Chilly And Breezy Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature clearing skies downwind of the mountains as colder air pours in on NW winds. Look for chilly temps ranging from 10 in the north to 25 in the south. Winds will be strongest of course in the mountains, but everyone should see some gusts above 30 mph. That won’t be enough to cause too much in the way of power interruptions, but it will be enough to make the cool temps feel even chillier. As for clouds and precip, NW winds will set up our classic upslope/downslope pattern with overcast skies and flurries in the mountains. As for coastal areas, some morning clouds and flurries are possible as some moisture lingers from yesterday’s departing storm system, but that will quickly clear out to sunny skies this afternoon.

Light Snow Gradually Departs Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature light snow for the first part of the day, especially in parts of Maine closer to a weak low pressure system offshore. Snow will taper of from west to east over the course of the day today, with the midcoast hanging onto the flakes the longest. As the sun comes up, look for temps to warm a bit, with a change from snow to rain expected east of route 1. Highs will range from 25 in the north to 40 along the NH seacoast. Everyone will see drier weather tonight outside of upslope regions as cold air begins to pour in from Canada.

Quick Moving Storm Arrives Tonight

Hello everyone!

Today will feature increasing clouds and mild temps in advance of our next storm system which is set to arrive late this evening. Expect morning sunshine to fade after lunch as that storm gets closer. Temps will be on the milder side as we wait for the storm to develop its own internal cold air source, with highs ranging from 25 in the north to 40 in the south.

The storm arrives with a mix of rain and snow this afternoon in southern NH, before moving into Maine with snow tonight. Expect 3-6″ of snow along the coastal plain, with slightly less along the immediate shoreline where some sleet and ice may mix in. Lighter 2-4″ amounts are likely in the mountains where moisture will be less readily available. Snow clears out with strong NW winds developing later in the day tomorrow.

Milder Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature milder temps and initially cloudier skies as a cold front slides through the area. As the front moves offshore, downsloping NW winds will bring sunny breaks to the coastal plains while cloudy skies continue in the higher terrain. Temps will be warmer as well, due to the warmer airmass associated with the front. Look for highs ranging from 35 in the north to 45 in the south. No precip is expected as dry air filters in from Canada.

Warmer And Cloudier Today

Hello everyone!

A cold front is beginning to approach from the west today, and as a result we’ll be looking for warmer temps and cloudier skies across the area. Any sunny spots this morning will gradually become obscured by this afternoon with light snow arriving in the northern mountains this evening. Accumulations will remain confined to the higher terrain, with less than 2″ expected even there. Temps will range from 30 in the north to 45 in the south.

Cool And Clear Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature cool temps and mostly clear skies as Canadian high pressure anchors overhead, and a weak system moves by to our south. Bitter cold temps this morning will rebound into the mid 10’s north and low 30’s south. Most of the region will see clear skies with the exception of SW areas which will see some clouds from the aforementioned weak system moving by to our south.

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.
