Good morning everyone!
Skies are cloudy early on this first day of September and temperatures range from the upper 60s in Clifton down to the low 60s further inland, winds are light offshore and the humidity is moderate with dew points in the low 60s.
Today should still be a cloudy day as a front to our south weakens and high pressure to our north continues an onshore flow, temperatures will be slightly below normal. No rain is expected today except for a possible shower inland this morning.
Warmer and becoming more humid on Sunday but we should remain dry as the front to our south dissipates.
Hot and quite humid Labor Day through most of next week as the Bermuda high again dominates our weather as temperatures reach the 90s along with dew points in the 70s. There is a chance of an afternoon thunderstorm on Labor Day and again on Thursday as a cold front approaches the area.
Cooler weather is expected on Friday.
