Arctic air is back in charge of New England this morning and will remain so for the next couple days. Gusty NW winds behind a departing coastal storm that brushed the area yesterday will keep the cold air flowing throughout the day today. High temps won’t even make double digits up in the mountains while the coast should be able to struggle towards 20. Patchy sunshine downwind of the mountains this morning will promote rising instability by midday. As a result, upslope clouds and snow showers should find an environment favorable for straying into the foothills and coastal plain by the early afternoon. So while the steadiest snow, and best odds at accumulation above an inch, will remain in the higher terrain anyone and probably everyone will get some flakes by the time the sun goes down. Clouds, winds, and snow showers will fade after sunset.
