Good morning everyone!
Skies are mostly clear early on this Thursday morning and once again it is unseasonably warm with temperatures ranging from the upper 70s in Clifton down to the upper 60s further inland. The humidity is high as dew points are in the uncomfortable middle 70s.
A cold front will cross the area later this morning but now it appears there will be no showers with the front. It will be a little less hot today and we should see a decrease in humidity with dew points falling into the 60s by this evening.
Much cooler Friday and Saturday as high pressure over New England gives us an onshore flow. There will be considerable cloudiness both days with a chance of light showers.
Warmer on Sunday with a low chance of showers and thunderstorms.
Quite warm to hot again from Labor Day through much of next week as the Bermuda high will build back into the area. It will be humid also but we should stay mainly dry through this period. So the weather next week will be more like mid-summer weather and not September like.
