Skies are cloudy early on this Saturday morning and temperatures range from the low 20s in Clifton to the mid teens further inland.
The low pressure that we have been tracking will move well off the coast but will likely give us snow this afternoon which will end this evening, in the Clifton area expect a 1-3 inch accumulation but much more across southern New Jersey and Long Island with only flurries across northwest sections of New Jersey. Temperatures will be quite cold with highs only in the 20s so the snow will be light and fluffy.
Very cold Arctic air will be with us tomorrow and on Monday and highs will again be only in the 20s with overnight lows well down in the teens.
A moderating trend will start on Tuesday but we should likely see some rain late Tuesday night into Wednesday, the rain may begin as a mix of freezing rain and sleet inland.
Mild air will continue at the end of next week with a chance of rain Thursday and Friday.
