Good morning everyone!
Skies are mostly cloudy early this morning and once again it is muggy and warm with temperatures ranging from the mid 70s in the Clifton area down to the upper 60s further inland, winds are mainly calm and the humidity is high with most dew points in the oppressive low 70s. Here in Clifton we had a thunderstorm around 1:30 this morning that dumped a quick .74 inches of rain.
A cold front will cross the area today followed by a gradual decrease in humidity, it will still be quite warm with temperatures reaching close to 90 degrees but the dew points will fall into the 60s after being in the 70s much of the last several days.
Another nice day on Friday with warm temperatures and moderate humidity levels.
