Yet another cold front is crossing the region today which means yet another round of snow showers and squalls, especially up in the mountains. This afternoon’s round of snow showers follows another batch of light snow that has mostly departed the region but may still produce a few flurries east of I-95 and I-295 this morning. Skies will be mostly cloudy today with the possible exception of some bright spots closer to the coast midday and early in the afternoon.
The main round of squalls will arrive later this afternoon into this evening and could be quite potent. Though short-lived, squalls will produce heavy snow, strong winds, and greatly-reduced visibility. If you encounter a squall while driving, the best plan of action is to pull over and wait for it to pass. Usually these don’t linger over any given area for more than 5-15 minutes.
Snow accumulations today will range from 1-3″ up in the mountains to a dusting elsewhere. It is possible that squalls manage to linger for a little longer over portions of the coast between Saco and Bath due to a weak inverted trough. If this ends up happening, a few spots in this area may manage an inch or even two. Just like summertime thunderstorms, the impacts felt from these squalls in one town may be very different than those felt in the next town over.
High temps today will range from the upper 20s north to the upper 30s in southern NH.
