Light Snow This Morning Replaced By Clearing Skies This Afternoon

Hello everyone!

The connection between Canadian and Carolinian storm systems developed as projected last night, and remains delicately in place this morning. Light snow is being reported mainly north and east of Portland, as well as in the mountains. Snow outside of the mountains will be quickly drying up later this morning as the Canadian disturbance races off to the east. Sunshine will then develop downwind of the mountains this afternoon, with upsloping continuing in the higher terrain. High temps will range from 15 in the north to 30 in the south.

Chance Of Some Light Snow Later Today Along The Coast

Hello everyone!

Another cool and generally quiet day is expected today as we sit between two disturbances aloft. The first disturbance to our south will produce a coastal storm far offshore. The second disturbance to our west will bring some light snow to the mountains tonight. A very weak connection will form between the two systems this evening, which will result in some light snow showers along the coast beginning late in the afternoon and continuing through the evening. At most an inch of snow can be expected from these snow showers, but watch for a few slick spots on the roads if you’re headed out and about. High temps will range from 15 in the north to 35 in the south.

Another Cool And Dry Day Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature more cool and dry weather as Canadian air filters through the area. Highs will range from 15 in the north to 30 in the south under increasingly sunny skies. Some morning flurries in the mountains will clear out for the afternoon as any remaining moisture is squeezed out by the effects of upsloping. Enjoy the lovely winter day!

Clouds Increase This Afternoon Ahead Of Mountain Snow Tonight

Hello everyone!

Today will feature morning sunshine becoming gradually obscured by cloud cover this afternoon/evening. The clouds will be spilling into the region from an area of low pressure moving through Quebec. This low has little moisture, but the mountains will be able to squeeze a few inches out of it before it moves into the Canadian Maritimes tomorrow. Areas downwind of the mountains will remain mostly dry. As warm air tries to filter north out ahead of this system, temps will bump up a little bit today ranging from 15 in the north to 35 on the NH Seacoast.

Clear And Cold Today

Hello everyone!

Cold temps are expected today with mainly clear skies as Canadian high pressure builds into the region. Temps solidly below zero in the mountains this morning will only get marginally above zero this afternoon, with highs ranging from 5 in the north to 25 in the south. Some clouds will encroach on western areas later this afternoon, but otherwise clear/dry conditions are expected. Winds will be light out of the north/northeast as low pressure develops too far to our south for any precip.

A Chilly Upslope/Downslope Day Today

Hello everyone!

A cold front passed through the region last night, which means two features will be noticeable for today’s weather. It will be cold, and we’ll see upslope/downslope flow bring clouds and snow showers to the north while sunnier and drier conditions develop along the coast. The coast will start this morning with some brief flurries east of Bath and associated mid-level cloudiness, but sunshine will quickly develop as that disturbance races east. Highs will range from 15 in the mountains to 32 along the midcoast.

Another Generally Cool And Calm Day Today

Hello everyone!

Cool and calm weather is expected today as a cold front approaches from the west. Expect morning sunshine to gradually fade behind advancing cloud cover this afternoon as the front gets closer. Moisture associated with the front will touch off some flurries today, with the best chance for flakes in the mountains. The front will cross the area tonight with little fanfare, setting up an upslope/downslope day tomorrow. Highs will range from around 20 in the north to a little above freezing along the coast.
