Clearing after morning fog! Possibly a little snow eastern sections Friday morning! Dry and pleasant weekend!


Temperatures are still very mild across the area early this Thursday morning with readings ranging from the mid 50s here in Clifton to the mid 40s further inland, skies are cloudy and there is some drizzle and fog in the area, winds are nearly calm.  I did write last Thursday morning that by this time the snowpack would be all but gone and that seems to be the case over much of the area as mild temperatures along with yesterday’s heavy rain melted the snow.

A cold front will cross the area this morning followed by clearing, high temperatures will be reached this morning and fall slowly this afternoon as cool air moves into the area.

A low pressure disturbance will develop along this front offshore on Friday morning and may give some snow to areas just to the east of us as Long Island and coastal New Jersey could have light accumulations while areas to our west will not see any precipitation.   Skies should clear late in the day.

A tranquil weekend is anticipated with plenty of sunshine and temperatures slightly above normal.

An unsettled pattern early next week as colder air moves into the area and a couple of low pressure areas develop, too soon for details but there is a chance of more significant snow during this period.
