Good Wednesday morning! Skies now are mostly cloudy early this morning and temperatures are seasonably cold with readings ranging from the upper 20s in the Clifton area down to the mid teens further inland, winds are light.
Precipitation should move into our area around 8 a.m. starting off as snow but quickly changing to sleet and freezing rain, as warmer air moves into the area the frozen precipitation will change to plain rain and continue into this evening. Snow and ice accumulations should be around an inch before the changeover but higher amounts up to six inches are possible across inland sections of northwest New Jersey. The rain this afternoon and evening may be heavy at times, total liquid precipitation will be around an inch.
Much colder air will move into the area late tonight and any standing water may freeze and possibly affect tomorrow morning’s commute.
Dry and seasonably cold weather is expected tomorrow and Friday, winds will be gusty tomorrow but be less on Friday.
Another low pressure system will affect our area from late Saturday afternoon through Sunday but this time there isn’t much cold air around so the precipitation should fall as plain rain.
