    Today (Friday): Bright and brisk. WNW winds at 10-15 mph. Highs in the 30s. Overnight Friday Night: Wispy clouds with lows in the 20s. Saturday: Partly cloudy and mild. Highs near 50 degrees, upper 40s north. (Published Friday, Feb. 17, 2017)

    The sun is shining for most of southern New England, but a few snowflakes are still falling in the mountains of northern New England.

    At the snow stake near the summit of Mount Mansfield Vermont, we now have 102 inches of snow on the ground. That is the most we've seen there since 2011. And the fastest we've reached 102 inches since January 1969.

    The storm responsible for our most recent snowfall is slowly moving away through Labrador.

    Wind behind the system is still gusty from the Northwest, past 25 mph at times today. So even though high temperatures get just above freezing, the wind chill remains sub freezing for one more day.

    Starting tomorrow we are on the warmer side of the front.. for perhaps a week or so.

    High-pressure south of New England supplies a good amount of sunshine tomorrow and a high temperature near 40° north, and closer to 50° in parts of southern New England.

    A weak cold front in northern New England may trigger a few mountain snow showers on Sunday, but for most of New England it is still mild and dry, with a high temperature again near 50°.

    A pleasant high-pressure system from Canada will bring slightly cooler air in for Presidents' Day Monday, but with sunshine and seasonal weather makes for a fun work, play, or ski day. High temperatures near 40°.

    That high-pressure system stinks south of New England on Tuesday, with the return of mild air and high temperature back into the 40s.

    The crystal ball gets a little fuzzy starting mid week though, a series of fronts from Canada will be traversing northern New England, with storms going off to the south of New England also.

    The biggest player on the weather map is a major storm in Southern California. We will have to watch for some of that weather approaching us late next week.

    Temperatures likely are going to be above normal into late week, so we have a chance of rain, perhaps with snow north by next weekend.
