We have rain this morning and temperatures have shot up to around 60 degrees along with strong southerly winds gusting to 35 mph.
Rain will taper off to showers this morning and end by 11 am followed by partial clearing this afternoon, temperatures will rise to near 70 degrees but winds will continue to be strong gusting 30-35 mph.
A cold front will cross the area late tonight, temperatures will be cooler on Tuesday but still be above normal, winds will still gust at times to 25 mph.
Now for the winter effect taking shape for Wednesday into early Thanksgiving morning, a coastal low pressure system will be moving along the coast and depending on the track and strength of the storm will determine the snow amounts for our area. The rain and snow line will be very near to the Clifton area and how it appears right now is that precipitation will begin as rain Wednesday morning then change to snow after 2pm and continue into the night ending around 2am Thanksgiving morning. For snow amounts I am thinking about 2-4 inches for the Clifton area, less to our east and south and more inland were 6-12 inches may occur. I have very low confidence on the snow amounts and I am glad I don’t get paid for these forecasts.
Clearing and cool on Thanksgiving Day.
Dry and chilly weather Friday through the weekend but it won’t be as frigid as what we experienced last week.
Looking further ahead it looks like temperatures will be mild next week especially after next Tuesday.
