With clear skies and light winds the temperature in Clifton has fallen to 7 degrees which is a record low for March 4th. Many areas even in Southern New Jersey are in the single digits. The coldest temperature in the state is -6 degrees at Walpack in Sussex County.
We escaped yesterday with only a few flurries in Northern New Jersey but up to 7 inches fell in the southern part of the state.
After the bitterly cold morning temperatures this afternoon will rise to near 30 degrees and with less wind it won’t feel as harsh as yesterday. Clouds will increase but no precipitation is expected.
We will have mostly cloudy conditions tonight through Thursday and temperatures will moderate somewhat but still remain well below normal.
Temperatures will rise to near normal Friday through the weekend with highs in the 40s. The only chance of precipitation may be with some snow showers on Saturday night.
