A cold front will approach northern New England today, with a moist air mass in place helping to spark showers and a few thunderstorms this afternoon. Temperatures will climb to their warmest readings of the past week, reaching the 50 degree mark by the afternoon. Overnight showers will continue as the front crosses, with temperatures beginning to fall through the 40s and into the upper 30s with summit fog persisting. Temperatures will continue to plummet Monday as upslope flow continues, with any lingering showers mixing with snow, sleet, and freezing rain during the afternoon as temperatures fall below freezing. Below average temperatures and wintry conditions will continue into Tuesday.
