Snow/Rain Showers Today As Arctic Front Approaches

Hello everyone!

Today will feature rain or snow showers depending on your location as an Arctic front pushes through the area. Expect snow showers turning to rain showers along the coast and in the foothills while the mountains stay snowy. The front itself will push through late this morning and behind it NW winds will begin to blast the region full force as more cold air moves in. An area of low pressure will develop to our SE along the front and intensify as it moves towards Atlantic Canada. Eastern areas will see some light snow out of this however the main impact will be the strong winds that will continue through tomorrow.

As for temps, today will be a warm one ahead of the front with coastal and inland areas rising into the 40’s and the mountains making it all the way into the low 30’s. Behind the front, temps will tumble into the 10’s and single digits tonight with a strong wind making it feel much colder. Wind chill values will likely dip into the 20 below range in the mountains while the coast sees wind chills in the single digits below zero tomorrow morning. Welcome back to winter!
