Mostly sunny and cooler today! Snow and rain on Tuesday followed by a cold Arctic blast!


Good morning!

Skies are partly cloudy early on this Monday morning and temperatures range from the middle 20s in Clifton down to the middle teens further inland, winds are from the north around 10 mph.

A cold front crossed the area early this morning and we will have colder air today with high temperatures 10-15 degrees lower than yesterday despite mostly sunny skies.

A low pressure system will move into our area on Tuesday, light snow in the morning will change to rain in the afternoon and then back to snow Tuesday night before ending early Wednesday morning. Snowfall amounts of 1-2 inches are possible in the Clifton area, but up to 6 inches across northwestern New Jersey and the Poconos.

Cold Arctic air will follow this system on Wednesday and there is a chance of snow showers.

The coldest day will be on Thursday with daytime highs only in the teens and overnight lows near zero, pretty similar to last Monday’s frigid weather but with a little less wind.

Dry weather will persist Friday through the weekend with a slow moderating trend in temperatures.
