Rain is falling across the area early on this Sunday morning and temperatures range from the upper 30s in Clifton down to around 30 at high elevations well inland where freezing rain is occurring. Winds are mainly light northeasterly.
Low pressure will move to the Great Lakes area as another low moves up the coast, rain will continue most of this morning before tapering off around noon, temperatures will rise into the 50s.
A high wind warning is in effect for our area from late tonight through Monday as the low pressure intensifies over the Canadian maritime region. Possible gusts up to 60 mph may cause some tree and power lines to come down. It will be a good idea to secure loose objects around your homes. In the past some of the anticipated high wind events didn’t turn out as bad as forecasted and hopefully this will be the case this time.
Most of the rest of this week will be dry and chilly but another disturbance will give us a chance of light rain or snow from late Thursday night into Saturday.
