TUESDAY DECEMBER 5, 2017 6:03 A.M.
Our area has mainly cloudy skies early on this Tuesday morning and it is quite mild with temperatures ranging from around 50 in the Clifton area down to the low 40s further inland, winds are light.
A strong cold front approaching from the west will give our area a southerly flow of mild and moist air, there will be some scattered showers today with heavier rain showers tonight into early Wednesday, overnight lows will be in the 50s.
The front clears the area by daybreak on Wednesday followed by a westerly flow of colder air, temperatures in the 50s during the morning will drop to the 40s by sunset.
Cold air will be with us Thursday through the weekend, there is a chance of some light snow late Friday and again late Saturday as a couple of weak low pressure disturbance move offshore.
It appears that the colder than normal weather will then persist for at least the next two weeks. I think there is a better chance this year of a “White Christmas”.
