High pressure will still be there, but hardly. The center of the high pressure will be in Newfoundland. That will give us just enough dry air in the upper levels of the atmosphere to have a dry day, save for drizzle. However, when the high pressure goes further away, expect a few showers. The highs for Millville and the inland spots will be around 80 degrees, with Wildwood Crest and the coast in the upper 1970s.


Areas of fog and drizzle form on the night of Wednesday. Give yourself extra time while driving. Regarding measurable rain – drizzle is technically not measurable – I don’t see anything, so you’ll have to water the plants anyway. Evening temperatures will be in the 70s. Here, too, we will slowly cool down with the cloud cover and the onshore current. The lows are around 70, which is close to the record for the warmest lows for this time of year.

As for Thursday, we’ll wait and see when the cold front and a series of thunderstorms hit through. As the cold front moves east, the higher-level low pressure system will fall back into the Great Lakes. Therefore, the cold front will move fairly slowly, so a few hours of rain are likely. Unfortunately I need another day to find the exact time. I will say it won’t be a washout and the highs will be in the 70s.

When the showers and storms come, I doubt we’ll see flood rains in addition to the typical jamming of localized roads. About 0.40 to 0.70 inches of rain is likely to be higher in the strongest storms. Storms in the form of harmful winds and hail are possible.
