Skies are mostly cloudy early on this Saturday morning and there are some light rain showers moving through the area. Temperatures are quite mild with readings ranging from the low 60s in Clifton down to the mid 50s further inland, winds are light westerly.
CLIFTON’S ALMANAC FOR MAY 16TH:
AVERAGE HIGH: 71 AVERAGE LOW: 52
RECORD HIGH: 86 – 2007 RECORD LOW: 36 – 2016
YESTERDAY’S HIGH: 87 LOW: 58 PRECIPITATION: .05″
A cold front that caused only some light showers overnight is moving offshore and we should have mostly sunny skies and high temperatures well up into the 70’s with lower humidity than yesterday.
As the high pressure moves off the New England coast an onshore flow will develop on Sunday with cooler temperatures and partly sunny skies.
A rainy pattern is expected much of next week as an upper level low is expected to be just to our west and a coastal low, that may become tropical storm Arthur, moves slowly up the coast. The interaction of these lows will determine how much rain will fall but there is a chance of several inches of rain Monday night into Tuesday.
The upper level low will meander in our area most of the rest of next week giving us a chance of rain showers Wednesday through Friday. Temperatures will be below normal Wednesday and Thursday and near normal on Friday.
At this point the holiday weekend looks to be seasonably warm with mainly dry conditions.
