Wintry mix, frigid temps on tap in northern New England
A wintry mix that’s sweeping into northern New England is a prelude to the coldest temperatures so far this season.
The National Weather Service said northernmost Maine could see 10 to 14 inches of snow through Tuesday. Parts of central and northern Vermont also could see up to a foot of snow.
Lesser amounts are expected in northern New Hampshire, and parts of the western Maine mountains and foothills. Other areas will see a mix of freezing rain, and only an inch or two of snow.
Then the cold air arrives.
Temperature will dip into the single digits Tuesday night in the northern half of Maine and New Hampshire. The cold temperatures will continue Wednesday before warming a bit later in the week.
