A one-day, Wednesday warm-up is about to remind those chilled by last weekend’s cool temperatures that the summer of 2014 is far from over, according to the National Weather Service./NWS A one-day, Wednesday warm-up is about to remind those chilled by last weekend’s cool temperatures that the summer of 2014 is far from over, according to the National Weather Service./NWS A one-day, Wednesday warm-up is about to remind those chilled by last weekend’s cool temperatures that the summer of 2014 is far from over, according to the National Weather Service.

High temperatures across the South Jersey mainland could be nearly 15 degrees warmer than they were on Sunday, according to the latest forecast from the Mount Holly Forecast Center.

South Jersey mainland high temperatures should push past 90 degrees and reach 91 degrees during the heat of the day in areas such as Mays Landing, Hammonton and Egg Harbor City, the National Weather Service said.

Thanks to a cooler Atlantic Ocean, high temperatures in the resorts of Atlantic City, Ocean City, and Wildwood will be limited to the middle-80s.

However, Wednesday’s humidity levels are going to creep up past 60 percent and push the heat index into the middle-90s in South Jersey and near 100 along the I-95 corridor in places such as Camden, Philadelphia, West Chester and Newark.

The storms aren’t expected to be severe and only about a half-inch of rain could fall across South Jersey.

Currently the rain isn’t forecast to reach the Garden State until late Wednesday evening. The rain should end early Thursday afternoon as the cold front passes.

Thanks to the cold front, the heat will be gone on Thursday as well. South Jersey mainland high temperatures may only reach 83 degrees on Thursday, about 4 degrees cooler than normal.

Clear conditions and seasonably cool conditions are expected to remain in place from Thursday through Sunday before the next threat of rain moves in.
