Today will feature slowly clearing skies as the area of low pressure that brought snow to the region last night moves off to the northeast. Most of the area is done with accumulating snow as of 6 AM, but radar imagery shows some flakes still flying across the mountains and far eastern parts of the area. An additional 1-2” is possible in the mountains due to upslope flow and the presence of a weak surface trough, while eastern areas near the Camden Hills are likely only to pick up a dusting-1” of additional snow.
As per usual, skies will clear first along the coastline midday before sunshine expands north and west later in the afternoon. Most of the mountains will have to wait until tomorrow for sunny skies. NW winds will pick up behind this storm, but that process will take a little longer than usual as light winds linger ahead of the weak surface trough I mentioned earlier. Some gusts in the 25-30 mph range are possible later this evening, with the primary impact being wind chill related.
High temps today will range from the low 20’s in the northern mountains to the upper 30’s in SE NH.
