Today will feature the beginning of a significant warming trend as our Labrador storm weakens and drifts off towards Greenland, and northwesterly winds turn around to the west/southwest. Skies will start out clear today but clouds will increase later in the afternoon ahead of a weak system that marks the leading edge of much warmer air. This system may drop some snow showers in the mountains this evening, but accumulations are not expected to be significant. High temps will range from around 30 in the mountains to the mid 40s in southern NH. Some readers of this blog may be pleased to hear that, for the first time this season, forecast model guidance depicts a sea breeze along the southern coast this afternoon.
