Skies are cloudy early on this Tuesday morning and temperatures range from around 60 in the Clifton area to the low 50s further inland, there are some showers in parts of the region and winds are light easterly.
After some possible early showers we should see partial clearing in the afternoon temperatures should be a little cooler than on Monday.
High pressure then will be in control of our weather Wednesday through Friday with plenty of sunshine each day with mild temperatures.
Our weekend weather will depend on the future track of Hurricane Matthew, most of the computer models have the storm just off our coast which would give our area torrential rain mainly falling from late Saturday into Sunday morning along with gusty winds while the European model has the storm well to our east which would minimize the affect in our area.
After the storm passes we should have clearing skies with cool temperatures early next week.
TODAY – Cloudy with a chance of a morning shower then partial clearing this afternoon, high in the upper 60s.
TONIGHT – Partly cloudy, low around 50.
WEDNESDAY – Sunny, high near 70.
THURSDAY – Sunny, high in the mid 70s.
FRIDAY – Sunny, high in the mid 70s.
SATURDAY – Partly sunny with a chance of rain by the afternoon, high in the low 70s.
SUNDAY – Partly sunny with a chance of rain, high in the mid 60s.
MONDAY – Sunny, high in the low 60s.
MARINE FORECAST – Small craft advisories will be in effect from 8 a.m. today through 6 p.m. on Wednesday for northeast winds gusting to 25 knots, seas 5-8 feet.
OUTLOOK – Small craft advisories likely through Friday, conditions may worsen on Saturday due to the approach of Hurricane Matthew.
TROPICS – Dangerous Hurricane Matthew is now approaching the Haitian coast giving that area devastating rains, Matthew is then expected to cross the tip of eastern Cuba then move into the Bahamas. The track of the storm will then take it just off the Florida coast and up along the southeast coast to just off the Outer Banks of North Carolina. After that the models are not in agreement on our close it will come to the northeast coast.
Have a good day!
