With clear skies and light winds and a fresh snowpack temperatures have fallen to their lowest levels of the season so far with single digits in the Clifton area and close to zero further inland, in fact parts of central and southern parts of New Jersey where there is more snow cover some temperatures are below zero.
Today will be the last frigid day of this week as temperatures remain well below freezing, however winds will be lighter as a strong high pressure moves slowly offshore.
Tuesday will start off dry but a low pressure system approaching from the west will cause precipitation to develop by evening, this precipitation will be mostly rain as temperatures rise above freezing but may start as a period of snow, sleet and freezing rain especially inland.
Much milder on Wednesday with temperature reaching the 50 degree mark, the rain should end by daybreak.
Quite mild and mainly dry Thursday and Friday.
A cold front will move through by Friday evening bringing cooler weather for next weekend and with low pressure developing to our south may cause some overrunning precipitation that depending on temperatures may give us some icy conditions mainly Saturday night into Sunday morning.
