However, we will have to slosh our way through today’s April showers, according to weather forecasts.

Those 70s temps return again?

It’s true. The change in weather system flow that has finally moved the path that storms take through the eastern United States will allow warm air to return to the area later this week.

Southwesterly winds will push temperatures steadily higher during the later portions of the week. By the time next Sunday rolls around, temperatures could reach the lower 70s across the South Jersey mainland, according to the National Weather Service.

Monday’s rain

Heavy bands of rain could be moving iinto the South Jersey area and just in time for the afternoon commute on Monday, April 7./Weatherbell Analytics, www.weatherbell.com Heavy bands of rain could be moving iinto the South Jersey area and just in time for the afternoon commute on Monday, April 7./Weatherbell Analytics, www.weatherbell.com A long reach of a low pressure system that is moving up from the Tennessee Valley through the Ohio Valley this afternoon will give us a downer of a Monday in South Jersey.

The rain that was expected to hold off until this afternoon could dampen the late morning hours instead, according to the National Weather Service Mount Holly Forecast Center.

Heavy rain, and possibly a few thundershowers could hamper the afternoon commute. About a half and inch to three-quarters of an inch could fall between noon and midnight, according to rainfall forecasts posted by the National Weather Service Mount Holly Forecast Center.

South Jersey could escape the heaviest of the rain on Monday, April 7. However, up to three-quarters of an inch of rain could fall across the Garden State./www.weatherbell.com South Jersey could escape the heaviest of the rain on Monday, April 7. However, up to three-quarters of an inch of rain could fall across the Garden State./www.weatherbell.com Most of the steady rain will end before our digital clocks strike midnight, the Weather Service says. A few lingering showers might last into the early morning hours, however.

Monday’s high temperatures will reach 56 degrees. Heavy cloud cover will trap in the heat and keep overnight temperatures from falling any lower than 50 however.

Top-10 Tuesday for South Jersey

The sun returns and so do spring-like temperatures that could reach the mid-60s on Tuesday, April 8, the according to the National Weather Service forecast. However, the mid-afternoon arrival of a cold front will knock mid-week high temperatures closer to 60 degrees on Wednesday and Thursday.

Mid-week South Jersey sunshine

Lots of sunshine will fill the skies this week though temperatures will remain a few degrees below normal.

We’ll reach near 60 degrees on Wednesday, 58 degrees on Thursday before warming up to 67 on Friday, according to the National Weather Service.

A cold front could deliver a little overnight rain – there’s a 40-percent chance of precipitation – during the overnight hours on Friday into Saturday.

Weekend gem for South Jersey

Grab the rakes, the golf clubs or polish off the motorcycle because the early forecasts call for a gem of a weekend for Saturday and Sunday, April 12-13, according to the National Weather Service.

Both days will be sunny and some temperature could soar to May-like levels.

Saturday’s high temperature could reach the lower-60s again. A southwesterly wind could move temperatures more than 10 degrees warmer on Sunday. South Jersey high temperatures might be able to reach the low- to mid-70s, according to one forecast model.

Yippee, we’ll take it.
