Clayton Stiver's 7-day NH1 Forecast for Saturday, Dec. 6, 2014
Source: NH1 Chief Meteorologist - NH1.com
A northeast wind at the surface brings NH cold air. At the same time, a warm front will lift north across the region into Saturday Morning. This brings in warm air aloft which allows for a transition from snow to sleet to freezing rain. Eventually the warm air erodes the cold air at the surface as the winds shift to more of a southeasterly direction and this allows for a transition to plain rain Saturday Morning into the Afternoon. Be careful of slick roadways through Saturday Morning. By afternoon I expect most roads to be on the wet side with the exception of the north country where we may still hang on to a little frozen precipitation.
A cold front tracks through Saturday Night to sweep the moisture out of the region. Skies will gradually clear out.
High pressure will build in from the west Saturday Night into Sunday. This system will shift east of the area Monday. Low pressure will approach from the south and west Monday Night and Tuesday. Much uncertainty remains with the exact track and strength of this system but again, wintry weather will be possible. High pressure will build back in Wednesday and Thursday to make for fair skies but below normal temps. Stay tuned and have a great and safe weekend!
