SATURDAY DECEMBER 30, 2017 5:57 A.M.
Skies have become cloudy early on this Saturday morning and temperatures range from the middle teens in the Clifton area down to the single digits inland; winds are light.
A weak disturbance will give us some light snow beginning around 10 a.m and tapering off to snow showers this afternoon, accumulations of dusting to two inches are expected.
Following the storm a strong northwest wind of cold Arctic air will again be with us, daytime highs tomorrow will only be in the teens and probably drop to the single digits by the time the ball drops at Times Square. Very cold New Year’s day and Tuesday with a slight moderation on Wednesday and we should stay dry.
Still watching for a coastal low to affect our area on Thursday, most of the models still have the storm well enough offshore to give us any significant snow but that may change as we get closer to the event.
Frigid weather again Friday into next weekend.
