Good morning everyone!
Skies are mostly clear but there is some fog in some of the inland valleys, temperatures range from the low 70s in the Clifton area down to the low 60s further inland, winds are mainly calm and the humidity is high.
Today will start off sunny but we should see an increase in high clouds as a front approaches from the west. Showers and thunderstorms should develop this afternoon and some storms may become strong to severe into this evening with heavy rain, strong gusty winds and possibly some hail. High temperatures today will be similar to yesterday with readings near 90. The humidity will remain high with dew points near 70 degrees.
There is still a chance of a lingering shower on Saturday as the cold front will slowly move through the area, temperatures will be warm but the humidity will slowly drop by the afternoon.
Sunday and Monday look to be very nice summer days with seasonably warm temperature and lower humidity as high pressure builds over the area.
The nice weather will be short lived as the high offshore strengthens and a trough of low pressure will be to our west which will cause a southerly flow of tropical air once again with showers and thunderstorms possible from Tuesday afternoon through Thursday. Some of the storms may be accompanied by heavy rain.
