Showers tonight give way to tranquil weekend

An intensifying area of low pressure off the South Caroline coast this morning will move east-northeast into the Atlantic Ocean by tomorrow morning.  The low pressure system will be just close enough to kick off the start of the weekend with periods of showers, especially over southern New Jersey, before high pressure can take hold.

Clouds will increase through the day as the low pressure system shifts off the Mid Atlantic coast.  Winds will be from the northeast at 10 to 20 mph, increasing to 15 to 30 mph along the coast.  Temperatures will rise into the upper 30's over the interior and lower 40's along the coast.

Tonight through tomorrow morning, showers will invade the coast and will be heavy at times.  While locations west of the Delaware River and north of New York City will remain mostly dry, an isolated shower can not be ruled out.  Winds will be from the northeast at 10 to 20 mph over the interior and 15 to 30 mph along the coast.  Temperatures will fall into the lower to mid 20's for lows tomorrow morning after the precipitation exits off the coast in the early morning hours.

Broken to overcast skies are expected tomorrow on through Sunday.  Winds will be from the northwest at 10 to 20 mph, decreasing to 5 to 15 mph by Sunday afternoon.  Temperatures will be closer to normal with highs in the lower to mid 40's and lows in the mid 30's on Sunday morning.

High pressure will be in control on Monday and Tuesday with scattered cloud cover and tranquil weather conditions.  Temperatures will return to near normal levels for the first time in weeks.  Temperatures will range from the lower to mid 30's for lows and upper 40's to lower 50's for highs.

An area of low pressure will bring rain along the coast and periods of snow over the interior Wednesday afternoon on through Thursday.  The exact track of the storm is very much unknown at this time along with the strength of the storm.  However, significant snowfall over the interior and higher elevations is expected.  Temperatures on Wednesday will range from the upper 30's to lower 40's for lows and mid to upper 40's for highs.  Temperatures on Thursday will range from the upper 20's to lower 30's for lows and mid to upper 30's for highs.
