straighten that up a little bit. here we go a look at the morning and you can see down the jersey shore here, we have a pretty morning, 63% the humidity the winds are east and the pressure has been steady. look at that. so that's strong high pressure over us normally 30.00 is good enough for our fair weather mark. today we get extra credit and high number yesterday 52 right at normal. and the low yesterday morning was 40. so right at our normal overnight low this morning we're little warmer than that and we'll have is a nice sunrise coming up here at 6:46. probably too cloudy as sunset rolls around at 4:30. 5 little drizzle this evening and tonight and windy and warmer tomorrow. rain moves in tomorrow morning around midday and heaviest in the afternoon and then we have some sunny weather for friday and saturday and a big chill coming for sunday. to talk about. hopatcong is 34. hackettestown 35 and 32 right over here toward blarestown. low 30s. 31 poughkeepsie. chilly numbers outside the city to the north and east and 42 to 39 long island and coastal connecticut.
a little east wind here today. that's important to note that means high pressure is sliding eastward and then around that, will come a southerly wind tonight and that's what will pick up you know the spritzes and sprinkles. just have some high clouds being sheered off here by upper level winds and off of the storms here to the west. this is the cold front we're talking about coming our way for tomorrow. and there might be a little drizzle this evening with that warm air coming in off the atlantic down from the south that might create a spritz and sprinkle. but you can see that 2:00 a.m. some sprinkles around. your morning commute might have a sprinkle but it's midday you see sock here now the -- 10:00 here the computer guidance is showing it to the hudson river valley and the city southward spreading out lunchtime across coastal connecticut and long island. it will continue into the evening hours and 5:00 you can see it's still raining. might wind down by 7:00, 8:00 west of the city and after midnight eastward. that gives us a fair amount of rain, maybe rain in some spots. much-needed rain. after school 58 and clouds and breaks of sun. really nice after school kiddos. here comes the front for tomorrow.
with this rain. but the front is out of the way by tomorrow night. and sets up a nice friday. but sunday, it's jolt of cold as a matter of fact. a hard freeze sunday night into monday. 20s in the northern suburbs and jet stream drops south allows this cold air to come in here in time for thanksgiving week. clouds and sun and milder today. we're looking at 58-degrees and it's mostly cloudy. tonight a shower and a little drizzle. but tomorrow in the afternoon and evening shower hours and temperature into the mid 60s. so you see we have some nice weather for friday. a great day sat with normal temperatures but sunday it's going to get cold. a chilly blend of sun and clouds maybe a spritz or sprinkle and maybe a few snow flakes off to our north and to our west. then next week as we head toward thanksgiving, we're looking at highs in the 40s and lows in the 30s. so make sure the furnace is working and you have the warm gear and you're ready to go. start to settle into late fall and early winter.
