Skies are clear early on this Wednesday morning and temperatures range from the mid 20s in Clifton down to the lower teens further inland, winds are mainly calm.
Today will be a partly sunny day with slightly milder temperatures as most highs will be around 40.
A cold front will come through dry tonight followed by colder weather for Thursday.
A weak disturbance is expected to give us light snow late Thursday night into Friday morning, accumulations should be between 1-2 inches, the snow may change to rain before ending Friday morning.
A more significant winter storm for the weekend as a low pressure system develops and moves up the coast. Snow should begin by late Saturday afternoon and as temperatures rise to above freezing the snow will then change to rain. Arctic air behind this system will likely change the rain back to snow before ending Sunday night. I am quite concerned about a flash freeze as temperatures fall to the single digits by Monday morning.
The coldest air of the season is likely Monday and Tuesday along with dry conditions.
