Mild But Unsettled Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature more mild temps, along with more unsettled weather as a cold front drifts towards the area from the west. Heavy rain is falling across southern parts of the area this morning due to that front, and those showers will drift north through the next few hours. Showers will become more scattered in nature by this afternoon, though the threat of rain will still be present. There could even be some sunny breaks between the showers, especially in the south and west. Any shower today south of Route 2 could produce a rumble or two of thunder, but no severe weather is expected. High temps will continue running on the warmer side, ranging from 50 in the north to 70 in southern NH.

Still Mild And Still Cloudy Today

Hello everyone!

Today will be similar to yesterday in that we’ll see mostly cloudy but not entirely overcast skies, and generally mild temps. It won’t be quite as warm as yesterday since we’ll be looking for a light NW wind instead of a light SW wind. Expect highs ranging from 45 in the north and along the immediate coast to 65 in interior southern NH. Clouds will be patchiest this morning, thickening up as we head towards the afternoon hours. This will be due to the approach of our next storm system from the west. Rain from that storm will move in from SW to NE after dark.

Unsettled But Very Mild Today

Hello everyone!

Rain is falling along the coast this morning as a frontal boundary moves offshore. This front technically is a cold front, but you wouldn’t know it looking at the airmass coming in for today. Despite mostly cloudy skies, high temps will range from 55 in the north to 70 in southern areas away from the immediate coast. This morning’s coastal rain will depart in the next hour or two, with some minor fog developing over the water in its place. How much of that fog moves onshore is still to be determined, but the best chance for foggy conditions will be across the Midcoast.

Brighter But Still Cool Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature sunnier skies and continued cool temps as the storm systems from earlier this week have moved out to sea. The best chance for cloud cover will be over western areas later this afternoon/evening as our next system starts to drift this way. High temps will be cool, but not nearly as cold as recent days, ranging from 35 in the north to 50 in the south.

Much warmer temps arrive with our next system this weekend.

Cool And Unsettled Weather Continues Today

Hello everyone!

Our second late-season winter storm will depart off to the east today, but cool and unsettled weather will remain in its wake. Most of the area will see predominantly cloudy skies today, with the exception of SE NH and perhaps parts of the CT valley too. Precip will continue across NE parts of the area, first as steady moderate snow this morning in parts of the Camden Hills and adjacent areas, followed by spottier snow showers anywhere NE of a Boothbay-Augusta line later this afternoon. Little in the way of additional accumulation is expected. Highs will range from 30 in the mountains to the low 40’s in SE NH.

More Cold And Snow Today

Hello everyone!

It will be another dreary day across the area today as cold air remains locked in to the east of the mountains. Expect the morning hours to feature overcast skies, off and on drizzle, and chilly temps. Precip will arrive from west to east during the mid to late afternoon hours. That precip will fall as rain along the coast south of Portland as well as in the CT river valley, but will be snow across the rest of the region. Snow totals will range from a coating in the south to 2-4″ in the northern mountains. Snow will continue into the early part of tonight before tapering off before sunrise tomorrow morning. High temps will range from 25 in the north to 40 in SW NH.

Late Season Winter Storm Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature a late season winter storm as low pressure slides across the region, and cold high pressure locks in to our northeast. Rain and snow are already falling across the region this morning, and some areas currently seeing rain will change over to snow in the next couple hours as cold air moves in and heavier precip arrives. The morning commute will be a messy one, especially anywhere north of Portland and away from the immediate coastline. Snow will change over to sleet for some inland towns later this afternoon as warm air arrives about 8-10,000 feet up, but the mountains especially the northeastern mountains should remain mostly to all snow. Snow accumulations will range from nothing along the coast south of Portland and in southern NH to 6-10″ near Sugarloaf.

High temps will also be fairly location dependent, ranging from 25 in the northern mountains to 45 in southern NH. Rain and snow will depart later on this evening.

We’ll get another storm right on the heels of this one tomorrow, and it looks to be another snowy one for most of the area though accumulations appear to remain relatively minor.
