TUESDAY JANUARY 2, 2018 6:18 A.M.
Skies are mostly clear early on this Tuesday morning and temperatures are a bit higher than this time yesterday ranging from around 10 in the Clifton area down to the single digits further inland, winds are light westerly.
Today we will have plenty of sunshine, high temperatures will be a couple of degrees higher than yesterday reaching the upper 20s, it will feel less harsh especially this afternoon when winds diminish.
Even a little milder tomorrow as high temperatures reach to near freezing.
A storm will form offshore and rapidly develop as it moves up the coast, at this time it appears that the storm will likely give us some snow with 1-2 inches likely but there is a potential for a lot more if the storm moves closer to the coast.
Following the storm it will become extremely cold with temperatures even lower than this past week, overnight lows near zero and highs barely reaching the low teens. Along with the cold the winds will be strong, dropping wind chill values well below zero.
It appears that there will be a moderation in temperatures next week with a chance of rain or snow on Monday.
