Dry and cool today! Coastal storms likely to give us snow late Tuesday into Wednesday!


Good morning everyone!   Skies are mostly clear early this morning and temperatures range from around 30 in the Clifton area to the upper teens further inland, winds are mainly calm.

High pressure building down from the Great Lakes will give us a mostly sunny day, temperatures will continue to be cool with most readings in the mid 40s.  Average high for this time of March is in the low 50s.

A complex storm system will affect our area from late tomorrow into Wednesday.  There are two low pressure areas, one which would give us some light snow with little or no accumulation Tuesday night but the second coastal storm is expected to be stronger.  Questions are how close to the coast that system comes to our area, the models have been flip flopping with the expected outcome with the GFS having the storm well offshore with little impacts here while the latest European model having the storm close to the coast which would cause heavy snow and strong winds into the area.  So stay tuned.

Dry weather Thursday through Saturday with continued below normal temperatures.

Still another system may give us some rain or snow on Sunday.
