Both the temperatures and local rivers have been rising higher. Localized river flooding will continue through the end of the week while temperatures climb into the 60s for Thursday and Friday.
The Maurice River in Vineland and the Great Egg Harbor River in Folsom are still in minor flood stage Wednesday morning. A flood warning is out through Wednesday afternoon. However, I believe that this will stay in until at least Friday morning. Oftentimes, it takes a few days to recede. In minor flood stage:
- Roadways covered in water
- Lawns and parkland inundated with water
- No water in structures, homes or business (save extreme circumstances)
From what I saw at Lake Lenape, water levels were not an issue.
In terms of the weather forecast, warmer weather is on the way! Wednesday will go up to 53 degrees, about ten degrees above average. A mostly sunny morning will give way to more clouds during the afternoon. Rain showers then arrive Wednesday night, between 1 a.m. to 7 a.m. It will be light and scattered, not amounting to much more than 0.10 inches of rain.
Spring will then be in the air for Thursday and Friday. Highs will be in the 60s, with a record high possible on Thursday.
