January thaw ends today; Winter storm watch for Tuesday!


Skies this morning at daybreak are mostly cloudy with temperatures ranging from the low 30s in the Clifton area to the upper 20s further inland.

Today will be the last mild day for quite some time with temperatures reaching the mid 40s, skies will be partly sunny.

An Arctic cold front will come through tonight dropping with temperatures falling to the teens by Tuesday morning, there may be some snow flurries with the front.

What a difference a day makes!  All the computer models now strengthen a low pressure just offshore and give us accumulating snow beginning late Tuesday morning and continuing Tuesday night before tapering off early Wednesday morning.  Accumulations will range from 3-7 inches with lesser amounts across inland areas of Northwest New Jersey and the Poconos.  It will also be very cold with highs only in the low 20s so expect some blowing and drifting snow.

Skies will clear on Wednesday but still be bitterly cold.

The very cold weather will extend into Friday, with a slight chance of some snow showers on Thursday.

Somewhat milder on the weekend but another cold front will approach on Sunday that may give us a chance of snow showers.

Well it is going to be Denver vs Seattle in the Super “Bowl”.  At the this time yesterday the computer model showed quite mild temperatures, now it is indicating temperatures in the 30s with a chance of rain or snow..  Of course this forecast will probably change many times in the next few days..
