Merry Christmas! I hope everyone had a great day.
Tonight temperatures will be cooling down quite a bit as things clear out overnight. We'll see single digits north and teens south.
Tomorrow will be a quiet day. Temperatures will make it into the upper 20s and low 30s with mostly sunny skies. Winds will be from the northeast at 5-10 mph. Snow starts late tomorrow night as a low pressure approaches from our southwest. Winds will become strong from the northeast at 15-25 mph, gusting as high as 40 mph at times.
By daybreak, any snow will be quickly changing to rain along the immediate coast, especially in southern parts of Maine and on the coast of New Hampshire. The rain/snow will continue to push northeast throughout the day. Most of the region will stay all snow for the entire event. This could mean significant snowfall totals for some areas. I am expecting 6+ inches for the foothills and high elevations and far northern Maine as well. The immediate coast won't be seeing much, maybe 1-3 inches at best. 15-20 miles inland will start to pick up more in the way of accumulation, around 3-6 as you may see changeover to rain/sleet/freezing rain later in the day Thursday. Overnight everyone, event the coast, should change back into snow.
Also to note with this storm will be the winds, especially along the coast. They'll be around 25-35 mph and could gust higher both Wednesday night and on Thursday.
Things will taper off Thursday night into Friday from south to north. Friday looks quiet again.
Have a good night.
