Fog should burn off this morning but it will be a mostly cloudy day, temperatures and humidity will be similar to yesterday.  There is a low chance of an isolated shower but most areas will remain dry.

Partly sunny and slightly cooler but still humid on Monday.

Hurricane Jose is still expected to move up the coast about 200 miles east of the Jersey coast on Tuesday, at the present time it only appears that we will have some showers with the system along with high surf but if the center of Jose moves closer than expected we then may have heavier rain and wind.
