Forecast Discussion from the Fairbanks Museum:
An area of low pressure will move from Pennsylvania eastward to the western Gulf of Maine today. Marginally cold temperatures will contribute to areas of snow and mixed precipitation today, mainly for northern New Hampshire. As the storm exits to the east overnight, northwest winds will set up, drawing colder air in from Canada, promoting a changeover to all snow. High pressure arriving from the southeastern United States will offer fair weather for Thursday, but a progressive cold front will take aim at the area on Thursday night. Mild air returning ahead of the front should ensure mostly rain falls with that system, although there my be a period of wet snow at the onset. Mountain snow showers will linger behind the front into this weekend, which could provide for a White Christmas.
