Skies are partly cloudy early on this Friday morning and temperatures range from the low 30s here in Clifton to the mid 20s further inland, winds are gusty out of the west, some flurries have been reported inland mainly over extreme northwest New Jersey and the Poconos.
The storm that gave us the heavy rain and strong winds is now over the Canadian Maritime area and along with high pressure over the Southern Plain states will combine to give us a brisk northwest flow of chilly air, most highs today will be mainly in the upper 30s despite having plenty of sunshine.
After a cold night tonight temperatures on Saturday will moderate somewhat, winds will be much lighter than today, skies will be mostly sunny.
Milder on dry on Sunday and this mild weather should persist into the middle of next week.
Watching for another storm to affect our area around Wednesday afternoon into Thursday morning, as with the last storm the track will take it to our west so it looks to be an all rain event, at this time not sure of the strength of this system but it has the potential to give us heavy rain, mild temperatures and strong winds.
