Seasonable and comfortable weather conditions will continue to be in place through this week even with a few passing showers and isolated thunderstorms. Motherâ€™s Day is up in the air for New Jersey and the Jersey Shore. The Philadelphia and New York City metropolitan areas will remain under the influence of a northwesterly wind pattern aloft through Wednesday, securing tranquil conditions for most.
Tuesday through Wednesday, scattered to broken cloud cover is expected. A few isolated showers and thunderstorms will be a threat for the region, however most locations will remain dry. The strongest thunderstorm will be capable of wind gusts over 40 mph, small hail, heavy downpours, and frequent lightning. Winds will veer from the northwest at 5 to 15 mph to the north Tuesday night and then veer to the southeast at 5 to 10 mph by Wednesday. Temperatures will range from the upper 60's to lower 70s for highs, mid 60's along the immediate coast and Long Island and mid to upper 40's for lows.
