Rain is falling over the area early on this Tuesday morning and temperatures range from the low 40s in Clifton down to the mid 30s further inland, winds are light northerly.
Low pressure moving up the coast will reach Long Island by this afternoon, rain from this system will end by later this morning followed by drier and cooler air by tonight, total rainfall amounts will be around one inch.
Chilly and windy weather on Wednesday as a cold high pressure builds into the area.
Another storm system will affect our area from Thursday afternoon through Friday. A mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain will develop in the afternoon and then change to all rain by Friday, it is too early to guess on possible frozen accumulations which will depend on the track and intensity of the storm but it looks like inland may pick up a couple inches before changing to rain.
High pressure will build into the area for the weekend and it will be dry but chilly.
