NEW YORK — Now that Ida is behind us, the next couple of days will be quiet as high pressure slides into the region. Most of the Labor Day Weekend will be fine, however, a few scattered storms will be possible on Sunday.
Flood warnings persist across many rivers in the tri-state Region. While many of them have already crested, it will take a couple of days before the water recedes below flood levels. The Passaic River is still rising and it will not crest until Saturday morning.
Skies will remain clear Thursday night and a northwesterly breeze may make it feel a bit on the cool side for some. Temperatures will drop to around 60, with surrounding suburbs going down into the 50s. Some of the outlying spots could go down into the 40s.
The week will end on a gorgeous note. Temperatures will only climb into the lower 70s on Friday under mostly sunny skies.
Saturday will feature a lot of sun and calmer winds during the day. That will help bring temperatures up back into the upper 70s.
A weak disturbance will pass through on Sunday bringing the chance for a few showers in the region. Fortunately, anything that falls should be on the light side and should not exacerbate the ongoing flooding situation. Highs will be in the upper 70s.
Labor Day Monday look be a very nice day. Expect mostly sunny skies with highs around 80 degrees
