Forecast Discussion

High pressure will cross east of the area today, with low pressure over the Great Lakes redeveloping off the Mid Atlantic coast. Fog will remain intermittent over the higher summits today, with overhead clouds increasing ahead of the developing coastal storm. Overnight the summits will trend towards remaining in the clouds as moisture increases and winds shift towards the east, with a few upslope snow showers possible after midnight. Low pressure will track northeast into the Gulf of Maine by late Saturday, with a few snow showers during the morning becoming a more steady light snow during the afternoon. Snow accumulations through Saturday afternoon will remain light, with a trace to two inches possible. The low will rapidly intensity overnight and into Sunday, with winds across the higher summits steadily increasing to near hurricane force by Sunday morning and snow continuing.
