On the last day of climatological summer, mother nature is getting ready to change seasons. A strong cold front will blast through the region today as low pressure intensifies in Quebec. Winds will turn northwesterly behind this front and cold air will begin to pour in. There may be a scattered shower or two along the front itself but given the already dry airmass in place, no organized thunderstorm activity is expected. Downsloping NW winds will push temps into the mid 70’s along the coastal plains. Cooler temps in the mid 60’s are expected in the north. Skies will feature a mix of sun and clouds as the moisture-starved front moves throguh.
By tomorrow, the cold air will be deeply settled into the area and highs are only expected to reach the 50’s in the north and low 60’s south! As a bonus, upslope showers may fall in the form of snow across the Presidential range of NH. Snowfall accumulation of a trace to 1″ is expected through Friday afternoon at elevations above 5,000 feet. Winter is coming!
