Skies are clear early this Tuesday morning and temperatures are quite uniform across the area ranging from the low teens in Clifton to around 10 in the colder suburbs, winds gusting to 25 mph is bringing wind chills to around zero.
Another very cold and windy day today with high temperatures only reaching the upper 20s and with winds possibly gusting to 40 mph will again make it a frigid day despite plenty of sunshine.
Not as cold or windy Wednesday and Thursday with dry conditions continuing.
A significant winter storm will likely affect the area Friday night into early Sunday, the storm will develop across the Tennessee Valley and then rapidly intensifying as it moves along the east coast, snow from this system will begin Friday night and continue to Sunday morning. Too early to predict actual snow amounts as the energy that will cause the storm is still over the Pacific Ocean where there is limited data, this energy will move to the Pacific coast tomorrow and the computer models will have a better handling of the system by tomorrow morning. At this time however it looks as if a major storm is likely with a potential of a foot or more of snow along with blizzard conditions and coastal flooding.
After the storm passes it will be seasonably cold later Sunday into early next week.
