CLIFTON’S ALMANAC FOR JANUARY 8TH:
AVERAGE HIGH: 36 AVERAGE LOW: 22
RECORD HIGH: 64 – 2001 RECORD LOW: 4 – 2015
YESTERDAY’S HIGH: 42 LOW: 33 PRECIPITATION: NONE
Our area did not produce the dusting of snow that was expected last night as the precipitation remained south and east of our area. Today we will have another chance of a dusting of snow as a cold front is expected to cross the area this afternoon accompanied by some snow showers or brief snow squalls and followed by a strong westerly flow of colder air, wind gusts to 40 mph are possible.
High pressure will then build into the area on Thursday giving us a sunny day but cold with lows in the teens and highs only in the 30s, winds will be much lighter.
As the high pressure moves off the coast a southwest flow of milder air will develop for Friday, skies will be mostly cloudy.
Unseasonably mild weather for the weekend with highs possibly reaching the 60s both days but a slow moving cold front will cause showers mainly Saturday night into Sunday morning.
Cooler but with still above normal temperatures early next week along with a chance of rain Monday and Tuesday.
