Another quiet day is on tap today as a stalled frontal boundary hangs out to our south. We’ll start off the day with mainly clear skies north of the MA/NH border but as the front slowly shifts north, clouds will begin to overspread the area. This will happen gradually from south to north today and by the late afternoon hours, everyone should be enjoying some nice overcast. Highs today will range from the upper 20’s in the far north/mountains to low 40’s in interior Southern New England. An easterly wind ahead of the front will bring in air off the ocean which, having gone through the same winter we did, is pretty chilly (like mid 30’s chilly). This onshore flow will help to keep the coast somewhat cooler than everyone else.
Precip moves in this evening after dark and will continue through tomorrow morning. Several inches are likely with the highest amounts in southern ME/NH and far northern MA where near 6″ is possible. Along the coast though, just 1 or 2 degrees means the difference between 1″ and 5″ so while the ‘most likely’ scenario for southern coastal ME/NH is 2-4″, don’t be surprised if it’s just a tad warmer and a coating to an inch falls or if things end up being a tad cooler in which case 5 or 6″ could fall. I’ll do my best to post a more detailed update this evening but in case the schedule doesn’t work out, my next update will be tomorrow morning.
For those sad about the snow, our dreary week comes to an end Friday with the passage of a cold front and warmer temps move in for the weekend under sunny skies. Perfect for some spring skiing!
