Clayton Stiver's 7-day NH1 Forecast for Tuesday, Dec. 16, 2014
Source: NH1 Chief Meteorologist - NH1.com
High pressure will shift east to the Canadian Maritimes Tuesday. Fair skies hang on during the day Tuesday. The next chance of precipitation comes Tuesday Night into Wednesday as a wave of low pressure and cold front track through. This system will be weak and lack any abundant moisture so no substantial accumulations are expected. Mainly rain is anticipated but some pockets of freezing rain will be possible across the Upper Valley, Mountains, and Great North Woods.
High pressure will settle back in for the end of the week bringing fair skies, but a north to northwest flow of wind and a dip in the Jetstream will bring a return to normal or just below normal temps. Those northerly winds could be gusty.
We will have to start watching closely the forecast for Sunday as a few computer models are hinting at a possible coastal storm/Nor'Easter that might have the potential to bring wintry weather to the area. It's still way too early to make any calls on exactly what we'll see and how much, but if you have travel plans, you'll certainly want to pay close attention to this forecast over the next several days.
