Areas that saw their first accumulating snowfall, will see drier conditions for Friday.
However, snow continues into northern Maine and pockets of snow showers still remain over higher elevations in Vermont and New Hampshire. The system that brought drenching rainfall for southeastern New England, the first accumulating snowfall for western Massachusetts and Connecticut, will slowly shift northeast and eventually off the coastline for the rest of our Friday. We certainly are making a dent in the severe to extreme drought that has been looming over the area.

Once this low pressure system moves off the coast, New England will then be on the backside of this system, ushering in blustery northwesterly winds, especially along the coastal areas.
