    Brisk Wind Ahead of Mild Late Week

    A strong storm over Nova Scotia is teaming with a strong fair weather cell over the Great Lakes to crank out a strong wind for New England today, with gusts reaching 45 mph.

    Though this is unlikely to result in much damage aside from an isolated limb down for a power outage, the wind will knock about 10 degrees off of actual highs near 50 to create wind chill values of 35-40 at the warmest time of the day.


    Meanwhile, closest to the Atlantic Canada storm, Eastern and Northern Maine will see snow only slowly subsiding, though the mountains of the North Country have found snow showers diminishing quicker.

    As skies clear this evening and tonight, wind continues, so wind chill values will dip into the teens overnight, ahead of a bright and pleasant Wednesday.


    The next storm system approaches for week's end, but is expected to progress eastward slowly enough that Thursday see the benefit of a southerly wind ahead of the storm, carrying mild air with highs 65-70, but showers are expected to predominantly remain north and west of New England until Friday.

    Even as rain, and perhaps embedded thunder, crosses New England Friday, temperatures will still be mild until a sharp cold front crosses the region, bringing high temperatures down by about 10 degrees Saturday, and another 15 degrees Sunday, with a few scattered showers but not a washout either day.


    Monday sees a shot of air straight out of the lingering cold in Eastern Canada, and this will mean highs of only 35-40, well below the normal high in the lower 50s, but the air will moderate by the middle of next week in our exclusive Early Warning Weather 10-day forecast.
