Skies are clear and with calm winds temperatures are approaching record lows in some parts of the area, with readings ranging from the upper 20s in Clifton to some upper teens further inland.

The coastal low will rapidly develop as it moves northeast well east of our coast, however some light rain may brush the area tonight, rainfall amounts will only be about a tenth of an inch.
