One really only needs one word to sum up today’s weather: cold.
A shot of Arctic air is rolling through the region today behind a powerful storm bringing blizzard conditions to Nova Scotia. Gusty NW winds and subzero air temperatures will send wind chills well into dangerous territories this morning. As of around 6 AM, it feels like 20 below in Portland, 25 below in Lewiston, and 40 below in Jackman. That’s a pretty solid midwinter cold snap! Living in the great state of Maine you know the drill. Throw on another flannel, pour that extra cup of coffee, and don’t try to wake the car up too early.
Aside from the chilly temps, it will be a pleasant day with clear skies and no precip expected.
