As “Saturday Night’s” Roseanne Roseannadanna was prone to say, “Never mind.”
While the remains of Tropical Storm Karen will drop drenching rains across most of the eastern United States, the National Weather Service now says southern New Jersey may not be among the hardest hit locations.
According to the 7 a.m. Saturday morning, five-day outlook, the National Weather Service is now forecasting about a half-inch of rain to fall through Thursday, Oct. 10 on Southern New Jersey.
Rain is forecast to begin on Monday afternoon and last through Tuesday.
Areas to the west of New Jersey, however, are expected to receive 2-3 inches of rain thanks to a merging of tropical moisture from Tropical Storm Karen and rain from a cold front marching to the east.
As of 7 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, Tropical Storm Karen was located south of New Orleans, moving north at 10 mph. Karen contained maximum sustained winds of 40 mph and was forecast to make landfall on Sunday in New Orleans or southern Mississippi, the NationalHurricaneCenter said.
Tropical moisture from Karen will combine with a vigorous cold front that is moving to the east to drop 1-3 inches of rain on much of the Appalachian Mountains and in areas such as Pittsburgh, Pa.; Buffalo, N.Y.; Cincinnati, Ohio; Detroit, Mich. and Charlestown, W. Va.
However, weather forecasters say much of that moisture is scheduled to stay to the west of Philadelphia which will receive about three-quarters of an inch of rain.
Southern New Jersey high temperatures will remain in the 80s on Saturday, Oct. 5 and Sunday, Oct. 6.
After Monday and Tuesday’s rain, daily high temperatures will cool and settle into the lower 70s.
