MONDAY JANUARY 8, 2018 6:00 A.M.
We have mostly cloudy, to cloudy skies across the area early on this Monday morning and temperatures across the area are in the teens. These readings are 15 degrees warmer than this time yesterday in Clifton and up to 30 degrees warmer in some spots further inland. Walpack was -14 this time yesterday is now 17 above this morning.
Today will be a milder day but it still will be cold enough for some light snow mainly falling later this afternoon, accumulations should be less than an inch. In many areas today will be the 14th straight day of below freezing temperatures.
Tomorrow will likely be the first day of above freezing temperatures across the entire area as highs should rise into the low 40s and with plenty of sunshine and light winds it will feel much more comfortable than the frigid weather we have experienced the last two weeks.
A little cooler but dry on Wednesday.
A slow moving frontal system will likely give us some significant rain Thursday afternoon into the first half of Saturday, rainfall amounts may be as high as 2 1/2 inches and with quite mild temperatures should errode much of the snowpack that is in our area now.
Colder but not frigid weather Sunday through the beginning of next week.
