Warmer Days Ahead

After an unseasonably cool and unsettled stretch of weather, warmer temperatures are on the way. High pressure will anchor itself offshore this week pumping warmer and more humid air our way. However, it will be quite windy to start the week as the weekend departing storm continues to spin off of the Canadian Maritimes. On Monday, Northwest winds 20-25mph will gust as high as 35mph during the day. Temperatures will climb into the upper 60s with plenty of sunshine...

Saturday Soaker, Better Mother’s Day

A lousy start to the weekend as a coastal storm will bring heavy rain and wind to our area. Saturday in Ocean City is also the annual Martin Z. Mollusk Day where we get to see if the famous hermit crab will predict if summer will arrive early. If he sees his shadow it will be an early summer. Unfortunately, will all the clouds and rain, he will have a hard time seeing a shadow. Rain will be heavy at times through the morning and early afternoon with a rumble of thunder possible. Winds will be quite busy out of the east 20-25mph. Temperatures will remain in the 50s...

Coastal Storm Threatens Weekend Plans

Our stretch of dry, pleasant weather has come to an end. A Coastal Storm is expected to put a damper for the first half of Mother's Day weekend. For anyone making outdoor plans this weekend, Saturday is wetter, Sunday is better! Now through Saturday a good deal of clouds and a steady flow of east winds will keep temperatures in the 50s. Expect some rain Thursday and much more rain on Saturday...

Slightly Cooler Sunday, Brief Shower Possible

The weather could be better but it looks like we should have a dry or at least a mainly dry Spring Block Party this year. A large low pressure system will take its time moving out of the Northeastern U.S. this weekend. Hold onto those crafts in the tents! As the low slowly spins through New York state on Saturday, winds will be quite busy out of the south gusting to 20-25mph...

Friday Soaker, But Looking Mainly Dry Saturday And Sunday

After a stretch of nice weather, things are going downhill as we finish out the week. A storm system approaching Friday will washout any outdoor plans. The good news is the heaviest rain will be over before the weekend starts, the bad news is the weekend and into next week will remain cool and unsettled. Sunshine will give way to clouds on Thursday ahead of the next storm system. A steady onshore flow will keep temperatures in the upper 50s. Any rain will hold off until Thursday night after midnight...

Summer-Like Start To The Weekend

A tale of two seasons this weekend. Summer-like to start the weekend then back to a cool onshore flow to finish the weekend. While showers are in the forecast, we will be mainly dry this weekend. Saturday will be the warmest day and more humid as winds will shift southwesterly allow temperatures to climb well into the 80s inland and near 80 at the beaches. If you are going to the beach, you still want to remain on the sand. Ocean temperatures are still quite cool in the mid 50s...

A Mild Finish To The Week

It has been a dismal, dreary week but that has come to an end. Brighter and milder temperatures will return as we finish out the week. After morning fog on Thursday, some sun will return and temperatures will be on the rise. Unfortunately, a southerly wind will keep temperatures on the island cooler than the mainland. Highs will climb into the 70s inland with 60s along the coast...

Tuesday Soaker With Coastal Flooding

Another gloomy day for your Tuesday with a lot more rain and coastal flooding expected. A slow moving storm system off the Carolinas will continue to move slowly up the coast. Rain will become heavy at times during the late morning into the afternoon. A rumble of thunder is possible as well. The heaviest rain should fall between 11AM-3PM...

Wet, Dreary, And Cool Weather To Start The Week

A miserable start to the week as a slow moving storm system off the Carolinas meanders up the coast. Get ready for a good deal of clouds, occasional soaking rain, chilly breezy off the ocean and tidal flooding. Unfortunately this storm is expected to linger through Wednesday morning. While some light rain or drizzle Monday morning, the steadiest rain should hold off until the afternoon. Temperatures will remain in the 50s...

A Damp and Occasionally Wet Weekend

A mainly cloudy and cool weekend is on tap for South Jersey. Occasional rain for your Saturday as a frontal system remains stalled to our south. However, the weekend will not be a washout...
