Mostly sunny, breezy and much milder today! Mild again on Thursday! Cooler and windy on Friday! Very cold weather for the weekend with a chance of snow late Sunday night into Monday!


Good morning everyone!

Skies are mostly clear early on this Wednesday morning and once again it is quite chilly with temperatures at 5 a.m. range from 16 in Clifton down to 9 at Walpack and Sussex. Winds are a little brisk out of the south.

CLIFTON’S ALMANAC FOR JANUARY 12TH:

AVERAGE HIGH: 36 AVERAGE LOW 22

RECORD HIGH: 67 – 2020 RECORD LOW: -1 – 1981

YESTERDAY’S HIGH: 22 LOW: 13 PRECIPITATION: NONE

The Arctic high pressure that gave us the very cold weather the last couple of days is now moving offshore and a southerly flow of much milder air will move into our area. Daytime highs will be nearly 20 degrees warmer than yesterday, however with winds gusting to 25 mph will make it feel cooler.

Another milder than normal day on Thursday with partly sunny skies, less wind and highs in the 40s.

A cold front will cross the area on Friday as a low pressure develops well offshore. High temperatures in the 30s will drop into the 20s by sunset and possibly to the single digits by Saturday morning.

Very cold especially on Saturday with temperatures similar to yesterday with highs struggling to reach 20 degrees. Not quite as harsh on Sunday but a storm expected to develop will give us a chance of snow Sunday night. At this point most models have the storm move along the coast and some milder air may move in to change the snow to rain on Monday but since it is 5 days away the track and strength of the storm will probably change.
