Mostly sunny and seasonably cold as winter arrives at 11:28 A.M. Rain likely late Friday night into Saturday!

THURSDAY  DECEMBER 21, 2017  5:51 A.M.

Skies are partly cloudy early on this Thursday morning and temperatures range from the upper 20s in the Clifton area down to the low 20s further inland, winds are light.

High pressure building into our area will give us a mostly sunny day today with seasonably cold temperatures, winds will be lighter than yesterday.

A warm front approaching the area on Friday will cause increasing cloudiness with rain likely by evening, possibly starting off as a wintery mix inland.  Rain will continue on Saturday, rainfall amounts around an inch.  A cold front will cross the area at night possibly changing the rain to snow before ending well inland.

Most of Sunday looks to be dry and seasonably cold.  An area of low pressure then is expected to develop off the coast which will possibly give our area a wintery mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain late on Christmas Eve ending early on Christmas morning, at this time amounts should be light.

Much colder Tuesday through the end of next week but mainly dry.
