Our recent string of cool and quiet weather days will continue today as high pressure continues sliding in from the north and a storm develops well to our south over the Carolinas. Skies at the moment are partly to mostly sunny but high clouds continue to stream into the region from that system to our south. By this afternoon, some spots will still be seeing sunshine from time to time, but the overall balance will shift in favor of cloud cover. The cool airmass and filtered sunshine will keep temps on the cooler side of normal with highs ranging from around 20 in the north to around 30 along the NH Seacoast.
The light snow event tonight/tomorrow is looking lighter and lighter by the minute. We may not even have enough moisture to generate proper snowflakes, in which case a thin dusting of snow coated with some freezing drizzle would be the most likely outcome. Freezing drizzle is to me the most dangerous precipitation type since it can leave invisible coatings of ice on any surface that hasn’t been treated with salt. Watch your step and be extra careful on the roads if you’re headed out and about especially tomorrow morning.
This week promises to return us to a more active rhythm with light snow possible Monday and heavier snow (potentially mixed with sleet in southern areas) both Tuesday and Thursday/Friday.
