Showers and thunderstorms are still on their way, but sooner than expected, saving one more possible beach day.

Here is the latest:

Showers and thunderstorms that were to set up and cross South Jersey during the afternoon hours on Monday, Sept. 1 will now arrive early, according to NAM future simulated radar.

Showers and thunderstorms should enter the Philadelphia area late Sunday afternoon and cross into South Jersey around 8 p.m., according to NAM future simulated radar.

A second batch of storms will cross South Jersey around 2 a.m. but clear the JerseyShore in time to save Labor Day at the shore.

There is a price to pay, however.

The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for most of eastern portion of the Middle Atlantic States. The outlook suggests that some of the storms could be severe. Brief heavy rain could case street flooding in the areas of poor drainage.

Officially, there is a 30 percent chance of rain on Sunday afternoon, a 50 percent chance of rain at night and a 40 percent chance of rain on Monday, Labor Day, according to the National Weather Service. About one-quarter of an inch of rain could fall.

Temperatures will remain mid-summer hot through Wednesday. Daytime highs on the South Jersey mainland will continue to reach the upper-80s to 90 degrees. Overnight low temperatures will not drop any further than the low- to mid-60s.

When will the heat end?

Though the normal early September South Jersey mainland high temperature is about 81 degrees, the daytime highs for the next week could average 4-5 degrees warmer - or more - according to some weather models. The heat could stick around until as late as next weekend, Sept. 6-7.
