It will be mostly cloudy but mild this afternoon as a weak area of low pressure tracks into northern New England putting us on the milder side of things. Out ahead of this system our flow has turned into the southwest as the wind increases and our temperatures moderate into the middle 40s! Although it will be cloudy there may be a few glimpses of sunshine here and there. This evening we may see an additional spotty light shower or a few sprinkles, but it's mostly dry. Colder air will moves in behind this system for the middle of the week but even still temperatures will reach near 40 tomorrow and into the middle and upper 30s Thursday and Friday.
An ocean storm will develop just off shore on Thursday but is looking more and more like it will pass way out-to-sea. An upper level system swinging through later in the week will bring us some clouds and maybe a few flurries or a snow shower late Thursday or early on Friday. But we are not expecting any accumulation. As of now there are no big snowstorms in sight and no Arctic air mass either. In fact, temperatures will likely stay at or above normal for the next week or so, right in the heart of winter!
