South Jersey could expect more of the same, according to the September weather forecast from the National Centers for Environmental Prediction Climate Forecast System.

The CFS keeps the heat on for the rest of first week of September, back-to-school portion. While temperatures moderate during the middle portion of September, the heat remains for South Jersey and the rest of the coastal portions of the Middle Atlantic States.

Temperature could remain above normal for the rest of the month.

While it remains cold over the western portions of the United States, the Middle Atlantic, South East and New England states could remain a few degrees C. warmer than normal in the middle of September 2014/Weatherbell Analytics, www.weatherbell.com While it remains cold over the western portions of the United States, the Middle Atlantic, South East and New England states could remain a few degrees C. warmer than normal in the middle of September 2014/Weatherbell Analytics, www.weatherbell.com South Jersey September forecast for early September

Thanks to a slow-moving high pressure system that will crank up hot southwesterly winds, South Jersey could average about 5-6 degrees warmer than normal thorough Saturday, Sept. 6 or Sunday, Sept. 7, the CFS says.

After that, the rest of the first 10 day of September should average about 2-3 degrees warmer than normal, the CFS says.

Middle September South Jersey forecast

Remember, September is the month when South Jersey mainland high temperatures tend to slip on down through the 70s.

So this may be the year when a few days reach 90 degrees early on. Through the month, 80-degree days may sneak in a return performance before retiring for the winter.

Though the middle third of the month could average about 1-2 degrees warmer than normal, the 70s will begin to dominate the weather forecast. However, there could be one or few more chances to reach the upper-80s or sneak in a 90-degree day.

End of September forecast

Temperatures will continue to moderatte along the East Coast toward the final 10 days of September 2014. However, daytime highs will still be above normal./Weatherbell Analytics, www.weatherbell.com Temperatures will continue to moderatte along the East Coast toward the final 10 days of September 2014. However, daytime highs will still be above normal./Weatherbell Analytics, www.weatherbell.com The final 10 days of September 2014 should average about 2 degrees warmer than normal, according to the CFS. While 90-degree temperatures will be fading into history, with 80-degree readings in close pursuit. Temperature forecasts in the 60s will have a harder time gaining a foothold in the daily weather forecasts this year.

September rain forecast

The CFC brings good news for those who want to make good use of September’s warmer-than-normal weather forecast. September rainfall could be lower than normal.

According to the CFS, the only about 2 inches of rain could fall during the remainder of the month.

Interestingly enough, the CFS forecasts areas of 7-12 inches of rainfall across portions of Texas, Louisiana, Florida and Georgia. The CFS could be hinting at the chance of a land-falling hurricane or tropical storm during the month.
