Cool With Increasing Clouds Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature cool temps and increasing clouds as high pressure crests over the area and our next system begins to approach from the west. High temps will range from the mid 10’s north to the mid 20’s south. Skies will start sunny this morning, and end mostly cloudy by this evening, especially in the north and west. Right around sunset, expect light to moderate snow to move into New Hampshire and the foothills/mountains of Maine. This snow will continue off and on through the night, with minor accumulations (<2″) expected.

Cold, Breezy, And For Some, Snowy Today

Hello everyone!

Today’s weather will be overseen by the passage of a coastal low well to our southeast. This storm will be too far away to bring us into any heavy snow bands, but it will come close enough for the entire area to feel colder temps and breezy NNE winds, and some places along the midcoast and NH seacoast will see some light snow. Total snow accumulations will range from a dusting (if any) in Southern NH to possibly as much as 1-2″ in the Rockland-Camden area. NNE winds are bringing in not just a colder airmass, but also a drier one, which will keep everyone away from the immediate coast dry, and could even prevent places like the 295 corridor from Portland to Brunswick from seeing snow. Be sure to watch the HD radar products on weather.us to stay ahead of the snow today. If you follow that link, click the map to zoom in to county level to track the snow town by town.

High temps today will range from the upper 10’s in the northeastern part of the area to the upper 20’s in the Manchester NH area. Skies will be mainly overcast due to the storm though some sunny breaks are in the cards this afternoon for most folks as the storm departs.

Colder With Plenty Of Clouds Today

Hello everyone!

A coastal storm will begin a run up the waters off the East Coast today, and while it will remain too weak and too far southeast to bring us much in the way of impacts, its passage won’t go completely unnoticed. NNE winds ahead of this system will govern our weather today. Look for colder temps as a result of these winds, and as the storm moves a little closer, look for an increase in clouds too. Highs are expected to range from just below 20 in the north, to just below freezing in the south. Any light snow associated with this system will arrive in coastal/adjacent inland areas early tomorrow morning, and a coating-2″ is expected outside of the mountains.

One More Very Warm Day Today

Hello everyone!

The first of two cold fronts that will move through the region today has made it offshore this morning, bringing last night’s light rain to an end. The second front is currently in the Saint Lawrence river valley, and will arrive in Maine and New Hampshire this afternoon. Westerly winds behind the first front will shift northwesterly behind the second, and the combination will allow for warm temps and developing sunshine throughout the part of the area downslope of the mountains. Some of the higher terrain will see more cloudiness, though even there some sunshine is expected.

Temperatures this morning are very warm across much of the area, with upper 30’s and lower 40’s widespread. As downsloping and sunshine both develop this afternoon, expect those temps to bump up a little bit to the low 40’s in the north and upper 40’s to near 50 in the south. Cooler temps will arrive after that second front pushes offshore this evening. Some flurries are possible in the north as that front moves through, but otherwise I’m not expecting any precipitation today.

Much Warmer Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature much warmer temps as cold air get swept out to our east by warmth advancing ahead of a cold front in the Great Lakes. Temps are starting chilly this morning, in the teens and low 20’s, but will rebound dramatically this afternoon, from the mid 30’s north to likely what will end up being the upper 40’s south. This warmth will be moving in on breezy SW winds,¬†which could gust to 30 mph at times. Skies will start the morning with more sun than clouds, and end the evening with more clouds than sun as moisture associated with the cold front moves in.

Slightly Warmer Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature slightly warmer temps as the core of our most recent shot of cool air drifts east. Look for highs ranging from 15 in the north to 30 in Southern NH. Winds will be light and variable as high pressure crests over the region, while skies remain filled with more sun than clouds. Enjoy the lovely winter day!

Much Colder Today

Hello everyone!

Much colder weather is in store for today as Arctic-adjacent air pours into the area from the Northwest. I hesitate to call this Arctic air, as it pales in comparison to the bone chilling cold of the Christmas-New Year’s period, but compared to the past week or so of January Thaw weather, it will be pretty chilly. Look for highs in the single numbers north and 10’s south. Winds out of the NW won’t be quite as strong as yesterday, but it won’t take much of a breeze to make the chilly temps feel even colder. As for sky cover and precipitation, those NW winds and their upslope/downslope pattern will once again rule the day with sunny skies and dry weather downwind of the mountains and a mix of sun and clouds along with occasional snow showers in the higher terrain.
