Quick update regarding tonights forecast

As I run through the model data, I see I will need to tweak a few things in the “Nowcast” for tonight. A Nowcast is a very short range outlook that is only for a few hours out.

Nowcast for New England

Midnight:
Clearing with a few breaks in the clouds. Winds shifting to the WNW at 10 mph. Temperatures will dip into the low 20s as opposed to around 30.

6 am tomorrow:
Low clouds with winds shifting more to the north.

Nowcast for Midcoast

Midnight:
Clear except for a few scattered low clouds in the North. Winds shifting from W to WNW.

6 am tomorrow:
Clear. Light and Variable winds for most of the area but light W winds in the far North.

Stay tuned and have a happy New Year.

Best wishes for 2012!
