Good Thursday morning to you, South Jersey! Last night's cold front has finally moved out to sea, and after a few last second isolated showers, we'll begin the clearing process throughout the region. High pressure will begin to nudge eastward behind the front and gradually clear the skies overhead. Highs won't rebound too much despite the clearer conditions later today, but it will still be rather pleasant to be outside. Highs in the low 60s with a stronger northwest wind at 15mph. We'll have a beautiful and calm night tonight as the central core of that area of high pressure situates itself over the Mid-Atlantic. Mostly clear skies and calm winds will allow for us to cool down quite nicely into the upper 30s on the mainland and near 40 on the beaches. This will be perfect weather for viewing the full moon, the "Pink Moon", as well!
Once we begin the day on Friday, that's when we also begin a stretch of weather that can be described as nothing short of beautiful! We'll see mostly sunny skies with a calm southeast wind developing over the afternoon, and high temperatures will reach the mid 60s on the mainland and 60 on the beaches with that sea breeze. Thanks to that rather large and strong core of high pressure, these beautiful conditions will last right into the weekend as well. Both days, Saturday and Sunday, will be nearly identical: Mid 60s by day, low to mid 40s by night, mostly sunny, and rather pleasant. Our average high temperature is 65, and I do believe that we'll stay right around that mark going into the next work week. There is, however, an area of low pressure just down to the south and west that will try to nudge northward, but the latest models indicate that the pre-existing high pressure block that will be in place will keep that low to our south. Overall, we appear to remain dry right into the middle of next week with at least partly sunny skies and highs right around our average of 65 degrees.
Have a great day!
