***SNOWFALL WARNING FOR THE EASTERN TOWNSHIPS***

Brief:

The potential for a stormy, cold March continues to be realized, with another potentially heavy snowstorm for eastern and southern areas. The mountain snows from the weekend, several inches, are finally over, and we’ll see a teasing amount of sunshine this morning before the clouds increase this afternoon. We are watching a charge of cold air driving south into the Great Lakes with considerable energy in the upper atmosphere, while a moist storm rolling through the southeastern US overnight is redeveloping along the South Carolina coast. The coastal storm’s track appears to be a little farther east than the last storm, with the heaviest snows through southern areas, and most of NH, but the trailing energy in the Great Lakes will again pull some of the moisture back into northern areas, especially the mountains Tuesday night through Wednesday night. Unlike the previous storm, a stronger center to our east will enhance the cold airflow over the mountains, with the potential for a long-lasting event over the higher terrain north, where snow showers may last the rest of the week. Temperatures will be running on the cold side as well.

Winds:

Winds today light and variable, becoming southeast 5 to 10 mph. Overnight, winds becoming north near 10 mph. On Tuesday, winds from the north 10 to 15 mph, increasing to 10 to 25 mph southeast Vermont and southern half of New Hampshire. gusting to 25 mph in the afternoon. The outlook for Wednesday calls for northwest winds near 10 mph.
