Mostly sunny today with lighter winds and not as cold! Dry weather with cool temperatures Sunday and Monday! Still watching for potential coastal storm Tuesday into Wednesday!


Good morning everyone!   Skies are mostly clear early this morning and temperatures are chilly with readings ranging from the mid 20s in the Clifton area down to the upper teens further inland, winds are a little gusty out of the west-northwest making it feel colder.

Today we will have plenty of sunshine as a weak high pressure builds into the area, temperatures will be a little milder than yesterday with less wind as the low pressure over Eastern Canada moves slowly away.

Dry weather will persist Sunday and Monday along with continued cool temperatures.

Latest computer models has the potential storm to be more offshore and south of the area to give us any major impacts.  Yesterday the GFS midday run showed up to 20 inches of snow for our area but the overnight run shows only a couple of inches of snow.  This is a complex situation and models are having a hard time analyzing the pockets of energy that will be moving toward our area.  So stay tuned for updates in the next couple of days.
