Our area has cloudy skies early on this first day of February and temperatures are milder than this time yesterday ranging from around 30 in the Clifton area down to the mid 20s further inland, winds are light.
Today will be a milder and cloudy day as high pressure moves off the coast and a cold front approaches from the west. Light rain will develop by late this afternoon and continue into this evening, the front will move to our east by midnight and the rain will change to snow before ending by daybreak, possible accumulations would be less than an inch but might affect Friday morning’s commute as the colder air moves in.
Clearing Friday as high pressure moves into the area but it will be quite cold and windy. It will be continued cold with less wind on Saturday, early morning temperatures early Saturday morning will dip down to the low teens.
