Thaw to continue into the weekend; Winter pattern returns next week!


With clear skies temperatures range from the low 30s in the Clifton area to the 20s further inland.  Again be on the outlook for some black ice especially when walking early this morning.

Today will be a rather pleasant day with temperatures reaching the upper 40s, we will have mostly sunny skies in the morning but clouds will increase this afternoon.

Tonight rain or drizzle will develop with locally dense fog mainly after midnight, temperatures will remain above freezing.

Friday a warm front followed quickly by a cold front will cause showers, temperatures will reach the low 50s, some of the showers may be heavy with even a chance of a thunderstorm.  Some local flooding is possible due to the rain and the melting snowpack.

Rather nice weekend is shaping up with highs in the 50s on Saturday and the upper 40s on Sunday with mostly fair skies both days.

A return to winter next week as the polar vortex dips down into the central and eastern part of the country.  Below normal temperatures will prevail through next weekend.

With this pattern there will also be chances of snow with a chance of light snow Tuesday into Wednesday.  A bigger storm is being shown for next weekend on the European model and right now it is indicating more than two feet of snow, however the American model does not show any storm.  I do believe once Joan takes down the winter shower curtain today it will cause the storm to move safely out to sea… As you might know when a butterfly flaps it wings it could change the weather pattern, same may be true with the removal of the curtain. Time will tell..
