Temperatures continue to fall overnight as our sky clears and colder air rushes in.
Lows dip into the teens in the south and single digits in the north. However, it will feel colder due to the northwest wind gusting between 20-30 mph.
“Real-feel” temperatures will run between 5 and -10 degrees Tuesday morning.
We are not expecting much relief Tuesday afternoon as wind chills run between 10-18 degrees. Actual highs will be around 30 degrees, with deceiving sunshine.
Another mid-week storm enters into the forecast for Wednesday night into Thursday. It's the same story it's been all winter— snow turning to a mix to rain.
More specifically, northern New England will get all snow during this storm. The center of low pressure tracks directly across central New England, making for the wintry mess. A thump of snow is expected Wednesday night, with a general 1-3” across southern New England before switching to sleet, then rain by Thursday morning. Wind gusts of 30-40 mph from the south will bring in the warmer air to allow temps to rise into the upper 40s Thursday.
The next few afternoon high tides may bring some minor flooding across typical vulnerable spots along the coast. Tide heights approach the 12 foot mark even without a surge. Any little splashover from the storm on Wednesday night into Thursday will increase the flood threat, something we will watch for.
The full “snow moon” will be officially full at 10:53 am Tuesday. This is why our tides are so high, some of the highest of the year.
Friday will be dry and sunny with highs around 40. More low 40s are in the forecast through next Monday.
A split weekend will give us clouds Saturday, and a chance for another wintry mix Sunday into Monday across the northeast. Snow will fall across northern New England and rain will fall across the south for that time frame.
Tuesday will be dry with highs in the mid 30s.
Wednesday gives us a wintry mix chance again, temps in the low 30s.
