Soaking storm in store for Easter and Passover weekend

Soaking storm in store for Easter and Passover weekend

Good Friday is forecast to see sunshine during the morning, with cloud throughout the rest of the day. After afternoon temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday reaching the mid/upper 70s, we will likely struggle to reach 50-degrees Friday afternoon.

A storm system moves in for Easter Sunday, but the timing might be delayed a few hours.

On Thursday evening, Mr Deakin warned that there could be some "mist and sea fog on the coast" but as we go into Friday morning, most of that mirky weather will fade away.

But is is expected to be cooler in the evenings, with temperatures dropping down to 7C and 9C.

Those with holiday plans will want to keep the weather in mind for Easter weekend.


Temperatures are expected to rise and by tomorrow, it will become much warmer. It will be mostly cloudy with a few showers possible in the afternoon.

A warm front will approach the area Thursday and bring clouds and a couple of showers. Any showers here would be very spotty after midnight and the thinking is that lines of storms will race late through the night and reach western IN around sunrise but IN a weakened state. Friday night and Saturday look particularly wet.

However, the warm and sunny weather might not stick around for everyone through the whole weekend. The best chance for it would be on south-facing coastal areas, where there could be some minor splash-over during high tide Saturday.

Easter looks like a mix of sun, clouds, and afternoon showers, and then the sun takes over definitively on Monday. Between now and Saturday morning, the weather service expects 1 to 2 inches of rain across much of New Jersey, and 1.5 to 3 inches in and around the Lehigh Valley.

Saturday: Unseasonably mild. Still some showers.
