High pressure is in charge for our Saturday, with a mix of sun and clouds, a nice day with seasonable highs near 40, and light wind. Low pressure from the southwest moves in late tonight. Rain arrives from southwest to northeast by late evening and overnight, starting as a very brief burst of snow in the western mountains and hills, and a longer burst of one to three inches of snow in the North Country, with higher amounts in far northeast New Hampshire and Northern Maine.
By Sunday morning, rain will be falling for the majority of New England, falling heaviest through midday with amounts of half an inch to an inch before tapering to scattered showers for most by later afternoon, in time for the Patriots game with a gusty easterly wind for most of the day. The exception is northern New Hampshire and much of northern Maine where significant snow and ice persists much of the day.
Monday looks like the only mild day next workweek, as cold air returns and we watch several cold fronts from Canada along with storm potential mid-week and next weekend (moderate potential) in our exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day Forecast.
