Arctic high pressure crests 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. Snow and ice will accumulate on roads Saturday Night into the wee hours of Sunday Morning. Warm air aloft will mix down to the surface and allow for a change to plain rain after sunrise Sunday. Roadways look to be primarily on the wet side by the Sunday Noon hour. The Mountains and Great North Woods may hang on to the wintry weather a little longer.
Cold high pressure moves in thereafter for early next week. A weak area of low pressure/clipper system 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.
