SUNDAY OCTOBER 29, 2017 6:11 A.M.
Skies are cloudy early on this Sunday morning and it is quite mild with temperatures ranging from the low 60s in the Clifton area down to the mid 50s further inland, there are some showers in parts of the area.
October 29th has seen some very strong storms the last few years, in 2011 we had 6 inches of wet snow while most trees still had their leaves on them which caused significant power outages and in 2012 we had Superstorm Sandy. This year we may have to contend with another significant storm that will cause heavy rain and strong winds, power outages are again possible as winds gust to over 40 mph later today and tonight, along with the winds we will have heavy rain, expect an average of 2-4 inches of rainfall with higher amounts possible. The coastal storm with some tropical connections will move to Southern New Jersey this evening and up into New York state on Monday.
Lingering showers on Monday followed by clearing it still will be very windy with gusts again up to 40 mph, temperatures will be cooler.
High pressure will give our area seasonably cool weather Tuesday and Wednesday.
There is a chance of some showers Wednesday night into Thursday as a warm front moves through the area.
Friday will be quite mild once again but another cold front will cross the area Friday night followed by cool and dry weather for Saturday.
