Today will feature widespread cloud cover, strong north-northeast winds, and falling temperatures as a powerful storm intensifies offshore. Tragically this will be happening about 150-200mi too far SE to bring a blockbuster blizzard to Maine. If that’s what you’ve been dreaming of, there’s (probably?) still time to hit the road for Halifax.
Here on the northwest edge of the storm, temps will rise briefly this morning, into the mid 30s along the coast and mid 20s in the mountains, before plunging nonstop this afternoon/evening/tonight. By tomorrow morning, it’ll be 10-20 below up north and +/- five down south with a howling northwest wind sending wind chills well below zero. Wind chill warnings are up for the foothills and mountains where it’ll feel like forty below tonight and tomorrow morning. Milder conditions are expected near the coast with wind chill values only making it 25 below zero.
