A melting week ahead

Posted: Updated:

Happy Sunday South Jersey!

I am guessing everyone is beginning to feel the change in the air. Humidity levels are up, temperatures are rising, and the rain is holding off. The current high pressure system that is centered off the Delmarva Coast will continue to build westward through the night and early morning. It should reach the Ohio River Valley by Monday night and remain in that vicinity through Wednesday. You can expect it to then sink southward later into the week and keep the entire week, dry, sunny, and hot.

Tonight you can expect to be much like what we saw last night. Temperatures in the low 70's on the mainland and the coast. As everyone wakes up in the morning they can once again see some heavy fog. Once the fog burns off temperatures should be driven well into the upper 80's and into the 90's on the mainland. Temperatures on the coast are expected to max out in the mid to upper 80's for most of the week. Apparent temperatures this upcoming week will approach and in urban areas exceed 100 degrees. For tomorrow, there is a slight chance that we will see a few quick pop up showers and thunderstorms due to a frontal boundary to our north moving south during the day.

This is a brief synopsis of what is to follow in the upcoming week. Temperatures will stay high, dew point temperatures will stay into the 70's and the rain should hold off for most of the week until we see a cold front approach next Saturday. There is still plenty of time to monitor the end of next week for exact timing of the front. In the meantime, make sure to stay hydrated drinking plenty of water and continue to apply and re-apply your sunscreen.

Have a great day South Jersey!
