At daybreak this morning skies are cloudy and temperatures range from the low 20s in the Clifton area to the teens and even some single digits in Sussex County, there are some snow showers falling in parts of the area mainly to our south.
Snow showers are likely mainly this morning and we may see a coating to an inch of accumulation, skies will clear by this afternoon. Much colder tonight with lows dropping down to near 10 degrees.
Some more scattered snow showers are possible on Thursday and it will be windy and cold.
Friday will be very cold with early morning lows in the single digits and highs only in the 20s despite plenty of sunshine.
Saturday will be dry but not as cold.
I think the removal of the winter shower curtain will be getting a real test Sunday into Monday as a winter storm is likely. Precipitation is likely to begin on Sunday as a mixture of rain and snow but as colder air moves in from the north the precipitation should change to all snow Sunday night into Monday with significant accumulations quite possible.
The forecast: Today – Snow showers mainly this morning, accumulations around an inch, becoming mostly sunny by this afternoon, high near 30.
Tonight – Partly cloudy and very cold, low around 12.
Thursday – Partly sunny with a chance of snow showers, high around 30.
Friday – Sunny, high in the mid 20s.
Saturday – Mostly cloudy, high in the mid 30s.
Sunday – Chance of rain or snow, high in the mid 30s, precipitation changing to all snow at night.
Monday – Snow likely, significant accumulations possible, high in the low 30s.
Tuesday – Partly sunny, high in the mid 30s.
Marine forecast: Small craft advisory in effect through this evening for west winds gusting to 30 knots, seas 2-3 feet.
Outlook – Gale watch for Thursday then conditions improve to below advisory levels Friday through the weekend.
Have a nice hump day!
