clear and sunny, followed by some evening clouds. A weak low pressure system and cold front will move across the region on Tuesday. This will bring waves of showers and thunderstorms. The cold front will move to our south and return north as a warm front on Wednesday into Thursday. In the meantime, an area of high pressure will try to push down from the north...but instead of fair might develop an onshore flow on Wednesday keeping us cool with occasional showers, fog, and drizzle.  Wednesday's forecast may be subject to change depending on how strong this push of maritime air is and whether clouds develop or not.

Wednesday Night into Thursday could be active with showers and thunderstorms associated with the warm front. Waves of low pressure may cause some thunderstorm development just to the south of the front and thus Thursday's forecast will be highly dependent on the placement of the front and how well north it progresses throughout the day. Friday and Saturday will be unsettled due to a cold front bringing the chance for showers and thunderstorms. Thursday through Saturday will have sunny breaks at times. A temperature bust is quite possible Wednesday into Saturday and there will likely be a huge contrast from south to north.
