Cold and Breezy Today

Hello everyone!

For only the second time this winter season, a blast of Arctic air is headed our direction today. Expect NW winds to pick up throughout the day, becoming quite gusty by this afternoon. High temps will be reached relatively early in the day and will range from the mid 10s north to the upper 20s south. That means that by this afternoon/evening, wind chill values will be falling below zero area-wide. Our incoming airmass is not only cold, but also quite dry. That means that morning snow showers and flurries in southern NH and up in the mountains will fade away this morning leaving dry conditions by this afternoon. Cloud cover should follow the usual upslope/downslope pattern of overcast skies up in the mountains and generally sunny skies closer to the coast.
