Mostly sunny and quite cold and windy today! Mostly sunny on Sunday and not as cold! Light snow likely Monday night into Tuesday! Possible stronger storm at the end of next week!


Good morning!

Skies are partly cloudy early on this Saturday morning and temperatures range from the upper 20s in Clifton down to the upper teens further inland, winds are gusty out of the northwest.

CLIFTON’S ALMANAC FOR JANUARY 23RD:

AVERAGE HIGH: 37 AVERAGE LOW: 21

RECORD HIGH: 61 – 2018 RECORD LOW: -3 – 1976 20″ of snow fell in 2016

YESTERDAY’S HIGH: 46 LOW: 33 PRECIPITATION: NONE

High pressure will build into the area from the mid-west causing a brisk northwest flow of colder air. High temperatures will struggle to reach the freezing mark and with northwest winds gusting to 30 mph will make it feel like the teens all day despite mostly sunny skies.

The high pressure will then be near our area on Sunday, temperatures should be a couple of degrees higher, winds will slowly diminish throughout the day.

A weak low pressure will be moving south of our area on Monday but close enough to cause some light snow Monday night into Tuesday, accumulations should be around 1-3 inches.

High pressure will then give us dry weather Wednesday into part of Thursday, temperatures will be seasonably cold.

Watching for a potential stronger storm at the end of next week. Most models have the storm too far to our south and east to give us any snow but the latest GFS model has the storm close enough to our area to cause heavy snow. So stay tuned for later forecasts.
