Thursday’s Weather

High pressure moves offshore today allowing for lots of sunshine with temperatures moderating into the mid-20s with continued dry weather.

Storm-tracking

A nor’easter is expected to develop near the East Coast on Friday and track northeastward near New England Saturday. Today’s track and strength will give Manchester 8-12″ or more of snow with blizzard-like conditions. Power outages and coastal flooding are both concerns from the storm’s winds that could gust over 45 mph and major disruptions to travel would occur with heavy snow and substantial blowing and drifting snow.
