Last day of the heatwave today! Well needed rain on Thursday!


Another warm early morning on this Wednesday as temperatures range from the low 70s in Clifton to some low 60s further inland, winds are light and it is a little muggy with dew points in the 60s.  Skies are mostly clear.

Yesterday many record highs were recorded, here in Clifton the mercury rose to 97 degrees which was the hottest temperature since July 19, 2013 and the warmest September temperatures since September 11, 1983.

Today the temperature will be a few degrees lower but still reach the low 90s and with dew points rising into the low 70s will make it still feel uncomfortable.  We should see an increase in clouds as the day progresses as a cold front approaches from the west.

Showers and thunderstorms will move into the area late tonight as the front pushes through as last through most of the day on Thursday, rain may be heavy at times. With the clouds and precipitation temperatures may not climb out of the 70s.

Friday we should see clearing with lower humidity.

Saturday should be a nice September day but there is a good chance of showers on Sunday that may extend into Monday morning.

Dry most of the rest of next week with temperatures  rising to well above normal by late in the week.
