Skies are cloudy on this Friday morning and temperatures once again are well above normal ranging from near 40 in the Clifton area to around 30 in the colder inland valleys, winds are light.
Today we will have considerable cloudiness with light rain which will fall from around 3 to 7 p.m., rainfall amounts will be less than 1/4 of an inch, most high temperatures will be in the 40s. Down in Washington DC there will be some rain falling as our new president is inaugurated at noon today but as of now no lightning bolts are expected.
Saturday will be a very pleasant day with quite mild temperatures along with partly sunny skies.
A significant coastal storm will be moving into the area by Sunday afternoon with rain developing becoming heavy at times on Monday before tapering off to showers on Tuesday. At this time the precipitation should fall as all rain except for areas well north and west of our area. Strong winds especially over the coastal areas on Monday with widespread minor coastal flooding expected. Rainfall amounts should average 1-3 inches with higher amounts possible which would help our drought situation.
