NOW & NEXT: Tracking a few isolated showers/storms in southwest New Jersey as we go into the evening. Just enough of a boundary there for these to pop. They rain themselves out and not much more will form in the meantime.  
Storm Watch Team Meteorologist Michele Powers says New Jersey will see heat and humidity build up for Monday before a chance of showers or storms late Tuesday.
Early clouds Monday followed by sunshine. Temps near 90 in spots and it's really humid.
Cold front later Tuesday will bring scattered showers and storms thru second half of day. Should clear enough for Wednesday to see more sun and temps to stay hot. Less humid and cooler rest of week. Think "fall preview" as we kick off September for a few days.
TROPICS: One area of concern is highlighted just east of the Windward/Leeward Islands. Moderate risk of development within next couple of days but HIGH risk now by day 7. Models try to develop something as we start September, so we may be tracking a trop system soon in the Atlantic.
Monday: Early clouds break for sun. Highs 85-90.
Tuesday: Mostly sunny, late day strong to severe storms possible. Highs 85-90.
Wednesday: Mostly sunny warm and dry. Highs 85-90.
Thursday and Friday: Mostly sunny, cooler and less humid. Highs 80-85.
Saturday and Sunday: Mostly sunny and milder. Highs middle-80s.
