Heat and humidity today and Wednesday; Heavy rain possible Thursday into the 4th; Watching Arthur?!


Skies are mostly clear at daybreak this morning in the Clifton area, temperatures are in the upper 60s and the humidity is high.

After a quiet weather pattern most of June things are more interesting as we start off July.  Today will be hot and humid with a chance of an afternoon and evening thunderstorm, it will be hot with temperatures reaching the 90 degree mark along with high humidity.

Heat and humidity will continue on Wednesday with possible severe thunderstorms mainly again in the afternoon and evening, these storms may be accompanied by strong gusty winds and heavy rain.

On Thursday and slow moving cold front will be approaching from the west, humidity will remain high with possible heavy rain, temperatures will be slightly lower as we should have more cloudiness.

Meanwhile a tropical depression has formed off the coast of Florida and is expected to become a weak hurricane by Thursday passing over the Outer Banks of North Carolina late Thursday night and move off the New Jersey coast Friday.  Most of the winds from this storm should remain offshore but there is a chance of flooding rains from late in the day on Thursday into Friday morning.  This forecast depends on the track of what will probably become Arthur.

Arthur along with the frontal system will be well offshore by Friday night giving us another very pleasant weather weekend.

Heat and humidity is expected to return early next week.
