FRIDAY DECEMBER 8, 2017 5:48 A.M.
Our area has partly cloudy skies early on this Friday morning and temperatures range from the low 30s in the Clifton area down to the low 20s further inland, winds are light.
Today we will have an increase in clouds, temperatures will be a little below normal with highs mainly in the low 40s, high pressure will be moving through the area.
Yesterday at this time it looked that the precipitation would remain offshore for tomorrow but all the computer models now show the low pressure to be closer to the coast and this will lead to our first snow accumulation of the season. Snow should start around or shortly after daybreak and continue through the day, expect 3-5 inches of snow with more along the coast and less inland.
Sunday and Monday will be dry with seasonably cold temperatures.
Another low pressure system will be moving in for Tuesday and depending on the track could give us more snow on Tuesday, followed by much colder weather for Wednesday through the end of next week.
