Extremely cold and windy Sunday! Storm to give area mainly rain Tuesday night into Wednesday!

Brrrr it is cold and windy outside as Arctic air arrived last night giving us even a brief dusting of snow. Temperatures this morning are ranging from near 20 degrees in the Clifton area to the teens further inland, wind gusting above 30MPH are dropping wind chills to the single digits…
Some sunshine today will not help much as highs struggle to get above the 30 degree mark and with winds gusting to 40mph will make it feel unusually cold for this time of year. A wind advisory is effect along with a red flag warning due to the possibilities of brush fires.
By early morning on Monday we may have record low temperatures in much of the area.
During the day on Monday temperatures will be well below normal but with less wind it won’t feel as harsh as today.
The well advertised storm for the middle of the week now appears just to be a soaking rain event with the only possibility of snow or ice falling will be very well inland of our area in the beginning and maybe the end of the storm.. The timing of the precipitation is from late Tuesday night into Wednesday afternoon.
1-2 inches of well needed rain is likely. Still some questions on the track of the storm, the European model has it moving just to our west and if that is the case temperatures on Wednesday may rise into the 50s… The American model has the storm just offshore. Both models outcome would give us a well needed soaking of rain as this fall has been so dry.
The storm will move away Wednesday night and Thanksgiving day will be chilly and breezy but not as cold as today.
Seasonably cold and dry Friday into next weekend.
