A clearing to come

Posted: Updated:

Happy Saturday South Jersey!

Well, there has been plenty of moisture and rain the past couple of days. This low will still maintain that moisture feed from the Atlantic tonight. We will continue to see chances fore a few scattered showers across much of South Jersey. Temperatures I am expecting to be a touch cooler than what we have seen the past couple nights. Expect lows in the mid to upper 50's on the mainland and low 60's along the shore. As the low dies out some rain will linger in the early morning hours for Sunday.

Sunday looks to be a mainly breezy day with considerable cloudiness. Winds look to be out of the northeast with gusts continuing to be 20-30 mph. There is coastal flood advisory that has been extended until 8 pm Sunday. Also the minor tidal flooding ongoing Saturday evening, will occur again Sunday during 3-6pm high tide.A strong ridge over New England will ease eastward into the Western Atlantic by the middle of the week.The rest of the week still looks to be on the windy side but we will get a nice push of drier air from the north starting Sunday and into the week.

Here is a little bit on what you can expect as far as tides and costal flooding go. I mentioned that we will see more tidal flooding at high tide on Sunday. That is mainly do the surface high pressure system to the north  more or less bumping into this weakening low and keeping a high pressure gradient going through the different heights in the atmosphere. So while the rain may go away Sunday and into Monday, There is still a possibility that we could see more minor tidal flooding to start the work week. I will have more details for next weeks entire forecast to come tomorrow.

Hope everyone is can continue to enjoy a wet, windy, but cozy Saturday.

Until next time,

Meteorologist Sydney Daniel
