Sun-sational Saturday for South Jersey

It’s a no-brainer for which day you’ll want to plan your outdoor activities for the weekend of Saturday, Dec. 28 and Sunday, Dec. 29 in South Jersey. It’s Saturday when a sunny sky will fuel an afternoon mainland high temperature to near 53 degrees, according to the National Weather Service Mount Holly Forecast Center.

Saturday’s high is expected to be about 10 degrees warmer than normal and could be the last time we see temperatures climbing into the 50s until Groundhog’s Day.

Sunday slide to a rainy side

A clipper system moving across the Canadian border with the United States will combine energy with a low pressure system moving out of the Carolinas to deliver a daylong soaker on Sunday, Dec. 21 for South Jersey.

Rain could begin as early as 11 a.m. in South Jersey, the National Weather Service forecasts. Up to an inch could fall during the day on Sunday and another half an inch of rain could fall during the overnight hours.

Overall, 1-2 inches of rain could fall across South Jersey before the system pulls out of the area on Monday morning.

New Year’s chill down

South Jersey mainland high temperatures will only reach 48 degrees on Monday, and 39 degrees on Tuesday. New Year’s Eve temperatures are likely to be in the upper 20s around midnight. The New Year’s Day high temperature for South Jersey might only reach 34 degrees, the National Weather Service forecasts.
