Happy Saturday South Jersey!
Finally, that pesky upper level low that had brought all the rain Thursday and Friday has shifted into the Lower Ohio Valley and we are starting to feel the influence of an mid level high. As that cold front moves off the coast a Bermuda high will be able to build into the Western North Atlantic and this will be the main weather driver for the weekend and into next week. This high pressure will really control the pattern through next Friday as temperatures will be on the rise in the next coming days.
The mid level high coming in from the west should really make its presence known Sunday evening and into next week. This high pressure system is anticipated to sink southward and extend eastward later into the week. What we can expect for out forecast is a very extended period of hot weather. Maximum temperatures for the week should be well into the low to mid 90's with overnight lows in the low 70's. Heat index values will be near to 100 or higher in the coming week due to high afternoon humidity levels. The beach will stay slightly less humid and hot with temperatures in the mid to upper 80's for the coming week. We should stay relatively dry in the coming days. The is a slight chance that we may see a stray thunderstorm or two in the region Monday afternoon but the chance is small.
It will be important to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water in the next coming days. If headed to the shore, make sure to pack hats, sunscreen and again, plenty of water.
As we are "movin' on up" this week remember to stay cool.
Have a great day South Jersey,
