Skies are cloudy over the region this Monday morning and temperatures are still on the mild side ranging from the mid 30s in the Clifton area to some upper 20s further inland, winds are northeast 5-10 mph.
A strong storm offshore will move northeast but a band of snow extending westward is now just off the Northern New Jersey coast, this band is likely to move into the area this morning and continue this afternoon, snow amounts should total around 2-3 inches with less to our west and more to our east. Temperatures should slowly fall into the low 30s this afternoon. This light snow should end tonight.
Another low pressure area is expected to form off the coast with light snow in our area on Tuesday and we may pick up another inch or so of the white stuff.

An Arctic front will cross the area on Friday, followed by frigid weather over the weekend. We should stay dry but the latest European model is indicating some snow on Saturday.
