We have mostly clear skies on the New Year’s Day morning and early morning temperatures range from around 20 in the Clifton area to the low teens further inland and as low as 4 degrees in Walpack, NJ, winds are light.

Today the winds will pick up and although high temperatures will be a couple of degrees higher than yesterday, wind gusts to 30 mph will make it feel colder, despite mostly sunny conditions.
