Though forecasters are debating just how warm it will get, it’s a good time to start making your plans for a fan-tabulous weekend now.

A slow-moving high-pressure system will lumber through the Carolinas through Friday. As a result, its clockwise wind flow should bring up increasingly warmer air through next Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

Just how warm will it get?

That’s where weather forecasters differ, though they all agree that most of the time the sun will prevail.

According to AccuWeather, South Jersey mainland daily temperatures will start a parade of 70s on Friday that lasts through the weekend.

Monday becomes the bonus day when mainland South Jersey high temperatures are predicted to reach the upper 70s, AccuWeather says.

Anyone living within an afternoon sea breeze of the Atlantic Ocean could see temperatures that are 5-10 degrees cooler.

The Weather Channel lags behind, but just by a few degrees each day. The Weather Channel is calling for mainland highs in the upper 60s.

The National Weather Service remains the least optimistic among major weather forecasters.

Its meteorologists are forecasting daytime highs in the lower to middle 60s through the time period.

Rain in the ointment?

A passing cold front could deliver scattered showers during the afternoon and evening hours of Friday, April 11, the National Weather Service says.

But then the sky is expected to clear, making for a fabulous weekend.
