...WINTRY PRECIPITATION EXPECTED TONIGHT AND MONDAY...
.Cold air will be moving into northern New England today as a wave
of low pressure approaches from the west. Precipitation is
expected to begin late today, possibly as a period of freezing
drizzle or snow. Precipitation will increase in intensity by
Monday morning, with the bulk of the precipitation ending during
the day on Monday. There remains considerable uncertainty
regarding precipitation type for much of New Hampshire and Maine.
Warm air will move in aloft tonight and Monday while cold air
remains entrenched near the ground. This will cause precipitation

of up to one quarter of an inch is possible in some spots.
Temperatures are expected to warm above freezing through the day
on Monday, allowing precipitation to change to rain in many areas.
