CLIFTON’S ALMANAC FOR JANUARY 27TH:
AVERAGE HIGH: 37 AVERAGE LOW: 22
RECORD HIGH: 67 – 1974 RECORD LOW: -5 – 1994
YESTERDAY’S HIGH: 32 LOW: 29 PRECIPITATION: .10″ SNOWFALL: 0.8″
The low pressure that caused the precipitation yesterday and overnight is moving further offshore and we should still be mostly cloudy today but temperatures will moderate somewhat with highs near 40.
Another storm will be developing offshore on Thursday but far enough away to not give our area any precipitation, but will cause a strong northerly flow of colder air on Thursday.
The coldest two day period of the season will occur Friday into Saturday with highs only in the 20s and overnight lows in the low teens. Winds will continue to be strong on Friday but diminish on Saturday.
Still another low pressure area will move into the area on Sunday which will give us a good chance of snow later Sunday into Monday. Too early to tell what the track and intensity of this storm will be and if we get any significant snowfall.
