Good morning everyone!
Skies are cloudy early on this Wednesday morning and once again it is warm and muggy with temperatures ranging from around 70 in Clifton to near 60 in parts of far northwest New Jersey, the humidity is high and there is fog in most of the area.
Yesterday I received 2.82 inches of rain, more rain fell just to our east with flooding in parts of Bergen, Essex and Hudson counties where up to 4 inches of rain fell.
A warm front has moved to our north overnight and today will be a mostly cloudy day with warm temperatures and high humidity as dew points rise to the oppressive low 70s. Showers and thunderstorms are likely with some of the storms may be accompanied by strong gusty winds and heavy rain. A cold front will cross the area at night.
Thursday will be much cooler and drier but a weak disturbance may cause some light rain at night into early Friday morning.
Very nice early fall weather for the weekend with dry conditions and seasonably mild temperatures.
Pleasant weather is expected to continue into early next week and temperatures should be above normal for the first few days of October.
