Today will feature the approach of another Arctic cold front as our cool and active pattern rolls along. The front won’t cross the region until this evening, which means we’ll spend most of today on the warmer side due to southwesterly flow ahead of the boundary. Additionally, coastal areas will likely enjoy several hours of sunshine this morning which will further boost temps. As a result, SE NH is likely to approach 50 degrees this afternoon while rest of the coastal plain tops out in the 40’s and the mountains remain stuck in the low/mid 30’s.
The front will enter the mountains during the mid-evening hours with a line of snow squalls that will result in low visibilities and a quick coating-1″ of snow. These squalls will lose much of their momentum as they move SE of the mountains later in the evening. Another cold airmass will move in on gusty NW winds later tonight into tomorrow.
