The friendly high pressure system that blessed us with remarkable Father’s Day weekend weather will turn devilish on Tuesday. That’s when the warmest temperatures of the year will begin to torch South Jersey and the rest of the Middle Atlantic States, meteorologists say./NWS The friendly high pressure system that blessed us with remarkable Father’s Day weekend weather will turn devilish on Tuesday.

Beginning Friday, a friendly high pressure system began dropping out of Ontario, Canada. The counter-clockwise air flow initially delivered cooler and dryer air, making way for a pleasant and sunny weekend.

Saturday morning’s low temperatures that dipped well into the 50s had a Canadian feel, didn’t they?

A classic Bermuda High will set up this week and deliver South Jersey's warmest weather of the year./NWS A classic Bermuda High will set up this week and deliver South Jersey's warmest weather of the year./NWS But all good things have to come to an end.

The high pressure system will continue its southeasterly trek on Monday before it sets up over Bermuda, becoming a classic Bermuda High.

As a result, South Jersey and the rest of the United States East Coast will be on the backside of the high pressure system’s counter-clockwise flow.

Instead of pulling down cool and pleasant air, the circulation coming up the backside of the Bermuda High will pull up hot and humid weather from the Gulf of Mexico.

How hot could it get?

Much of the area will reach the upper-80s on Monday, the lower-90s on Tuesday and the middle-90s on Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.

Overnight low temperatures will have a difficult time divining into the 60s, making for trying sleeping times.

Be prepared for a few bad-hair days also.

When will the hot weather end?

End of the week weather outlooks show the daily high temperatures in the lower 80s could return by the Thursday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

Warm weather could be around a while for the eastern portion of the United States, according to the 6- to 10-day outlook posted by the National Weather Service's Climate Prediction Center.
