Clayton Stiver's 7-Day NH1 Forecast for Thursday, Feb. 12, 2015
Source: Clayton Stiver
We'll track a fast moving storm system diving out of Canada and moving across NH Thursday. This system, called a "clipper" system, will bring scattered snow showers and a few periods of light snow to the region from late Thursday Morning through early Thursday Night. A coating to maybe as high as 2" of snow can be expected although the 2" amounts should be very isolated and mostly across the mountains.
High pressure moves back in for Friday leading to sunshine. The high will keep fair skies in place through the daytime hours Saturday. A decent dip in the jet stream will allow arctic air to move back across NH. Cold temperatures are expected from Friday through the beginning of next week.
Things now look a little more interesting for Saturday Night into Sunday. Initially, another "clipper" system looks to swing through, but this time, this system appears as though it will slow down just off Cape Cod and rapidly intensify as it moves north-northeastward. This could potentially lead to another significant snowfall with gusty winds. Since this is still several days away however, uncertainty remains with the track and strength of the storm.
High pressure will once again settle back in for the start of next week leading to quiet weather. Yet another storm system could potentially bring significant wintry weather to NH for Tuesday Night into Wednesday.
