It’s official everywhere but on the thermometer hanging out your kitchen window: Spring has arrived. At 7:03 a.m. this morning, the season changed from winter to spring, but don’t expect a warm up until long after the umpire calls out, “Play ball!” next month.
The National Weather Service has pulled back on the springlike temperatures we’ve wanted for the past two months or so.
A persistent high-pressure system in the arctic region will continue to force colder-than-normal weather down across the eastern United States for at least the next two weeks and possibly longer, according to the National Weather Service Climate Prediction Center.
Much of the East Coast has a 100 percent chance of colder than normal temperatures through March 29 with only a suggestion of a return to normal by April 2.
Look for high temperatures in the upper 40s on Wednesday, March 20, with a chance of snow during the overnight hours as a low pressure system passes by. The sun returns for the next several days, but temperatures in South Jersey will remain in the mid- to upper-40s from Thursday through Sunday. The normal South Jersey average daily high is in the mid- to upper-50s for late March.
