A picture perfect trifecta of consecutive sunny and dry days may not be in the cards for the South Jersey Labor Day weekend. However – as the song says – two out of three, ain’t bad. Temperatures are going to soar to near 90.

However – as the song says – “two out of three ain’t bad.”

Here’s an early look at the end of the summer Labor Day holiday weekend:

High pressure will create a southwesterly windflow to allow increasing humid and hot weather to climb up the East Coast during the middle of the weekend./NWS High pressure will create a southwesterly windflow to allow increasing humid and hot weather to climb up the East Coast during the middle of the weekend./NWS High pressure double take

A high-pressure system is expected to drift across the area during the next several days and set up shop out in the Atlantic Ocean on Monday. As it does, it likely will bring up a southwesterly airflow during the later part of the Labor Day weekend.

As a result the first part of the weekend could start off seasonably cool, but Sunday, Aug. 31 and Monday, Sept. 1 could see a return of South Jersey mainland temperatures that soar into the upper 80s.

Sunny and dry conditions are predicted through at least Saturday and maybe into Sunday, when a chance for rain begins.

Temperatures could reach the 90-degree mark in the far interior portions of the South Jersey mainland on Monday. Depending on how quickly the air flow turns around, Sunday could be almost as hot. The European weather model indicates that highs in the mid-90s are possible over the urban areas along the I-95 corridor.
Temperatures should be a few degrees cooler near the Garden State Parkway and even cooler in the barrier island shore towns.

A low pressure system will crawl along a stalled front on Monday, bringing the threat of rain to the end of the Labor Day weekend in South Jersey./NWS A low pressure system will crawl along a stalled front on Monday, bringing the threat of rain to the end of the Labor Day weekend in South Jersey./NWS However, South Jersey’s holiday fun may come to an end during the overnight hours on Sunday. Rain is possible on Monday, Labor Day, as a cold front begins to move across the area.

Here is the forecast in a nutshell:

Thursday: Sunny, with a high near 86. North wind around 11 mph.
