At 6am we have partly cloudy skies in the area, temperatures range from the low 30s in Clifton to the upper 20s further inland, winds are from the west 5-10 mph.
Today will be a rather nice day with plenty of sunshine and high temperatures near the 40 degree mark.
Clouds will increase tonight with light snow beginning after midnight, colder temperatures can be expected with a low around 20.
Mainly just light snow during the day on Monday with an inch or two accumulating by evening.
The fun begins Monday night as a coastal storm rapidly intensifies off our coast and slowly moves up the coast, expect snow very heavy at time Monday night through Tuesday evening and with winds gusting to 40 mph blizzard or near blizzard conditions can be expected. At the present time the American model is indicating around 18 inches of snow for our area while the European model is showing an unbelieveable 36 inches, as of now I think 18-24 inches of windswept snow is likely.
Sunshine returns on Wednesday as we dig out with cold temperatures.
Slightly milder Thursday and Friday but we may have some light snow Thursday night.
