Skies are mostly cloudy early on the day after last night’s exciting Super Bowl, temperatures are on the mild side ranging from the upper 30s in the Clifton area to the low 30s further inland, winds are light.
Today a weak area of high pressure will cause clearing after morning clouds, temperatures will be seasonably mild. Clouds will increase tonight ahead of the next storm system.
The storm will move into the Great Lakes and a warm front will be crossing the area during the day, rain will develop in the morning with freezing rain well inland across the Poconos and extreme northwest New Jersey which should change to rain after the morning commute. The heaviest rain should occur Tuesday afternoon and evening along with rising temperatures.
Possible record temperatures on Wednesday ahead of a cold front that will pass through in the evening possibly accompanied by some showers.
After posting in my blog yesterday that there was no signs of a significant snow for a couple of weeks it now looks like a storm will develop offshore and there will be enough cold air to produce rain changing to snow, accumulations may be significant with 4-6 inches possible.
After the storm it will be colder the rest of Thursday into Friday followed by milder temperatures over the weekend along with a chance of showers.
