    Another mostly overcast, humid day is on tap, but the weather conditions don’t seem to disrupt the surfers at the Manasquan Inlet.

    Some isolated showers or thunderstorms are possible this afternoon, with the threat ending this evening as the disturbance moves off into the ocean. Highs will top out in the middle to upper 70s along the coast, low 80s inland. The wind is currently calm but will develop out of the southwest at 5 to 10 mph. Fog is once again possible tonight.

    For the first time this month, a period of hot, hazy, and humid weather is expected for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and possibly Friday with temperatures in inland areas reaching nearly 90 degrees. High pressure to the south will pump in warm and humid air. It will be cooler at the beaches, with temperatures reaching the low to middle 80s.

    Mostly sunny Tuesday and Wednesday, and isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible Thursday afternoon and again later in the day on Friday. Sun and clouds Thursday and Friday.

    Preliminary, the weekend looks cooler and nice and dry.

    BOAT/BEACH: Weather conditions will be similar to yesterday. The surf and ocean swells are running about two to four feet, the ocean temperature is in the low to middle 70s, and there is a moderate risk of rip currents, implying that wind or wave conditions support stronger or more frequent rip currents, according to NOAA. Always swim near a lifeguard.
