Good morning everyone!
Skies are mostly cloudy early this morning and again it is quite warm with readings ranging from around 70 in the Clifton area down the the low 60s further inland. Humidity levels are much higher than the last few mornings as dew points have risen to the 60s. Yesterday in Clifton we had a record high of 93 degrees.
Today will be another very warm day with higher humidity as high pressure off the Mid-Atlantic coast continues a southwest flow. High temperatures may be a couple of degrees lower than yesterday due to more cloud cover. It will become quite breezy this afternoon with gusts to 30 mph possible. Also as a cold front approaches showers and thunderstorms should develop later this afternoon and continue into tonight, some of these storms may become severe especially over inland areas.
The cold front will move to our south and east tomorrow and we will have cooler temperature but should stay dry during the day.
A weak disturbance moving along the front to our south will give us a good chance of showers from late Saturday night into Sunday. Temperatures will only reach the 60s.
High pressure building in will give us some very nice spring weather most of next week with plenty of sunshine each day along with seasonably mild temperatures.
