Good morning everyone!
Skies are mostly clear early this morning and temperatures are a couple of degrees milder than this time yesterday with readings ranging from the low 60s in the Clifton area down to the low 50s in some spots further inland, winds are mainly calm.
High pressure will be moving offshore and a southwest flow of warmer air, there will be plenty of sunshine again today and humidity will still be on the lower side.
Hot on Tuesday with increasing humidity but it won’t be as uncomfortable as last week’s heat wave as dew points will only rise to the mid to upper 60s instead of the mid 70s. A weak cold front will cross the area at night giving us a chance of a shower.
Dry weather with seasonably warm temperatures Wednesday through Friday with comfortable humidity.
Looking ahead to next weekend it appears now that the weather will remain dry with continued seasonably warm temperatures and a slight increase in humidity.
