There's light rain, drizzle and patchy fog in parts of the Tri-State Area this morning as another weak ripple of low pressure continues to slide to the north and east, just off the shores of New Jersey and south of Long Island... The regional radar mosaic as of 4 a.m. was showing the bulk of the rain occurring at the Jersey Shore, and in fact, Atlantic City's International Airport has had almost an inch of rain since yesterday morning! Belmar has picked up a little over half an inch, but most of the other hourly reporting stations across the area have had less than a tenth of an inch of rain since yesterday morning.
Therefore, our wettest period of nuisance rain, drizzle, and fog will be from now until noon time.
Fog isn't expected to be all that dense, but it appears that the European global forecast model had the best solution yesterday — because it was the numerical model that was actually printing out close to a third of an inch of rain in the City this morning...
The G.F.S. and other guidance wasn't churning out nearly as much rain, insisting that there would probably only be some spotty drizzle early this morning... Our rainfall maps for the total amount of rain dating back to yesterday will show the sharp contrasts between how much rain fell at the Jersey Shore when compared to the rest of the Tri-State Area. You can see that on our web site at 7online.
When this rain tapers off later on this morning (probably sometime between 8 and 10 a.m.), there will be a lot of leftover clouds... There may only be a few peeks of sun this afternoon, assuming that the winds are going to be shifting to the southwest for a while — and then the next, approaching cool front will probably trigger another shower between the hours of 2 and 6 p.m.
The weather for tonight's Game Three of the A.L.D.S. should be dry, with evening clouds expected to start breaking up later tonight... The first pitch temperature near 60 degrees (at approximately 7:37 p.m.) will be falling into the mid-50s as the game carries on, so be prepared for the cooler conditions by 10:30 or 11 p.m.
There will be a fair amount of sunshine returning tomorrow, and no aspects/details of the forecast have changed for the rest of this week... Most temperatures will be running in the lower 60s tomorrow, Friday and Saturday... The chances of getting a brief shower on Friday are fairly small, but still cannot be ruled out entirely. The suburbs may see the first frost of the season overnight Friday into Saturday morning!
Have a good day!!!
