At Atlantic City International Airport, record heat will be possible for high and low temperatures on Sunday as well as high and low temperatures on Monday. Airport records date back to 1944.
At Frank S. Farley State Marina in Atlantic City, record heat is possible for low temperatures Sunday and Monday. Historical sightings at the marina date back to 1874.
Anything and everything in the spring outside will be good both days, as long as you’re okay with gusty winds. We will live and die by the wind over the next two days, warming ourselves at the expense of overturned garbage cans and loose garden furniture.
A warm front will rise northward over the region early Sunday morning. A stationary front will then hover over the northern third of the state on Sunday evening. However, this actually turns into a warm front, rising into New England. Winds will be gusty on both days, sustained at 15-20 mph with gusts in the 30s.
The direction of the wind will be decisive for the temperatures. As has been said for a few days, the winds on Sunday will be from the west-southwest, with winds from the southwest on Monday. It will make a difference.

A west-southwesterly wind is offshore enough to hold back most of that cooling sea breeze that wants to build. Accordingly, we are targeting highs in the upper 60s inland and mid 60s along the coast. In terms of rain, a downpour will be possible until about 10 a.m. Even with that, however, most of the day will be dry.
Dinner at the restaurant on Sunday evening will be pleasant, less the wind. Expect 60s and 50s for the first few hours after sunset. We will hit the low of around 50 just before midnight, but then rise again after midnight, due to clouds trapping heat and warming winds.
If we stay above 51 degrees in ACY and 48 degrees in Atlantic City at midnight, we will have the record low temperature of the day.
Monday’s southwesterly wind will mean short weather northwest of Upper Township. Highs will be in the mid-70s, with a chance the CYA will tie or break the 75 degree record.
For Manahawkin, Linwood, or West Cape May, expect highs to peak in the upper 60s.
Take a trip over the bridges, and it’s even cooler. I use the term loosely since we will be in the 60s which is quite comfortable for this time of year.
It will be a dry day, so no worries there. However, the weather will still be quite cloudy.
“I remember the storm like it was yesterday,” Bill Shillingford said of Ash Wednesday Street…
Going into the Monday evening, you will just need a light jacket. We will be in the 60s and 50s there. However, the rain will develop between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. with a cold front that will put an end to the spring fever.
Expect rain for most hours of the night, ending between 2 and 5 a.m. from west to east. The winds will shift to the north, and we will be in the mid 40s on Tuesday morning.
With the arrival of cooler air, we won’t get up much on Tuesday, despite the strong March sun rising. High temperatures will be more seasonal, in the low to mid-50s.
