SATURDAY MARCH 4, 2017 5:55 A.M.
Skies are clear early on this Saturday morning and temperatures are quite cold with readings ranging from the upper teens in the Clifton area to around 10 further inland.
Today will be a very cold day and winds will again increase with gusts approaching 40 mph and even with bright sunshine temperatures will struggle to reach the 30 degree mark but with the winds it will feel much colder. A very strong Arctic high pressure will be building into the area from the Great Lakes.
Overnight lows tonight will be the lowest in nearly two months as temperatures will fall to around 10 in the Clifton area to near zero further inland, winds however will be lighter.
After a very cold start tomorrow temperatures will moderate in the afternoon and with less wind it will feel more comfortable as the high pressure slowly moves off the coast.
A return flow will bring milder air into the region starting on Monday with mild conditions along with some showers mainly falling Tuesday afternoon through early morning on Wednesday.
Cooler and dry conditions are expected for the end of next week.
