Skies have become mostly clear early this Tuesday morning and temperatures are amazingly mild with readings ranging from the upper 50s here in Clifton to around 50 further inland. A cold front caused some heavy showers around 1:30 a.m. and before the front passed the temperature reached a balmy 66 degrees which set another Clifton record making it six record highs in a row.
Today we will have gusty westerly winds along with mostly sunny skies, temperatures will stay unseasonably mild rising into the low 60s, winds will gust to near 30 mph at times.
On Wednesday we will have mostly sunny skies and light winds, highs will “only” reach the low to mid 50s which is still about 10-15 degrees above normal.
A storm system moving in from the west will cause rain with continued mild temperatures on Thursday.
Colder air will move in along with drying conditions on Friday that will last over the weekend, highs over the weekend will be closer to normal that will feel quite chilly after this amazing stretch of warm December weather. There is an outside chance of seeing our first snow flurry of the season on Saturday.
The cold air doesn’t last long and we will again have well above normal temperatures next week as it is becoming more likely that December 2015 will be the warmest December on record.
