SATURDAY AUGUST 26, 2017 5:42 A.M.
Skies are mostly clear early on this Saturday morning and again it is cool with temperatures ranging from the upper 50s in the Clifton area down to the upper 40s well inland, winds are light.
High pressure will be in control of our weather this weekend giving the area mostly sunny days and mostly clear and cool nights, humidity will continue to be comfortable.
The high pressure will move off the New England coast on Monday with an onshore flow keeping temperatures cool.
We should stay dry Tuesday through the end of the week, the low pressure system we mentioned yesterday now appears will stay well offshore not to affect our area. It will be still cool on Tuesday but slightly warmer and more humid Wednesday and Thursday. A cold front will come through dry Thursday night followed by fair and cooler weather for Friday.
Looking ahead to the Labor Day weekend it now looks like it will still be dry with seasonably warm temperatures.
