Tonight is the one month anniversary of the blizzard that brought a record setting 31.9" of snow to Portland. That same storm also brought heavy snowfall to southern New England and for many of those people the last 24 hours must have felt like deja vu. A very intense area of low pressure dumped another 1-2 feet of snow across parts of Massachusetts and Connecticut last night into today with 19 inches in Framingham and 22 inches in Dracut. The heavy snowfall reached southern New Hampshire with Seabrook recording a foot of new snow. From there the snowfall totals tapered dramatically with Portland only receiving an inch and a half so most of Maine dodged what could have been another record snow maker. The storm is going to track off to the east tonight with a ridge of high pressure following in its wake. The high promises to bring us a mostly sunny Saturday with temperatures climbing into the 40s. The high will move off to the east on Sunday and with a slow moving cold front headed our way look for increasing high cloudiness during the afternoon. Clouds will thicken Sunday night into Monday and by late Monday a few showers may break out. Showers are likely on Tuesday as the front moves through with an area of low pressure forming on it. Fair but cooler weather will follow for Wednesday.
