Freeze warnings have been issued for much of the northeast for tonight and again for Sunday night. Warnings cover inland areas of the Hudson Valley and Connecticut. Freeze Watches remain in effect along the coast mainly south of the Merritt Parkway in Connecticut and near and along Rt 84 and then extending southward into much of New Jersey. The only areas that may not be vulnerable to a freeze will be the warmer urban areas around New York City, Newark, and Jersey City, and long the immediate coastal areas like Coastal Monmouth and Ocean Counties where the 65 degree ocean should give a good 5 to 10 degree cushion to temperatures there. Lows tonight will be in the upper 20s to lower 30s in the freeze warning area and mid to upper 30s elsewhere.
Monday morning will be another very cold morning with the likelihood of a widespread frost with clear skies and light winds forecast. Lows will be in the mid 20s to lower 30s with the exception being the warmer urban areas again. However Monday will be the last very cold morning as the core of the cold air begins to pull out rather quickly and we warm up back close to normal Tuesday and above normal on Wednesday into Thursday. See JOESTRADAMUS with the latest on a rather confusing long range outlook.
