Skies are cloudy at daybreak and temperatures are not nearly as cold with readings in the low 30s in the Clifton area to the 20s further inland.
Light snow will develop around noon as an Arctic front crosses our area temperatures will hold steady during the day, little or no accumulation is expected before sunset. Tonight snow will become steady and continue through Monday morning and it will become much colder. Predicting snowfall amounts is tough with this system, at the present time I will say 3-5 inches will fall in the Clifton area, ranging from 2-4″ across extreme Northern New Jersey to 10-14 inches across Southern New Jersey.
Tuesday through Thursday will have mainly dry conditions with temperatures well below normal.
Another system will be moving off the coast Thursday night into Friday that could give us a chance of rain or snow.
Dry weather with milder temperatures likely on Saturday.
