High pressure is doing it's best to stuff Tuesday's eventual rain on Monday, putting another winner in South Jersey.

Clouds are as nearby as Washington D.C., however extremely dry air is overhead. Humidity values as low as 15 to 20 percent dominate much of the Mainland. It's a chapstick day, not an umbrella one. High temperatures range from near 70 in western Cumberland county, to the low 50s in Harvey Cedars and Long Beach Island. It's way of life for the island, but you make up for it with the warm fall nights. 

Monday evening will be clear, but clouds build to partly cloudy overnight. Then, on Tuesday, expect a partly sunny morning to give way to a cloudy afternoon. Rain still looks to develop during the afternoon rush. Steady rain ends early Wednesday morning, with scattered showers during the day. Highs will be in the low 60s.

Flooding is unlikely, though flood waters will be high during the Wednesday morning high tide. There will be some water on bayside roads.

This is my first newspaper but not my first forecast for NJ. I graduated with a B.S. in Meteorology from Rutgers. Two TV internships gave me a taste for the newsroom. Then, after nearly 4 years in private NJ weather, I'm forecasting South Jersey for you.
