Our departed nor’easter will retain primary influence over our weather today as it spins itself out over the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. That means that northwesterly flow will continue to bring cooler air into the region from Canada.
This airmass can actually be traced back to the Pacific Ocean about 10 days ago so while its time over northern Canada certainly helped cool temps down a bit, this is not frigid Arctic air by any means. With that in mind, we’d expect our temps today to be seasonably cool but not much colder than that. Sure enough, model guidance is showing high temps in the upper 20s up north and the mid/upper 30s along the coast this afternoon.
With NW flow continuing, clouds will remain locked against the higher terrain while the foothills/coastline enjoy mostly sunny skies. Overall, today’s weather will be quite similar to what we saw yesterday except perhaps more sunshine along the coast and a little bit less in the way of snow shower activity up north.
