Sunny and cold today! Dry and not as cold during the day on Thursday! Strong coastal storm will likely give us some snow mainly Friday night through Saturday morning!


Good morning everyone!

Skies are mostly clear early on this Wednesday morning and temperatures at 5 a.m. range from 18 in Clifton down to 7 at Walpack and Sandyston. Winds are light from the north.

CLIFTON’S ALMANAC FOR JANUARY 26TH:

AVERAGE HIGH: 37 AVERAGE LOW: 22

RECORD HIGH: 57 – 2017 RECORD LOW: 0 – 1994

YESTERDAY’S HIGH: 42 LOW: 25 PRECIPITATION: NONE

Arctic high pressure will be building into our area today giving us sunny skies but with cold temperatures as highs will be mainly in the 20s. Winds will not be that strong coming from the northwest around 5-10 mph.

Very cold tonight with lows dropping to the single digits under clear skies but highs during the day tomorrow will be around five degrees higher than today as the high pressure starts moving offshore.

A weak disturbance from the west will give us a chance of snow during the day on Friday and a strong coastal storm will likely give us snow Friday night into Saturday morning. At the present time the American GFS model has the storm too far to our east to give us heavy snow but the European model is still indicating a heavy snow event for our area. We should have a better idea of the storm’s track by tomorrow morning as better data is ingested into the models. The snow will taper off Saturday afternoon and there is only a chance of snow Saturday evening.

Dry weather is expected Sunday through early next week. Sunday will be quite cold but temperatures will slower moderate Monday and Tuesday.
