Sunny and not quite as cold today! Coastal storm to give us snow Friday night into Saturday morning, track and intensity and snowfall amounts still uncertain! Clearing and quite cold on Sunday!


Good morning everyone!

Skies are clear early on this Thursday morning and temperatures at 5 a.m. range from 13 in Clifton down to -6 at Sandyston. Winds are mainly calm.

CLIFTON’S ALMANAC FOR JANUARY 27TH:

AVERAGE HIGH: 37 AVERAGE LOW: 22

RECORD HIGH: 67 – 1974 RECORD LOW: -5 – 1994

YESTERDAY’S HIGH: 27 LOW: 17 PRECIPITATION: NONE

Arctic high pressure will be moving offshore and a southerly flow will bring moderating temperatures this afternoon but it will still be colder than normal.

A coastal storm will develop to our east and move up the coast and intensify. Depending on the track and intensity will determine snow amounts and the computer models are still not in agreement with the American (GFS) model has the storm too far to our east to give us significant snow while most of the other models have the storm closer to the coast which would give us heavier snow. At this time in the Clifton area may receive 4-8 inches of snow with less to our west and more to our east. However it is a tricky forecast so stay tuned for further updates.

Clearing and quite cold on Sunday.

Mainly dry Monday through Wednesday and becoming milder.

Good morning everyone!

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.

Still watching for a potential coastal storm Friday afternoon through Saturday morning which will give our area a good chance of snow. Right now it looks like the storm will be too far east to give our area significant snowfall but that will probably change so stay tuned for further updates.

Then we will be watching for a storm that is expected to rapidly develop offshore.

Very cold weather will continue Friday through the weekend and we will be tracking a possible storm that may give us snow Friday night into Saturday.
