Skies are partly cloudy early on this Monday morning and temperatures range from the upper 30s in Clifton down to around 30 further inland. However the main issue is the winds as westerly winds have been gusting to above 50 mph at Teterboro and Newark airports.
It will continue to be extremely windy today as two low pressure areas will combine and form an intense storm over the Canadian maritime region. Skies will be mostly sunny and temperatures will be near normal. Wind gusts to 55 mph possible.
Diminishing winds on Tuesday as high pressure builds closer to our area, temperatures will be colder than today.
A weak disturbance will give us a chance of light snow Wednesday night into early Thursday morning.
Another stronger low is expected to give us precipitation Friday into Saturday but at this time most of it will fall as rain possible beginning as a wintry mix.
Well below normal temperatures can be expected Sunday into at least the beginning of next week.
