Skies are cloudy early on this Sunday morning and a mixture of freezing rain and sleet has developed as temperatures have fallen just below freezing in the Clifton area to the upper 20s further inland, winds are brisk out of the east.
Today we will have a mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow that may accumulate to about an inch before changing to rain this afternoon. Inland temperatures should stay below freezing most of the day so there will be a higher accumulations of ice and snow in those areas. A storm system in the Midwest will rapidly intensify and be off the New England coast tonight.
Monday will be dry but with very strong winds of up to 50 mph, a high wind watch is in effect from late tonight into Monday afternoon.
Most of next week will be dry with near seasonable temperatures, there is a slight possibility of storm developing on Wednesday but most models have the storm develop too far to our north and east to cause any significant issues but since the event is a few days away it still bears watching.
Mild weather can be expected by next weekend with highs reaching the 50s by next Sunday.
