Thursday January 30

The weather today will be a chance of snow showers, mainly between 10am and 5pm. Cloudy, with a high near 32 and a low around 28. Chance of precipitation is 40%. Total daytime snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible.

Our water and air temperature gauge is beginning to look more like the winter we want to see!

There is a chance building for more snow as a Nor’easter makes its way up the coast. It probably won’t be much accumulation, though.
