Skies are clear early on this Sunday morning and it is chilly with temperatures ranging from the low 20s in Clifton down to 10 degrees in Walpack, winds are mainly light northerly.
Today we will see an increase in cloudiness as high pressure moves offshore and a low pressure system approaches from the southwest. Temperatures will be lower than yesterday with highs mainly in the upper 30s.
Snow should begin by midnight tonight and then change to a mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain by daybreak and be all rain before ending Monday afternoon, accumulations of 1-3 inches are possible.
Tuesday will be a dry day with seasonably cold temperatures.
Another low pressure system will likely give us more precipitation Wednesday into Thursday. Again the precipitation will start off as snow Wednesday afternoon and then change to a wintery mix, then to all rain before ending on Thursday.
Friday should be dry with near slightly above normal temperatures.
Another disturbance will give us a chance of rain next weekend.
