Dry and cold today; Light snow Thursday night into Friday morning; Another significant winter storm Sunday night into Monday!


Skies are clear at 6am this Wednesday morning and temperatures have fallen to the low teens in the Clifton area to some single digits in some areas of Northwest New Jersey, winds are a little brisk from the northwest making it feel even colder.

Today we will have plenty of sunshine along with breezy conditions, high temperatures will be in the upper 20s.

Most of Thursday will be dry with less wind and high temperatures a couple of degrees higher than today.

A weak low pressure area will move across the area Thursday night into Friday morning that could give us about an inch of snow.  Friday will start out a little milder during the day but temperatures will plummet Friday night along with strong winds.

It will be frigid during Saturday with slowly diminishing winds.

Now to the next storm that will likely affect the area Sunday night into Monday and of course the computer models are again not in agreement with the American model (GFS) indicating snow changing to rain while the European model shows a colder solution with all snow that would be significant.  Right now I am leaning toward the European model and that would mean that this area could have snowfall of six inches or more.

Clearing and frigid on Tuesday.
