Yesterday was extremely hot in the area, the temperature in Clifton reached 96 degrees and would of hit the 100 degree mark if some clouds moved through during the hottest part of the day. Most places just to our south hit the century mark, 102 in Newark, 100 in both Trenton and Atlantic City. Severe thunderstorms did not occur here but in Monmouth and Ocean counties evening storms cause damaging winds with frequent lightning. Relief is coming our way after one more day in the 90s today but the humidity will slowly lower.
So today will be mostly sunny with highs in the low 90s, less humid by the afternoon.
Tonight, partly cloudy with lows in the mid to upper 60s.
Monday, sunny and pleasant with highs in the mid 80s.
Tuesday through Friday – Pleasantly warm with partly to mostly sunny days, highs in the mid 80s..
Looking ahead it looks like above normal temperature will prevail starting next weekend but at this point the heat does not look as intense as this last heat wave.
Marine Forecast: North wind becoming West-southwest less than 10 knots, seas 1-2 feet.
Outlook, sub-advisory levels through the week, however seas may increase to 4 feet on Wednesday with an onshore wind.
