April 4th, 2013 Forecast

Today's winds will gradually subside after sunset, with a calmer, clear, and crisp night in store for the region. We could flirt with some record low temperatures in the Pinelands overnight as lows could get into the lower and middle 20's in some of the colder spots away from the ocean as a lack of wind and very low dew points provide the perfect environment for temperatures to drop off after sunset.  Lows tonight will range from 23 in the cooler Pinelands to around 30 in the city.  Winds will be under 10 mph after sunset tonight.

Thursday shapes up as arguably the nicest overall day from a lack of wind standpoint as winds will be under 20 mph, mainly on the order of 7-14 through the region.  Temperatures will get into the 54-60 range throughout the region, warmest south of town, as skies will be mainly sunny with west and southwest breezes.  Thursday is the calm before Friday's rains.

As of now, it appears Friday's rains will be along and east of the city for the most part and mainly in the morning hours.  This could result in the Phillies game getting played, although not necessarily in the nicest of conditions.  We could see 60 as soon as Sunday and yes, as of now we have a 70 in the forecast for next Wednesday.  We're cautiously optimistic that warmth surges in next week -- it could actually sooner than that if a warm front lifts north of the region in time.  For now, we've held our optimism in check for Monday and Tuesday as a shower (Monday) and clouds (Tuesday) may be around.
