Skies are cloudy early on this Tuesday morning and temperatures are rather uniform over the area mainly in the low to mid 20s, winds are light. We have had a dusting of snow overnight with accumulations in Clifton less than 1/2 inch. Some spots in the Hudson Valley received around 2 inches for their first accumulating snow of the season there.
A couple of disturbances will be moving through the area today into Wednesday morning causing snow flurries during the day today but the disturbance tonight should be stronger and produce around 3-5 inches of snow which will end tomorrow morning.

Colder but mainly dry and windy Thursday and Friday.
An Arctic cold front will be moving through the area Friday night which may give us some snow showers Friday night into Saturday morning.
