    Another winner today, but unsettled for the remainder of the workweek

     Island Beach State Park

    If you missed enjoying the great outdoors yesterday and have the opportunity to do so today, you’re in for a treat.

    There’s a very autumnal feeling in the air. As high pressure continues to build in, we will enjoy mostly sunny skies with temperatures in the upper 70s to low 80s, slightly cooler in the mountains. Another “10” beach day. A north to northeast wind 10-15 mph, subsiding later. This photo is from moments ago in Island Beach State Park, courtesy of The Friends of Island Beach State Park Osprey Cam.

    But today’s going to be the best day of the workweek. Sun and clouds Tuesday, with more cloud cover as the day proceeds. Showers possible, especially during the evening. Highs in the upper 70s to low 80s along the coast, slightly warmer inland.

    Between Wednesday and Friday, unsettled weather will continue. The National Weather Service advises of potentially locally heavy rainfall from Wednesday afternoon through Friday.

    “The heavy rain may lead to flooding along small streams and creeks and in areas of poor drainage. At this time, the risk for any flooding rains is highest Wednesday afternoon and night, and then again Friday,” the service advises in a Hazardous Weather Outlook.

    BOAT/BEACH: Not much to say but just “perfection.” Sunny, upper 70s, surf temperature in the low 70s, small breakers, and minimal ocean swells. There is a low risk of rip currents, but always swim near a lifeguard.
