Today will feature a temporary return of our NW wind pattern as a cold front moved through last night. This time, however, real cold air is set to move in as opposed to that pseudo cold behind last week’s fronts. Temps will start in the 20’s to low 30’s this morning before falling into the 10’s/low 20’s by this afternoon. Skies will start mainly sunny but will gradually turn cloudier as our next storm system approaches. I hope to have a more detailed update on it this evening.
Our WNW wind pattern will finally be broken today as a clipper system moves to our north. Look for slightly milder temps along with more clouds and SW breezes. Some snow showers will be scattered about the north country where an inch of accumulation is possible in spots. Things are expected to remain mostly dry in the south. Highs will range from around 20 in the north to right around freezing along the coast.
Messier weather arrives Tuesday morning but as a result of Patriot domination forecast this evening, my full update on that will be pushed back to tomorrow night.
Our recent upslope/downslope pattern will still be going strong today as westerly winds drive our weather. Up in the mountains, look for cool temps, more clouds than sun, and the chance for a flurry or two. Highs in the mountains will be in the mid to upper 10’s. Along the coast, more sun than clouds is expected along with dry conditions and milder temps. Highs along the coast are expected to top out right around freezing.
Some light snow is possible in spots tomorrow before heavier snow/sleet/ice moves in Tuesday into Wednesday.
We’ll continue our stretch of weather being governed by W/NW winds today as light breezes continue behind a cold front that passed through yesterday. Some colder air moved into the region behind that front and as a result, highs today look to be a bit cooler than they have been in recent days. Look for temps to top out just shy of 20 in the north and just shy of 30 in the south. Skies will feature a mix of sun and clouds with more clouds than sun up in the mountains and vice versa along the coast. Mountain snow showers will continue today but will be lighter and less widespread as the moisture supply gradually dries up.
More interesting weather is on tap for early next week.
Today will feature moderate temps, a mix of sun and clouds, and the chance for snow showers or squalls as a cold front moves through. Look for highs to range from the low 20’s north to just above freezing in the south. A passing cold front will bring more snow showers and squalls to the region beginning in the mountains around noon and ending up on the coastal plain by 3 or 4 PM. They’ll move offshore by sundown. They’ll bring low visibility and a quick coating to possibly an inch of snow so look out if traveling this afternoon.
Here’s a visualization of the snow squalls. Not everyone will get one but many will, especially in Maine. It might be a little touchier in NH.
Some more light snow is possible Sunday before a larger storm of unknown impact next week.
Today will feature light snow this morning followed by partial clearing in the afternoon. Look for a general 1-3″ of snow with a few 4″ amounts possible along the coast. Light snow will continue through around noon when it will taper off to snow showers from SW to NE. Most areas should be dry and starting to catch glimpses of the sun by 3 or 4 in the afternoon. These glimpses will be most likely in the SW where they are expected to bring temps a little above freezing for highs. Farther NE, the clouds will keep the cold air in place and thus temps will be a bit cooler in the 23-28 range.
