Happy Saturday South Jersey,
There is good news and there is bad news. The good news is that this extreme heat and heatwave is coming to an end. The bad news is we must deal with the "change" and take the reoccurring chances of thunderstorms daily.What we see happening is a sagging, or sinking cold front moving in from the northwest. The cold front will continue to sink to the south and pass through eastern Pennsylvania and Northern New Jersey tonight. This front is expected to stall out near Southern New Jersey on Sunday. This front should meander in our incivility up until Monday and is then expected to lift to our North on Tuesday. We see almost a repeat in the forecast with another front approaching on Wednesday with the possibility of that stalling out Thursday- Saturday. The good news with this pattern is that we will see a little relief from the heat, however; here in South Jersey, dew points should be remaining in the upper 60s and lower 70s still giving us a muggy warm feeling.
The overnight forecast is looking to be the most interesting as this front approaches our vicinity. Most of the strongest storms during the early evening hours should stay to our west. Because this front isn't expected to arrive until late overnight hours here in South Jersey we will not have toin counterr the influence of daytime surface heating. This should help with the severity of the thunderstorms. We do see the chance for isolated rain and showers tonight and the possibility to see some lighting and hear some thunder, but the worst of what will happen with this boundary will be off to our west. With that being said,tonight'ss temperatures should still linger in the mid 70s on the mainland and at the shore. As we progress into the week, high and low temperatures should return to average for this time of year.
Enjoy the little cool off we get!
Have a good one,
