A little light snow this morning then becoming windy and much colder; Significant snowstorm becoming more likely for Monday!


Some very light snow is falling at 6am this morning in the Clifton area, temperatures are milder than yesterday morning with a 30 degree reading in Clifton ranging to the mid 20s in colder inland spots, winds are light, overnight accumulation is about an inch.

This morning we will have periods of light snow or flurries with little or no additional accumulation.  Skies will clear this afternoon but it will become very windy and much colder, late morning highs in the 30s will fall to 20 degrees by late this afternoon and with the winds it will feel that much colder.

Tonight will be bitterly cold with lows by Saturday morning in the single digits and with winds gusting to 40 mph will help bring wind chill values to -10 or lower, a wind advisory along with a wind chill advisory is in effect for our area.

Saturday will be a sunny day but very cold and windy, winds will die down by late in the afternoon.

Dry most of the day on Sunday with a slight moderation in temperature.

Now to the next storm, computer models have become in better agreement and now most are indicating a significant snowstorm for our area starting late Sunday night and continuing on Monday, my first guess in accumulations are in the 6-10 inch range, of course that will probably change as we get closer to the event.

Dry but frigid on Tuesday.

Watching for the potential of another storm for late Wednesday into Thursday.
