Skies are partly cloudy early on this Sunday morning and temperatures have dipped to below freezing in Clifton for the first time Since January 16th, this was the longest streak of above freezing temperatures in January since my records began in 1973. The temperature in Clifton is 30 degrees with readings in the mid 20s further inland, still slightly above normal.
Low pressure over the Canadian maritimes and high pressure over the western states will continue to dominate the weather today, winds will be less than yesterday and with move sunshine temperatures should be a little higher.
A weak low pressure system will likely give southern New Jersey a couple of inches of snow on Monday but only a slight chance of flurries in our area.
A slightly stronger low pressure system will give us a better chance of light snow or rain on Tuesday with some areas getting an inch or two of the white stuff.
Generally dry with cold temperatures Wednesday through next weekend, temperatures will be slightly below normal but no bitter cold air is anticipated.
