Dry and chilly during the day today; light snow tonight; good chance of snow on Monday!


At 6am this morning the temperature in Clifton is in the low teens, further inland some below zero readings with Walpack, NJ reporting a frigid temperature of -7 degrees, skies are mostly clear and the winds are light.

Today we will have increasing cloudiness, high temperatures will be similar to yesterday.

Light snow will develop late tonight and end Friday morning as a weak clipper system moves through our area. Expect 1-2 inches of accumulation.

The storm will be followed by clearing skies on Friday with rapidly falling temperatures, readings in the low 30s during the late morning will fall to around 20 by sunset and with winds gusting to 35 mph will bring wind chill values below zero.

Saturday will be very cold but we will have plenty of sunshine, early morning temperatures will be in the single digits.

Partly sunny and not as cold on Super Bowl Sunday but a stronger low pressure system is expected to give us a good chance of snow late at night.

The computer models are still not agreeing with how much snow we may get on Monday with the American model showing a possible 6-10 inch snowfall while the European model only indicating an inch or two as it has the storm moving too far south to give us significant snow, so again stay tuned.

Dry and frigid on Tuesday.
