The low to our west will begin to move eastward on Thursday and combine with southern stream energy to form a coastal low which will bring rain, and possibly mountain snow, to the region late Thursday through Friday. Snow levels may drop to around 1500′ with accumulating snow over mountain summits especially over the ‘Dacks and southern Green. Friday will be raw and chilly with highs in the 40s. High pressure will build back in on Saturday bringing a return to dry and seasonable conditions.

About Today’s Photo:
The red maple in our back yard by Fargo Brook reliably puts on a show both in spring and in the fall. I’ve been watching the buds swell over the past weeks, and yesterday the tree was in full flower. I love the delicate intricacy of the flowers.
