Happy Sunday South Jersey!
A very mild, quiet, but mostly cloudy day will give way to an eventful night and Monday morning. A strong cold front will sweep through the region late tonight and Monday morning bringing with it plenty of rain. The main story for the overnight hours is the potential for severe weather. As of now, South Jersey looks to see winds between 15 to 20 miles per hour. We could see gusts up to 30 35 depending on how much further the upper air gets ahead of the cold front. As the main squall line passes us early tomorrow morning around 6 am, stronger gusts and heavy downpours will be expected. The morning commute looks to see the days heaviest rain and strongest winds. Isolated totals between 0.25" and 0.5" inches is possible. Leaves piled up in drains could lead to pour drainage and flooding. Tonight's overnight lows only look to dip into the mid 50's on the mainland and upper 50's near the shore.
Tomorrow's Daytime highs will stay on the warm side. The rain looks to cool things down but daytime highs look to stay in the low 60's and upper 50's. These mild temperatures aren't something to get attached to. High pressure will move in behind the front into the Ohio Valley on Tuesday reaching the East Coast on B Wednesday. This will dry us out and keep us cool for the remainder of the week. Another cold front will move across the Midwest Valley on Thursday, then move into the Ohio Valley and New England on Friday which will bring us our next round of shores. Just in time for the weekend, high pressure will build behind the front drying us out for the weekend.
Hope everyone continues to enjoy your Sunday!
Until next time,
Meteorologist Sydney Daniel
