The first shot of incoming cold arrives this afternoon and will be felt through the overnight, with an increasing wind producing noticeably colder wind chill values Thursday afternoon and early evening amidst scattered snow showers that will drop a coating of snow on some communities, and up to an inch in a few spots of Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.
No significant commute impact is expected, but where more focused snow showers fall in the aforementioned spots, a few slick spots may result.
With lows in the single digits overnight tonight, wind chill values will dip below zero ahead of a chilly Friday that starts with sun and ends with clouds and highs in the 20s....Though the wind will slacken a bit during the day.
Friday night marks the leading edge of a more significant blast of weekend cold, and New England is likely to see some pockets of snow moving through, which may be enhanced on cape cod and parts of Maine - particularly Midcoast through central Maine where bursts of snow should linger into Saturday.
Otherwise, our weekend surge of cold brings highs in the teens, and overnight wind chill values of 20 to 30 below zero Saturday night.
Sunday brings cold and dry air with a blustery wind before a shot of snow and rain Tuesday and a milder pattern for the end of next week into next weekend.
