Default Winter '09-'10 is underway

The season's first snow is possible in the higher elevations of the Lakes Region tonight. Showers are expected to develop this afternoon and linger through the evening, especially at elevation. As the air cools they will change to snow at elevations of 1500 feet or higher. Mountains such as Whiteface or Passaconaway, which are near Sandwich, may have an inch accumulation. Elsewhere, no accumulation is expected.

An early season cold air mass is making its way through the western US where it is creating the first major snowstorm of the season in the mountains of Utah and western Wyoming. As the cold air plows the warmer air of the plains out of the way, expect to see reports of damaging severe weather there -- possibly a tornado outbreak. The cold air will then take over those areas too.

The system will move to the northeast this weekend but will bring us a soggy couple days of chilly rain.

Expect an unsettled pattern in the meantime, with each day having a mix of sun and showers. Any showers lingering at night may turn to snow at the higher elevations.
