TUESDAY OCTOBER 10, 2017 5:56 A.M.
Skies have become mostly clear early on this Tuesday morning and temperatures range from the upper 60s in the Clifton area down to around 60 further inland, winds are light. Note that the last two days the temperature did not go below 70, this is the first time since I started my records 44 years ago that the low temperature stayed that warm in October. Also the 75 degree dew point yesterday was the highest October reading since my records began.
Today will be less humid as dew points have dropped to the 60s, but with plenty of sunshine temperatures should rise above the 80 degree mark.
A weak disturbance will cause skies to become cloudy on Wednesday with a chance of showers in the afternoon and evening.
Fair weather Thursday and Friday with more normal October temperatures as high pressure to our north gives the area an onshore flow.
Back to warm weather for the weekend with mainly dry conditions although there is a low chance of showers Sunday afternoon and evening.
TODAY – OCT 10 – Mostly sunny, high in the low 80s.
TONIGHT – Partly cloudy, low in the upper 50s.
WEDNESDAY – OCT 11 – Mostly cloudy with a chance of an afternoon and evening shower, high in the low 70s.
THURSDAY – OCT 12 – Mostly cloudy and breezy, high in the mid 60s.
FRIDAY – OCT 13 – Mostly cloudy, high in the upper 60s.
SATURDAY – OCT 14 – Partly sunny, high in the mid 70s.
SUNDAY – OCT 15 – Partly sunny, chance of an afternoon or evening shower, high near 80.
MONDAY – OCT 16 – Partly sunny with a chance of showers, high in the low 70s.
MARINE FORECAST: TODAY – Northwest wind to 7 knots, seas 2 feet.
OUTLOOK – Small craft conditions likely for high seas Wednesday night through Saturday.
On this day in 1979 we had a trace of snow, afternoon temperatures were only in the 30s.
Have a nice day!
I remember that day back in Oct 79 …
I had been in Sweden for three months and we had been joking with the Swedes before we left that they would be getting snow real soon .. And a few days later back in the USA we get snow before they did !
It was pretty snowy on the top of Skyline Drive in Ringwood!

Curt I also remember that day since I have an old video of the snow falling outside our apartment in Clifton, seemed strange to see the snow falling on the leaves that were still green. A couple of weeks later temperatures were in the mid 80s for a day.
