For the second time this month, organizers of a major Atlantic City tourist attraction have received the good weather news they’ve waited days for.

Mother Nature pardoned the Lady Antebellum concert two weekends ago and now she appears ready to bless the 12th annual Atlantic City Airshow with clearing conditions on Wednesday, Aug. 13.

Future simulated weather radar now indicates that the thunderstorms that will soak South Jersey on Tuesday, Aug. 12 will fly off the Jersey Shore just in time for the 12th annual Atlantic City Airshow to begin at 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 13.

 As of 4 p.m. Monday, Aug. 11, the first bits of rain were already falling over portions of central Pennsylvania and moving eastward.

 Sluggish front could cause flash flooding concerns

 A slow moving front will interact with two low pressure systems to bring a risk of heavy rain and flash flooding to the Philadelphia, South Jersey and New York metro areas Tuesday.

 South Jersey’s first rain

 South Jersey will get its first bit of rain during the Tuesday morning rush hour, according to NAM future weather radar.  On and off again showers are expected to continue through the afternoon under mostly cloudy conditions. Heavy rain will return to South Jersey during the evening and overnight hours, according to the NAM.

 Total accumulation could reach up to 2 inches in some areas and the rain could fall fast and hard enough to lead to flash flooding in areas of poor drainage.

 Also, an easterly wind combined with a high-than-normal tides produced by this weekend’s super moon could lead to minor tidal flooding, according to the National Weather Service. Minor tidal flooding is possible along the back bays and along the Jersey Shore.

 Tuesday’s temperatures may only reach the mid-70s.

  NAM future simulated radar indicates that the heavy rain that is moving through South Jersey should clear the coast about 11 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 13 and just before the 12th annual Atlantic Cithy Airshow is scheduled to begin./Weatherbell Analytics, www.weatherbell.com NAM future simulated radar indicates that the heavy rain that is moving through South Jersey should clear the coast about 11 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 13 and just before the 12th annual Atlantic Cithy Airshow is scheduled to begin./Weatherbell Analytics, www.weatherbell.com Rain ends just in time for the airshow to begin

 The last bit of rain should move through South Jersey around 9-11 a.m., Wednesday, Aug. 13 and a hour before the 12th annual Atlantic City Airshow is expected to begin.

 The rain will clear from the southwest, moving from CumberlandCounty first, then Atlantic, Burlington and Ocean counties.

 The sky will gradually clear during the 12th Atlantic City Airshow which runs from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Temperatures will peak in the mid-80s.

 If the Atlantic City Airshow goes off as planned it will mark the second time this month that a major Atlantic City tourist event flirted with weather disaster.

 On Sunday, Aug. 3, organizers nervously waited for rain to stop on the morning of the outdoor, free Lady Antebellum concert held on the beach in Atlantic City. Heavy rain had fallen over the previous two days.

 But the rain ended just a few hours before the opening act was scheduled to take the stage.

 Hopefully, the same will happen with this week’s Atlantic City Airshow.
