Yesterday most of the rain in Clifton was in the morning with only a brief shower in the evening while areas just to our south and east received over 2 inches of rain.
A cold front is moving offshore as high pressure to our west builds into the area. Skies will become mostly sunny, temperatures will be seasonably warm but the dew points that were in the 70s yesterday will fall into the 50s by this afternoon.
Saturday will be a fall like day with seasonably cool temperatures along with low humidity as high pressure continues over the area.
The main change in the forecast is lowering the chances of rain as models show a weakening front moving through the area and we should avoid any heavy rain on Sunday.
Fair weather should return by Monday and it will likely be the coolest air of the season by Tuesday morning.
Dry weather should persist Wednesday into Thursday with a slight warming trend.
