Rainy, rumbling, soaking South Jersey Saturday

Gusty winds, lightning, thunderstorms and 1-2 inches of heavy rain are in the forecast for a soaking Saturday in South Jersey, according to the National Weather Service.

At least, we didn’t mention snow.

A strong low pressure system is going to cross over the Great Lakes region beginning later today, Friday, Jan. 10. It’s going to reach out and use its might counter-clockwise flow to pull warm and moist air mass up the I-95 corridor, the National Weather Service says.

Saturday's South Jersey high temperatures could still be above 60 degrees as the dinner hour approaches./NWS Saturday's South Jersey high temperatures could still be above 60 degrees as the dinner hour approaches./NWS Rain showers that begin on Friday will turn steadier overnight and into Saturday. Expect pockets of heavy rain on Saturday with rumbles of thunder and flashes of lightning after noon, according to the National Weather Service.

More than one inch of rain is expected in South Jersey. A training effect could railroad the I-95 corridor with 2 inches of rain, the Weather Service says.

A southwesterly wind between 14-18 mph will spike temperatures up to an April-like 63 degrees, according to the National Weather Service forecast.

Rain goes away, warmth lasts

After the rain clears out later Saturday evening, temperatures will lower somewhat. The high temperature for both Sunday and Monday is expected to reach the lower 50s before rain returns on Tuesday.
