Forecast Discussion

A wave of low pressure passing just to our north today will keep the higher summits mostly in the clouds today, with temperatures slowly recovering from the below freezing readings seen last night. Gusty northwest winds will slowly decrease as the day goes on, with the best chance for clearing towards the end of the day as high pressure begins to build into New England. Overnight fog will clear from the higher summits shortly after sunset, with the majority of the night remaining in the clear and temperatures only slightly falling as more mild air begins moving into the region. Wednesday high pressure will become firmly in control, with plentiful sunshine, light winds, and temperatures climbing into the 40s. Above average temperatures and fair weather will continue through the next several days.
