Don’t Want to Use the ‘Q’ Word, But This Week’s NJ Weather Is…
There's a superstition in every newsroom I've ever worked in: Never say it's a "quiet" news day. Almost as soon as those words leave your lips, inevitably, something huge will happen.
Weather, however, is a different story, and I can say with some confidence (as much confidence as a non-meteorologist can have) that the forecast for the Garden State this week does indeed appear to be quiet.
That doesn't mean there won't be a little bit of activity going on — most of it Monday, as showers during the daytime will eventually end from north to south. It'll be a cloudy start to the work week, with high temperatures in the lower to mid-50s.
Monday night, showers will linger early in South Jersey, then those clouds give way to clearing skies overnight. Still a bit of a chill in the wee hours of the morning, as lows get down into the mid-20s to lower 30s.
Tuesday and Wednesday are what I've referred to here before as carbon-copy days, both expected to be sunny, with a range of highs from the mid-40s to lower 50s.
Beyond that, it may be a little too soon to truly tell, but I think the conditions will at least be dry for the home openers for the Yankees and Phillies (Mets are in D.C.) Thursday afternoon.
