Frigid today but with less wind by the afternoon; Some snow on Tuesday; Another Arctic blast for Thursday and Friday!


Temperatures in Clifton has fallen to -1 degree which is the coldest temperature here since Jan 28, 2005 and the coldest February temperature since Feb 5, 1996, it is also a record low temperature for Feb. 16th.  Skies are clear and the wind is still gusting to 25 mph with wind chills down to -25 degrees.

Today will be a mostly sunny day with slowly diminishing winds as a strong low pressure over the Canadian Maritimes moves further northeast and high pressure builds from the midwest.  High temperatures will struggle to reach the 20 degree mark.

A low pressure system will move off the Delmarva coast on Tuesday, at this time it appears that the system will only give us light snow amounts of around 2 inches mainly falling from 3 a.m. till 9 a. m., more accumulation to our south and east.

Another Arctic front will cross the area on Wednesday with a low chance of snow showers with the front.

Arctic air will cover the area once again Wednesday night through Saturday morning, temperatures will again approach the zero degree mark overnight on Thursday and Friday with highs only in the teens, however winds will be less than what we experienced on Sunday.

Slightly less cold over the weekend but we may have some rain or snow or a mixture on Sunday.
