Good morning everyone!
Skies are mostly fair early on this Wednesday morning and temperatures are starting off very high with readings ranging from near 80 in Clifton to some upper 60s further inland, the humidity is very high with dew points in the sultry mid 70s, winds are mainly calm.
Another very hot and humid day again today as the Bermuda high pressure continues to dominate our weather with a west-southwest flow of air. Temperatures once again will rise to the mid to upper 90s and with dew points in the mid 70s will send the heat index to near 105 degrees. Skies will be mostly sunny.
A cold front is expected to cross the area tomorrow morning with a chance of showers and thunderstorms, with more clouds it will be less hot and after the frontal passage it will become a little less humid.
An onshore flow of cooler air will be with us Friday into Saturday with a chance of light rain or drizzle along with considerable cloudiness.
Becoming warmer and more humid again Sunday and on Labor Day, there will be a low chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms both days.
It appears that most of next week will be quite warm and humid for the beginning of school but it should not be as hot as the last few days.
