Skies are mostly cloudy at daybreak this morning and the precipitation has ended, temperatures are in the low 30s in the Clifton area to the 20s further inland.
Overnight we saw our first snow of the season, here in Clifton we only had some accumulation on car tops but inland three inches was reported on Schooleys Mountain in Morris County and four inches at Highland Lakes in Sussex County.
Clearing will take place today but it will be unseasonably cold for this time of year with highs mostly in the 40s.
Below normal temperatures will continue on the weekend with dry conditions.
Another storm system will be moving just to our east on Monday with more precipitation with heavier amounts of rain or snow starting before daybreak on Monday and ending early Tuesday morning. Precipitation will be mainly rain in the Clifton area but several inches of snow is possible well inland, difficult to pinpoint accomulations right now as it depends on the track of the storm where the rain/snow line will set up.
Dry and even colder weather Tuesday through Thursday.

TONIGHT – Mostly clear, low around 30.
SATURDAY – Sunny, high in the mid 40s.
