Cold Air Returns to Ocean City

Colder days ahead as we move toward the weekend. A lack of blocking in the upper atmosphere has been keeping our weather pattern moving along quickly. Rollercoaster temperatures continue as we go from spring-like to seasonably chilly back to spring-like conditions in a matter of days. Our current blast of cold air will hang around through the weekend and we could also see some snow as well. Thursday will be the least cold of the next several days but it will be the windiest. A Wind Advisory is in effect until 11am Thursday as brisk northwest winds (20-25mph) with gusts 40+mph will make it feel like its in the 30s despite the sunshine...(more)

Severe T’Storms Possible Wednesday Evening

As we begin March, another surge of warm air moves into the Northeast on Wednesday ahead of a strong cold front. Similar to last Saturday, a battle zone between the warm, unstable air and drier, chilly air will trigger another line of scattered t'storms. The threat of strong gusty winds, frequent lightning, heavy downpours and possible hail as the front moves through Wednesday evening...

Brisk and Chilly Sunday, Milder and Unsettled This Week

Last night's Spring-like t'storms was a battle zone between the unseasonably warm air and more seasonable chilly air behind the front. While the coast has not enjoyed the 70s like the rest of New Jersey, temperatures were still above normal for February...

Brisk Changes Coming This Weekend

The mainland has enjoyed temperatures in the low 70s, while the coast remained on the cooler side as a continuous southerly flow kept us in the 50s. Thanks to ocean temperatures in the low 40s. Still it has been more spring-like than winter and it looks like it will continue at least through the first half of the weekend. A strong cold front expected to arrive later on Saturday which will knock temperatures back to normal. High temperatures will be in the upper 50s Friday & Saturday with a good deal of clouds & fog...

Mild Air Returns This Week

After a brief cool down, the unseasonably "warm" air will return by midweek and continue into the weekend. Temperatures will feel more like April as strong High Pressure will sit off the East Coast and continue to push mild air our way. However, with ocean temperatures still around 40 degrees, winds blowing from the southerly direction will keep the coast much cooler than the mainland.

Delightful Holiday Weekend

It will be a busy weekend as many people start to begin their early season visit to the shore. Fortunately, Mother Nature is supplying us with a mainly sunny and warm holiday weekend. On Saturday, plenty of sunshine with southwesterly winds which will push warm air over our area. Daytime temperatures should reach 60 degrees...

First Wet, Then Strong Winds

A wet finish to the weekend as a low pressure system will be moving through on Sunday giving us a period of rain. However, the main concern will be the wind as this storm will rapidly develop offshore into a major winter storm for New England. A High Wind Warning is in effect for our area from Sunday night through Monday afternoon. Northwest winds of 25-35mph wind gusts up to 60mph are expected as this storm...

Quick Moving Winter Storm For Thursday Morning

Spring-like temperatures are gone and is replaced by a rapidly developing but quick moving winter storm. Heavy rain changing to snow, dropping temperatures and strong gusty winds is on tap for your Thursday. Unlike the rest of New Jersey, we are expected to get the least amount of snow as the brunt of the storm will be in the form of rain, while areas to our North & West will be getting pounded with heavy wet snow...

Winter Storm Arrives Thursday Morning

A Winter Storm is headed our way with the potential of significant to major snowfall over the much of the Northeastern U.S. Pretty amazing given the fact that temperatures will be in the upper 50s today with 60s inland. There will be a big difference in snow accumulations across the state due to the expected track of the storm and changeover times of rain to snow...

Some Snow Possible Despite Mild Temperatures

It's hard to imagine that we are talking about a threat of some snow later this week when daytime temperatures are in the 50s. It has been pretty typical this winter that we go from mild to cold and back to mild within a week and it looks like this pattern will continue.
