FRIDAY AUGUST 25, 2017 5:52 A.M.
Our area has partly cloudy skies early on this Friday morning and it is rather cool with temperatures ranging from around 60 in the Clifton area down to around 50 further inland, winds are light.
High pressure building toward our area from central Canada will provide us with dry conditions today, there should be more cloudiness than yesterday especially in the afternoon, temperatures will be seasonably cool.
Dry weather will continue through the weekend with continued seasonably cool weather with low humidity, skies should be mostly sunny both days.
Most of next week looks to be continued dry, however there will be a possible tropical low that will be moving up the coast around Wednesday. Most models have the system too far to our east to give us any problems, the Canadian computer model has the system coming closer to the coast, so this situation will have to be watched.

MARINE FORECAST: TODAY – Northerly winds to 9 knots, seas 2 feet. Belmar’s ocean temperature is 74 degrees.
OUTLOOK – No advisories expected on Saturday; possible small craft conditions Sunday through Tuesday.
THE TROPICS: Dangerous hurricane Harvey is expected to come onshore along the middle Texas coast tonight as a major hurricane, this system will be very slow to move so there will be extremely heavy rain, damaging winds along with a high storm surge. Harvey may be the first major hurricane to strike the United States since 2005.
Have a nice day!
