Yesterday only .07″ of rain fell in Clifton when my forecast expected an inch or more but the remains of Tropical Cyclone Laura went to our south with some parts of southern New Jersey received close to 5 inches of rain. Also the thunderstorms that were expected in the evening with the cold front weakened as it moved through.
Very pleasant late summer weather is expected today and on Monday with mostly sunny skies with comfortable temperatures and humidity as high pressure builds into our area. West winds may be a little brisk in the afternoon.
A slow moving warm front will approach our area that may cause showers Tuesday and Wednesday with a slow increase in humidity.
Thursday will be warm and humid but should stay dry.
Friday a cold front may cause some showers, temperatures and humidity will remain on the high side.
At this point the Labor Day weekend looks to be pleasant with little or no rain.
