Good morning!

Skies have become cloudy early on this Sunday morning and tempertures range from the mid 50s in Clifton down to the upper 40s further inland, winds are light easterly.

CLIFTON’S ALMANAC FOR MAY 17TH:

AVERAGE HIGH: 72 AVERAGE LOW: 52

RECORD HIGH: 93 – 2017 RECORD LOW: 35 – 1983

YESTERDAY’S HIGH: 80 LOW: 61 PRECIPITATION: .01″

High pressure off the New England coast will give us an onshore flow of cooler air today, skies will be partly sunny.

Big changes in the forecast as now high pressure is expected to be strong enough to keep precipitation from reaching the area as an upper level low will remain well to our southwest as newly formed Tropical Storm Arthur moves off the Carolina coast and then moves east well out to sea. Unsettled weather is then expected with rain chances from late Wednesday night through Saturday. Temperatures will be below normal with an onshore flow Monday through Thursday but rise to near normal Friday and Saturday.
