Temps Drop Ahead of Windy, Rainy and Snowy Weekend

An area of high pressure provides one more dry day before precipitation returns to New England. Overall, a cool and quiet day is expected today with high temperatures reaching into the low to mid-50s south, upper 40s to near 50 degrees across the North Country.

A chilly night is on tap overnight as high pressure slides off to our east, resulting in a northerly wind across the region. Lows bottom out near 30 degrees south, upper 20s north.

A developing low-pressure center moving north from the Ohio River Valley brings heavy rain and the possibility of damaging winds Friday into Friday night.

Right now, expecting a swath of 1+" of rainfall with areas up to 1.5" across central Massachusetts across New Hampshire into southern Maine. Given the past 7 to 10 days have been wet in New England and rivers and streams have remained elevated, flash flooding may become an issue for some low-lying areas.

Highs Friday only reach to near 50 degrees south and mid-40s north. Across the higher elevations of New England, the snow level drops to around 2,500 feet with snow showers ramping up Friday evening through Saturday.

When all is said and done, expect a widespread 1 to 3 inches of wet snow with 4 to 6 inches across the highest peaks and summits.

Area of low pressure depart the region on Saturday and high pressure moves back in across the region. Gusty west winds linger throughout the day with high temperatures reaching near 50 degrees south and upper 30s to near 40 degrees north.

A cold high pressure from the Great Lakes settles in for the remainder of the weekend, resulting in a cool and sunny Veteran’s Day on Sunday with highs in the low 40s.

Looking ahead to the start of next week, Monday will feature mostly sunny skies with clouds increasing as the day progresses. High temperatures will crest into the low 40s south and mid to upper 30s north.
