Skies are clear early on this Tuesday morning and temperatures range from around 20 in Clifton down to 9 degrees at Walpack, winds are light or calm.
Today we will have partly sunny skies with temperatures a little milder than the last couple of days as high pressure builds in from the southwest, winds will be light.
Dry weather will continue on Wednesday and although temperatures will be milder a brisk wind will make it feel colder. A cold front will come through dry late in the day.
Thursday will be dry but colder as high pressure builds in from the northwest. A weak disturbance will likely give us some light snow Thursday night into Friday morning that should change to rain before ending. Accumulations of 1-3 inches are possible.
A much stronger system will affect our area over the weekend, at this time precipitation should start off as snow late Saturday and possible mix or change to rain and then as Arctic air moves into the area on Sunday will cause the precipitation to change back to snow before ending at night. It will become much colder Sunday afternoon into Monday and there is some indications that a flash freeze may affect Monday morning’s commute. Of course this forecast may change depending on the track and strength of this significant winter storm.
