Scattered Snow Showers Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature scattered snow showers as a few weak disturbances drift overhead. The Midcoast and mountains will see the most widespread snow, with 1-3″ of accumulation. Elsewhere, a dusting at best is expected. Skies will remain mostly cloudy for the entire area through the day. High temps will range from 20 in the north to 35 in the south.

Cold air moves in tomorrow ahead of our major storm system which arrives late tomorrow night. The general forecast for around two feet remains on track. Higher amounts (up to three feet) are possible in the mountains, with lower amounts (12-18″) along the coast where a period of sleet is also possible. More details on that system in the coming days.

Increasing Clouds This Afternoon

Hello everyone!

Today will feature morning sunshine and afternoon cloudiness as our next storm system approaches from the west. This system will be on the weaker side, an appetizer for the main course on Sunday. Highs will be on the cooler side, ranging from 5 in the north to 25 in the south.

Precip from the incoming system will arrive later tonight and continue into tomorrow morning. It appears to be on the spottier side as the system has very little moisture to work with. A general 1-3″ of snow can be expected.

The main course storm arrives Sunday with a general 1-2 feet of snow. Wax up those powdah skis and get yourself to the nearest ski mountain!

Strong Cold Front Arrives Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature the arrival of a strong cold front as low pressure tracks to our north. Out ahead of this front, slightly warmer air will flow north before the latest shot of polar cold arrives tonight. Look for high temps to range from 20 in the north to 35 in the south. The front will bring some clouds with it, especially in the mountains. A few snow showers are possible in the favored areas this evening as winds shift around to the northwest. Otherwise, it’s another generally quiet winter day.

Slowly Warming Up Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature continued clear skies as well as slightly warmer temps as the core of the last cold shot moves off to the east. Highs will range from 15 in the north to 30 in the south with no precip expected. Enjoy the lovely weather! Our next chance of a storm arrives this weekend and tentatively looks snowy as of now.

Cold And Clear Today

Hello everyone!

A winter storm is developing off the East Coast today, but it will remain well south of our area. All the air rising over the Mid Atlantic will be sinking over New England, so we’ll enjoy clear skies and cold temps while high pressure builds overhead. Highs will be just a bit above what we saw the past couple days, ranging from 10 in the north to 25 in the south. Enjoy the beautiful winter weather!

Still Cold And Breezy Today

Hello everyone!

A powerful area of Canadian high pressure will continue to approach the area today, meaning that we’ll keep our cold temps and breezy conditions throughout the area. Look for high temps once again ranging from 0 in the north to 20 in the south. The mountains have wrung out most of the moisture embedded within the NW flow, so look for sunnier skies and evaporating upslope flurries. NW winds will be gusting around 20-25 mph along the coast with 35-40 mph gusts in the mountains. Bundle up, winter is here!
