Under mostly clear skies temperatures at daybreak this morning are in the low 30s. During the day today we will have some morning sunshine giving way to cloudy skies this afternoon, rain will move in but mainly not until after 9PM, this precipitation will start out as snow and freezing rain well inland up in the higher elevations of northwest New Jersey.
Rain will continue on Wednesday morning and then taper off to showers by the afternoon, despite the clouds temperatures will rise to around 50.
Showers will persist into Thursday, Friday will be dry, temperatures during this period will be slightly above normal.
Dry and cooler weather for the weekend into early next week.
It appears now that the temperatures the first half of March will average below normal and I would not be surprised to see one more snowstorm during this period.
