Morning Snow Clears To Afternoon Drizzle And Fog

Hello everyone!

Today will feature the first in a two part series of storm systems that will bring a myriad of impacts to the area, ranging from heavy snow in the north to ice in the foothills to rain in the south. Today’s system is already ongoing, and in fact actually wrapping up this morning.

Snow has already departed western NH as dry air races in aloft. Farther east, Maine has another couple hours to go before precip tapers off mid-morning. The midday and afternoon hours will bring a lull in precip, with just some off and on snow showers in the mountains. Isolated drizzle is possible along the coast, with freezing drizzle expected inland. This will make for slick roads even though it’s not snowing! Fog will also develop along the coast and just inland, leading to reduced visibility.

In total, another C-2″ can be expected for parts of Maine that haven’t seen snow stop yet. The mountains will see another 1-4″ today as upslope flow helps produce enough lifting for precip.

Tonight, look for more steady/heavy precip to develop as the next storm rolls in. That will bring rain -> snow along the coast, freezing rain -> snow inland, and pure powder for the mountains. More detailed info tomorrow morning.
