Last complete site update: 2/04 - 5:24 PM

I have been waiting all day for the house to warm up to normal values. Still waiting!
The end of the brief but intense cold snap is nigh. Warm Air Advection is already occurring in a deep layer as clouds increase from the southwest this evening. The main question is how fast the winds come down and how quickly the clouds come in. Near steady or rising temperatures late tonight with cloudy skies. Snow showers in the mountains possible late. Lows rising into the teens after midnight.

A mostly cloudy day is in store Sunday with snow showers possible in the mountains. However, high temperatures will be a good 30 degrees higher than today's values. Will probably see mid 40s in the far south, and here in the Monadnocks, which may feel like summer to some folks.

Sunday night will feature a cold front approaching from the west. Some light snow or snow showers will be possible in the mountains and portion of the CT River Valley late. Otherwise it will be dry with lows in the 20s.

Long range: Strong low pressure will develop and pass over the open Atlantic Monday, while high pressure drifts over the region. Some snow showers will be possible in the mountains, with otherwise mostly dry conditions. The next chance of widespread precipitation will be Tuesday night into Wednesday as a front quickly passes through. Another weather maker will follow up Thursday into Friday with the chance for greater amounts of precipitation as it advects moisture northward.
