Rainy Friday Ahead of Sunny Spring Weekend



    Janice Huff’s late evening forecast for Thursday, April 11 (Published Thursday, April 11, 2013)

    A wave of low-pressure movement over the Great Plains will bring more rain to the tri-state Friday, meteorologists say. 

    It could be stormy in some spots, and where temperatures are cool enough, there is a threat of patchy ice forming, especially to the north and west of the city. 

    Track the storm on the Interactive Radar.

    The morning commute will be very wet across central and western New Jersey, as well as across the city through about noon, meteorologists say. After a short break, there will be another round of heavy rain between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m., and possibly some thunderstorms.

    It should dry out by 10 p.m., and temperatures this weekend will stay about average for early-to-middle spring in the high 50s. Mostly sunny skies should make it feel a bit warmer.

    Forecasters say the mercury jumps back up to 60 degrees by early next week.
