Skies are cloudy in the Clifton area and temperatures are around 30 degrees, winds are starting to pick up out of the northwest.
Not even one flurry of snow was reported in our area overnight as another potential snowstorm missed our area, the removal of the shower curtain passed the test for the sixth time since February 20th and this was probably the final test. Flurries were reported as close as Newark and a few inches fell in Southern New Jersey once again.
Although we missed the snow from the rapidly intensifying storm offshore we will get the winds today as we should have gusts above 40 mph, skies will clear by this afternoon but temperatures will be unseasonable cold only reaching the 30s and the wind chills will be in the teens.
Clear with record low temperatures possible tonight.
Thursday will be a little milder during the day and dry with diminishing winds.
Finally we will have a more normal spring pattern starting on Friday and lasting into next week. Showers are likely Friday through at least Sunday morning and again a chance of showers next Tuesday but highs should be in the 50s and lows only dropping to around 40 as winterlike weather ends in our area.
