Clayton Stiver's 7-day NH1 Forecast for Friday, Jan. 2, 2015
Source: NH1 Chief Meteorologist - NH1.com
A cold front will track across the area Friday Morning. The Mountains may see a few flurries or snow squalls, but most folks will just see some clouds with the frontal passage. The winds will be a little gusty with the frontal passage, perhaps gusting over 20mph throughout the day.
Arctic high pressure follows the front, cresting across NH for Saturday. A storm system will track in from our southwest Saturday Night and Sunday bringing a mixed bag of precipitation after a bout of plowable snow. Warm air aloft will mix down to the surface and allow for a change to plain rain as we work through the day Sunday. Roadways look to be primarily on the wet side certainly by Sunday Afternoon. The Mountains and Great North Woods may hang on to the wintry weather a little longer on Sunday.
Cold high pressure moves in thereafter for early next week. A weak area of low pressure may track through late Tuesday possibly bringing some snow showers or a period of light snow.
Cold arctic high pressure settles back in for the latter half of next week.
