Skies are mostly clear early on this Thursday morning and temperatures range from the low 20s in the Clifton area to the mid teens further inland, winds are from the west averaging 5-10 mph.
Today we will see a little more sunshine and temperatures will be a couple degrees higher than on Wednesday but winds will still be gusty as low pressure weakens over the Canadian Maritime region and high pressure builds from the Tennessee valley.
Slightly milder again on Friday along with sunny skies and there will be less wind as the low pressure over the Canadian Maritimes moves further away.
A disturbance moving in from the west will likely cause snow and rain on Saturday, the precipitation should start as snow before daybreak and then change to rain by noon but may change back to snow Saturday evening, at the present time accumulations should be in the 1-2 inch range with 3-4 inches possible over the Hudson Valley.
Dry weather for Sunday and Monday followed by a chance of showers on Tuesday as a weak cold front moves through. Temperatures will moderate but still be below normal for most of next week.
