Good morning everyone! Our area has mostly cloudy skies early this morning and temperatures are chilly once again ranging from the upper 20s in the Clifton area down to the upper teens well inland, winds are from the northeast.
Today will be a dry day with quite chilly weather as spring arrives at 12:15 p.m.
Low pressure is expected to develop off the coast and move northeast, a mixture of light rain, sleet and snow will develop late tonight and change to all snow by tomorrow morning. Snow will be heavy at times with even a chance of thundersnow, I expect 8-12 inches of snow with higher amounts possible in some of the heavier bands of snow. The snow will taper off at night.
Mainly dry weather with below normal temperatures Thursday through Saturday.
Another low pressure may affect our area on Sunday but the latest model runs have the storm well south and east of our area but that may change.
Dry and chilly weather early next week.
