Yesterday we had .50″ of rain but areas in Ocean county had upwards of 6″ of rain early yesterday morning and northwest New Jersey had up to 4″ of rain last night.
Right now we have dew points in the mid 70s again, a cold front is approaching from the west and will give us some more heavy showers and thundershowers mostly ending by 3PM.
After the cold frontal passage it really won’t be cooler but the dew points will drop to the bearable 60s. Quite warm on Thursday with no rain in the forecast, however Friday showers will again be possible. Weekend looks unsettled again with showers possible. Finally cooler and drier air moves in for early next week..
The forecast: Today, showers and thunderstorms likely mostly before 3pm, quite humid, highs in the mid 80s.
Tonight: becoming partly cloudy and less humid, chance of an early evening shower, lows in the mid 60s.
Thursday, mostly sunny, high in the upper 80s.
Friday, partly sunny, chance of afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms, highs in the upper 80s.
Saturday, partly sunny with a chance of showers and thunderstorms, not as warm, high near 80.
Sunday, mostly cloudy with a chance of showers and thunderstorms, high near 80.

Marine forecast: Small craft advisory for rough seas through Thursday, southwest wind to 20 knots, seas up to 7 feet in long period swells.
Outlook, an extended period of small craft advisory level conditions due to high swells from offshore tropical system “Leslie” through early next week..
Also due to “Leslie” high rip currents are likely at the ocean beaches.
Have a nice day despite the weather!
