Skies are partly to mostly cloudy early on this Wednesday morning and temperatures range from the mid 30s in Clifton to the upper 20s further inland, winds are brisk out of the northwest.
High pressure building in from the west will give us a northwest flow of chilly air despite having mostly sunny skies. Tonight should be the coldest night of the season so far with lows dropping down to the low 20s.
Low pressure developing off the southeast coast will be moving toward our area on Thursday, snow and sleet will develop by the afternoon and continue into the evening before changing to all rain late at night. The rain will end Friday morning. At this time we are expecting our first winter snow accumulation of the season with two inches expected in Clifton and more to our north and west.
The weekend looks to be dry and cool but a weak disturbance may give us some rain mixed with snow Sunday night.
Dry weather early next week but temperatures will continue to be unseasonably cold.
