From the TV 5 Forecast Center:

 

A weak area of low pressure is forecast to move through the state this afternoon and evening bringing us some scattered snow showers with accumulations of a dusting to 1” possible in spots. Temperatures will continue below average today with highs in the mid-teens to mid-20s. Snow showers will move out early tonight as the disturbance moves to our east followed by clearing skies as a weak ridge of high pressure slides in. Temperatures will bottom out a couple degrees either side of 0° for nighttime lows.

 

We will see a repeat performance on Thursday as another weak disturbance is forecast to approach from the Great Lakes region and move through the state during the afternoon and evening hours. As the disturbance moves through, we’ll see more snow showers with accumulations of a dusting to 1” possible in spots by later in the evening. Thursday’s temperatures will top off in the mid-teens to low 20s for highs. Sunshine returns to our forecast Friday as high pressure noses into the area with temperatures in the mid-teens to low 20s for highs. Snow showers will be possible again on Saturday as weak low pressure moves across southern Quebec then over northern Maine later in the day.
