Saturday will start out cold but dry across the region, similar to this morning. Clouds will linger across the southern portion of the area as a coastal storm continues to gather steam with the new surface low deepening off the North Carolina coast.
As the storm progresses northward, pushing against a rather strong area of high pressure moving into New England, a tightening pressure gradient will lead to increasing onshore flow. Winds will be most notable along the New Jersey shore with gusts approaching 25-30 mph by mid to late afternoon, especially from Atlantic City southward. As such, a Wind Advisory will be going into affect for coastal Atlantic, Cape May, and Sussex Counties for the remainder of Saturday and lasting into Sunday afternoon.
Temperatures will top out ONLY in the 30s and 40s. The easterly winds will make it feel about 5 to 10 degrees colder at times.
The Extended Outlook
December 1-15 Temps will be right around average with a couple rain storms. Very little snow if any.
December 16-31 Temps will average slightly below normal with snow likely. Snow fall above normal.
A white Christmas is very possible this year.
