WEDNESDAY  AUGUST 2, 2017  5:48 A.M.

Skies are partly cloudy early on this Wednesday morning and temperatures are warmer than the last few morning with readings ranging from the low 70s in the Clifton area to the low 60s further inland, winds are light and the humidity is rather high with dew points in the upper 60s.

Today will be quite warm and humid but with more cloudiness temperatures will be slightly lower than on Tuesday with highs mostly in the upper 80s.   There is a good chance of afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms.

Still warm and humid through Saturday as high pressure moves off the coast and a front slowly approaches from the west, there will be a chance of mainly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms each day.

High pressure will give us a mostly sunny day on Sunday with cooler temperatures and lower humidity.

Another front may give us more showers Monday afternoon into early Tuesday morning.
