Forecast Discussion

A warm front approaching from the west today will bring a return to foggy conditions across the higher summits, with temperatures climbing back to near average for this time of year. A few rain showers and drizzle could be possible as the front crosses, but otherwise the main effect of the front will be an increase in winds, with gusts approaching hurricane force. Overnight gusty winds and few isolated rain showers will continue, along with dense fog. A cold front will march towards New Hampshire tomorrow afternoon, with widespread rain showers and isolated thunderstorms possible. Temperatures will begin falling behind the front Monday, with icing conditions possible across the higher summits by midweek.
