Good morning everyone!
Skies are partly cloudy early this morning and temperatures range from the mid 60s in Clifton to the upper 50s further inland. The humidity is high and there is some patch fog in parts of the inland areas.
High pressure will be moving off the coast as the remains of Tropical Depression Florence moves slowly toward our area. Today we will see an increase in clouds along with higher humidity. Showers are possible tonight with most rain falling after midnight into Tuesday. The rain may be heavy at times on Tuesday, rainfall amounts are expected to be between 1 and 1 1/2 inches.
High pressure will build into the area Wednesday and Thursday with plenty of sunshine both days with lower humidity, temperatures will be slightly above normal on Wednesday and be slightly below normal on Thursday.
Warmer on Friday ahead of a cold front that will pass through the area at night possibly accompanied by a shower.
At this point next weekend looks to be dry with near seasonable temperatures as the front moves slowly to our south and high pressure builds in from the north.
