The cold air that has been sitting across the Plains, Upper Midwest and Great Lakes has shifted into the Northeast. A strong area of high pressure will bring a clear sky, calm wind, and cold temperatures to portions of the New England tonight and Friday morning. Frost is possible in Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New York and Connecticut, especially away from the coast. A freeze may occur in Central New Hampshire, as temperatures drop to the lower 30s.
The coldest lows for Friday morning will be found in northern sections of Maine and New Hampshire, where temperatures will drop back into the 20s. Readings will drop down close to freezing over much of the region, with warmer 40s along the coast.
The higher elevations will also find colder temperatures and frosty conditions, from the Adirondacks to the Berkshires. Near the Atlantic Ocean, temperatures will be significantly warmer.
