The area has clear skies early this morning and temperatures range from the low 20s in the Clifton area to the teens further inland, winds are light.
Today will be a rather nice winter day with plenty of sunshine, light winds and high temperatures around the 40 degree mark.
Skies will become cloudy tonight with snow arriving shortly after midnight, the snow will continue Saturday morning and then mix with sleet and rain, total accumulations should be around 3-5 inches with the precipitation ending in the evening.
Sunshine will return on Sunday with near normal temperatures, with highs in the upper 30s.
Another storm will be moving up the coast on Monday, the computer models with this system are not in agreement yet with most guidance showing only a minor event while the American model indicates a more significant event. The temperatures will be colder so any precipitation will fall as snow. The timing of the event is pretty similar to Saturday’s storm with snow beginning before daybreak and ending by evening.
Much colder air will follow the storm for Tuesday and Wednesday with a slight moderation in temperatures on Thursday, dry conditions will prevail.
