TUESDAY JANUARY 9, 2018 5:52 A.M.
Our area has partly cloudy skies early on this Tuesday morning and with light winds there is a wide range of temperatures ranging from around 30 in the Clifton area down to the mid teens in some inland areas. There may be some black ice on untreated surfaces so be careful if you head outside early this morning.
Finally we will have our first above freezing day since Christmas which will end the streak of below freezing temperatures at 14 days, this is the longest of below freezing temperatures since the 19 days recorded in December 1989 and the third longest since I started my records in 1973, the second longest was 15 days recorded in February 1979. Today will also have light winds and plenty of sunshine which will make it feel very comfortable after being in the deep freeze.
A cold front will come through dry late tonight and tomorrow will be a dry day with slightly cooler temperatures.
Quite mild Thursday through Saturday with rain expected Thursday night into at least Saturday morning, one to three inches of rain is possible. The rain may change to snow showers before ending Saturday night.
Quite cold but not frigid Sunday through the beginning of next week but we should be dry.
