Skies are cloudy early on this Thursday morning and temperatures range from the low 60s in Clifton down to the low 50s further inland, winds are light easterly. As of 5:30 a.m. no rain was falling in Clifton but steady rain was falling to our west across our far western suburbs and also to our east across Long Island.
Rain should develop shortly this morning and be steady till around noon when the rain will taper off to drizzle of occasional showers, temperatures will be cool with highs only in the 60s. Rainfall amounts of around 1/2 inch are likely.
High pressure will then build in for Friday providing our area with plenty of sunshine, temperatures will be a little below normal and it will be a little breezy.
Much warmer air will move in for the weekend as high pressure moves offshore and a southwest wind develops, the humidity will increase. Saturday will be dry but there will be a chance of showers Sunday afternoon and evening as a front approaches our area.
The front will give our area unsettled weather Monday and Tuesday with a good chance of showers both days. It will remain warm and rather humid.
Dry weather should return for Wednesday.
