Skies are cloudy and it is quite foggy early on this Thursday morning. There are some light showers falling mainly just south of our area. Temperatures range from the low to middle 60s and the humidity continues to be very high.
Yesterday we only received .07 inches of rain in Clifton while parts of Burlington and Ocean counties had 4-6 inches of rainfall.
The front that has stayed just to our south will move north of our area as a warm front, scattered showers will accompany the front this morning. After the front passes it will become warmer and even more humid as dew points reach the oppressive low 70s. A cold front approaching from the west will pass through late tonight preceded by some showers and thunderstorms some that may be heavy.
After a chance of a morning shower Friday will become much less humid as high pressure builds in from the west. We should see more sunshine but it will be breezy with some wind gusts to 30 mph.
The first weekend of summer looks quite pleasant with plenty of sunshine both days. Temperatures will be a little below normal on Saturday but rise to above normal readings on Sunday. The humidity will be low.
Warm early next week with a chance of showers Monday into Tuesday evening although the showers and clouds should not be as widespread as what we experienced this week.
