A Little Warmer and a Little Brighter Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature modestly warmer temperatures and modestly brighter skies, at least for those downwind of the mountains. Another storm system has formed well to our east this morning after dropping a very thin dusting of snow over the Midcoast. Winds behind this system will shift around to the northwest, but for most of the area the warming influences of downsloping and associated sunshine will outpace the movement of colder air into the region from the west. So temps will warm into the mid 30s for most of the coastal plain and foothills while the mountains stay a little below freezing. Upsloping winds will keep snow showers going longer in the mountains where another dusting is possible by the end of the day.
