Skies are partly cloudy early this morning and temperatures once again are very mild with readings ranging from around 70 in the Clifton area down to the lower 50s further inland, winds are calm to light southwesterly. We certainly went from winter to summer, April 2nd – 6 1/2 inches of snow, May 2nd – 90 degrees.
High pressure anchored off the coast will give the area another quite warm day today with temperatures once again approaching the 90 degree mark, the humidity will slowly increase and there is a low chance of some showers and thunderstorms this evening especially inland.
Friday will be quite warm again with higher humidity and as a cold front approaches there is a better chance of thunderstorm activity in the late afternoon and evening.
The cold front will move through late Friday night and the weekend will be cooler, also a weak disturbance along the front may cause some showers late Saturday night into Sunday.
Some nice spring weather is expected Monday though the middle of next week with plenty of sunshine along with pleasantly mild temperatures.
