The headline-making coast-to-coast storm that arrived in New England Monday is not quite done yet.
Hundreds are still without electricity in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine due to the weight of the snow on trees bringing down power lines. Some ski resorts are reporting more than 30 inches of snow this week.
The storm is stalled over Nova Scotia and strengthened Wednesday night to the power of a hurricane. We have a backlash band of snow in eastern Maine overnight and early in the morning. Otherwise, the tendency is for drying and cold wind Thursday.
Overnight temperatures cooled enough for a bit of a re-freeze, in the 20s to low 30s by dawn. Other than the mountain snow ending, and early snow in eastern Maine, we should turn partly sunny with high temperatures near 40 degrees, wind out of the northwest gusting past 30 mph.
A weak area of high-pressure brings clearing overnight with the colder start Friday, low in the teens and 20s. Any sunshine is going to quickly fade as a warm front approaches from the west. That front will generate some light snow, freezing rain, and rain by evening and overnight.
Saturday looks mostly dry as high-pressure once again builds in from southeastern Canada, resulting in a few hours of sunshine before the next system brings clouds in again later in the day. High temperature once again near 40 degrees.
Low pressure moves in to New York Saturday night and Sunday, with snow and sleet in northern New England, and rain in southern New England. There may be significant icing in the state of Maine, otherwise it’s a wet Sunday with the temperature jumping into the lower 50s in southern New England.
Cold air comes in with drying Monday afternoon and night. The next system is rushing right in on Tuesday with more snow and rain by sunset. Another significant coastal storm is possible Tuesday night and Wednesday, more one as it gets closer.
