Good morning!

With a couple of chilly days and snow back on the ground, the mild start to this month seems like eons ago! Winter weather is finally back in the North Country and that continues right through this weekend. 

In New Hampshire yesterday, 2-4" of new snow fell while a dusting to around 1" covers the ground in Vermont and northern New York. Additional light, scattered snow showers are likely on-and-off through Tuesday and Wednesday with a pair of weak disturbances moving through the region. We are looking at a dusting to near 1" Tuesday, then again on Wednesday. That puts snow totals from Monday through Wednesday night in the range of 3-6" across New Hampshire. In the Northeast Kingdom, along the spine of the Green Mountains and for the Adirondacks, 3-4" of new snow total. And elsewhere, 1-3" of new snow for a three day total.

Temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday will bottom out in the upper teens overnight, inching towards 30 during the day. On Thursday, the chill begins to set in with highs in the low 20s. By Friday, an Arctic cold front ushers in some of the coldest air of the season. High temps on Friday only reach the teens. Then on Saturday, most spots outside of the Champlain Valley will struggle to reach above zero degrees. Sunday is just a touch milder, with highs 10-15 degrees. But by Monday, highs are seasonable once again in the upper 20s.

Have a great day!
