Today will feel like true winter as cold air pours in from the north west. Winds will gradually subside but Portland has been gusting to 30mph all night and this will continue through the morning hours. Current temps are below zero across the entire region as of 6:00 AM with -2 in Portland and -5 in Rockland. Temps up in the mountains are near -20. Highs today will be cold, there’s no way around that. Highs above zero will be confined to the coast and possibly the southern foothills where single digits above zero are forecast. Single digits below zero are expected in the mountains.
Snow arrives tomorrow. 3-6″ of accumulation can be expected. I will try to have an update on that this evening but given scheduling constraints, no guarantees.
