Make no secret of it, it's raw in South Jersey.

Mother's Day felt more like St. Patrick's Day as a strong east wind and steady rain put temperatures into the 50s. In fact, the 54 degree high temperature at Atlantic City International Airport was reached during the pre-dawn hours on Sunday. Most of the day struggled to reach 50 degrees. That was about 15 degrees below average. (The record for the coldest high temperature is 50, set back in 1998).

Monday has not been much different. A forecasted high temperature of 54 degrees will be expected at A.C. Airport. That is the average temperature for the late March, when Memorial Day is two months away, not two weeks. 

In fact, Monday's temperatures are so raw, that you can travel north, way north, to seek more heat. Here's a list of ten places where temperatures were warmer than South Jersey at 3 p.m. Eastern time. 


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.
