Merrimack Valley Regional
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! Well, it feels & looks
more like Christmas morning than Thanksgiving as we wake up to around
4" of snow & ice which was brought to us by a fast moving
Nor'Easter which is now making it's way through Newfoundland. If
you're heading "Over the river & through the woods to Grandma's
house" today, you can expect chilly temperatures in the mid 30's with
clouds & breaks of sunshine as a weak ridge of High pressure builds
over the region. Forecast may get a "bit" tricky tonight as a
trough of low pressure looks to bring a period of light snow,
especially along coastal Massachusetts, as it swings through the region
late tonight & early Friday morning. Right now it looks like
we'll see a very light accumulation of snow in the Merrimack Valley,
more closer to the coast, but we'll be keeping a very close eye on the
situation in case things change. Nevertheless, conditions improve
Friday afternoon, but it will remain chilly with high temperatures in
the lower to mid 30's. Chilly & fair during the day Saturday
but we may see a period of snow showers or mixed precipitation
developing Saturday night as a warm front approaches. Turning
milder on Sunday after the passage of the warm front. Have a
Happy & Safe Thanksgiving Day
