Rain is falling over the area early on this Sunday morning and temperatures range from the upper 30s in Clifton to the low 30s further inland where there may be some freezing rain. Winds are gusty out of the northeast.
Low pressure to our south will move into our area today and then offshore tonight, rain from this system will continue throughout the day into this evening possibly mixing with sleet before ending. More frozen precipitation is expected over the higher elevations of northwest New Jersey as well as the Poconos and the Hudson Valley where a winter weather advisory is in effect.
Improving weather on Monday ahead of a cold front, we should see some sunshine along with seasonably mild temperatures.
Colder but dry weather can be expected Tuesday and Wednesday.
Another low pressure system is expected to give us precipitation late Thursday through Friday but warmer air moving in will cause this precipitation to fall as rain.
