Skies are mostly cloudy to cloudy early this morning and temperatures range from the mid 30s in the Clifton area to around 30 further inland, winds are gusty out of the north to 25 mph.
Today we will have clearing and it will be quite windy with wind gusts to 32 mph, temperatures will be cool.
After a mostly clear and chilly night we will then see increasing cloudiness on Monday with a chance of rain mixed with snow at night, no accumulation is expected except for the far inland areas where there may be an inch or two of snow and sleet.
On Tuesday the nor’easter will be moving off the coast, temperatures will be mild so no snow is expected during the day but heavy rain will occur all day along with strong winds, there may be minor to moderate coastal flooding. Two to three inches of rainfall is expected.
The precipitation may mix with or change to snow Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, question remains of who will get snow accumulations and to what extent, at this time it appears that only extreme higher elevations of northwest New Jersey and the Poconos will have the best chance of a heavy wet snow.
The storm although weakening will still be affecting our weather with rain and snow showers from Wednesday afternoon into Thursday.
