Some Sunday Snow

Did I mention it was achieved at 12:36 this morning? After the morning snow showers(and even a low-topped thunderstorm with hail....NOT sleet...in New Jersey!) gave way to sunshine in the afternoon there was cold air and a stiff northwesterly wind keeping temperatures into the middle 30s(and the wind chill into the middle 20s). We'll reach the low temperature before Midnight as although clouds roll in overnight the lack of clouds after sunset allowed the temperature to tumble quickly(just like taking a lid off of a cup of hot soup).

Sunday will be cloudy with scattered snow showers mixing with and changing to rain(especially to the north) as a clipper pushes through the region; we may get some partial clearing by the late afternoon as highs reach either side of 40. As for accumulation they will be light with the best "shovel" snow being north and west in the higher elevations.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day will start off with a few clouds, but by lunchtime it's overcast with a few rain showers as temperatures climb toward the middle 40s; overnight into early Tuesday morning a cold front ushers in colder air we will see a changeover to snow and also cause anything that's wet to freeze(and hence, ice). Temperatures at Midnight will be in the upper 30s, but tumble throughout the day and settle into the upper teens by the overnight hours.

On Wednesday we'll finally get some sunshine! The catch is that we'll only warm up a few degrees into the lower 20s. We'll flirt with the freezing mark on Thursday with another clipper coming through, but behind that it's back into the 20s to end the work week despite plenty of sunshine.

Of course don't forget that you can check out the rest of the seven day forecast any time at www.scottderekwx.com/forecast.html.
