Good morning everyone!
It is a warm and humid start this morning as temperatures range from the upper 70s in Clifton down to the upper 60s further inland, dew points are in the low 70s, winds are mainly calm. Skies are partly cloudy.
A heat advisory has been issued for today and tomorrow as a Bermuda high pressure ridge extends to our area which will produce the high heat and with dew points in the 70s will cause heat indexes to rise to near 105 degrees. There will be plenty of hazy sunshine both days.
A cold front will cross the area around noon on Thursday, with more cloud cover it will not be as hot and there will be a chance of showers and thunderstorms. The humidity should drop by evening.
Much cooler weather Friday and Saturday as high pressure builds off the New England coast and an onshore flow develops. There will be a chance of light rain or drizzle both days along with considerable cloudiness.
Somewhat warmer with dry conditions are expected for Sunday and Labor Day.
