    Will the clouds clear out? They’ll decrease throughout the day.

    The cold front that moved off the coast overnight has stalled, with high pressure now moving in behind it. Sprinkles are possible in extreme South Jersey during the early afternoon hours, as precipitation is moving through the Delmarva region.

    Today will feature sunshine and clouds, with much less humidity. A South Seaside Park weather station recorded a 93% humidity reading at midnight, which has dropped significantly to a current 71% reading. With a drier light west-northwest wind, the humidity will continue to decrease, so it will feel even more comfortable as the day proceeds. Highs will be in the low 80s along the coast, mid-upper 80 inland. Partly cloudy tonight, with lows around 70 at the coast and low to mid 60s inland.

    Tomorrow’s weather will be similar, with a very slight chance of a thunderstorm in South Jersey late in the day. Highs in the low to mid 80s, lows in the 60s.

    BOAT/BEACH: A relatively calm day on the water. Swells are decreasing and will bottom out around two to three feet, with the same height for breakers. No marine advisories are currently in effect. A light west-northwest wind at 5 to 10 mph will continue all day. The ocean temperature is in the upper 60s to low 70s, and there is a low risk of rip currents, but always swim near a lifeguard.
