Extremely Mild Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature extremely mild weather as a strong cold front approaches from the west. Expect high temps ranging from 40 in the insulated valleys up north to a little above 60 in SE NH. A few breaks of sunshine are possible especially east of the mountains, but overall expect mostly cloudy skies across the area today. With the exception of a few light rain/sleet showers this morning across the far north, dry weather is a pretty safe bet too. If you have any plans that take you outside (and not to the ski slopes), today’s an awesome day to get those done before cold air returns tomorrow.

As that cold air moves in tomorrow, many parts of the area especially away from the coast will experience freezing rain. While widespread power outages aren’t expected, I suspect a non-trivial number of folks will end up with the lights off for at least a few hours tomorrow night. Today is a great day to stock up on extra batteries/make sure your devices are charged/etc. in preparation for the ice. The best chance for outages will be found west of I-95 and north of 302. I’ll have a more detailed look at the ice either this evening or first thing tomorrow morning.
