Today will feature cold temps across the area with current readings in the single digits on either side of zero, even to the coast. Yesterday’s winds have tapered off as high pressure has put a plug in the wind stream so to speak, for now. However, with such cold actual temps, any breath of wind will make it feel a lot colder. Wind chill warnings/advisories are in effect for the Maine and New Hampshire mountains/foothills for this morning due to the combination of cold temps and winds.
A weak clipper system moving to our south will bring light snow/snow showers to the area this afternoon. Widespread snow shower activity is likely even outside the mountains. Since moisture is extremely limited with this system, no accumulations are expected but some flakes will by flying for sure.
Come tomorrow, we open the floodgates to even colder air so expect winds similar to yesterday’s, just with colder actual temps. Snow squalls will be widespread tomorrow with a widespread inch or so of accumulation even outside the mountains. Signals are strong for briefly white out conditions in the heavier squalls so be prepared for that as you’re out and about tomorrow. Some models have indicated a Norlun trough could bring enhanced snow to some areas tomorrow and should that happen an extra few inches is possible where it sets up. More details on that potential in tomorrow morning’s update.
