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.
