Skies are clear early on this Tuesday morning and temperatures are ranging from the upper 30s here in Clifton to around 30 in the cooler suburbs, winds are from the northeast 5-10 mph.
A backdoor cold front came through late yesterday and a surge of colder air from the north has moved into the area, today will be sunny but with high temperatures more than 15 degrees cooler than on Monday.
The high pressure will move off the New England coast on Wednesday as a storm system to our west slowly approaches, we will have an increase in clouds but we should stay dry with somewhat milder air.
A slow moving cold front will move into the area on Thursday causing rain occasionally heavy at times along with milder temperatures on brisk southeast winds. At this time rainfall amounts looks to be around 1 – 1 1/2 of an inch.
The front moves offshore on Friday ending the rain and we should see clearing with seasonably mild temperatures.
Cooler on the weekend but we should stay dry although the European model has a low pressure developing in the area that would give us rain but the other models do not have this system affecting our area.
