Clayton Stiver's 7-day NH1 Forecast for Tuesday, Jan. 6, 2015
Source: NH1 Chief Meteorologist - NH1.com
A northwest flow of wind has brought the return of arctic air to the Granite State. The jet stream will remain well south of NH for some time keeping below normal temps in place for a while. Breezy conditions at times will make for sub-zero wind chill values across the higher elevations and for many during the nighttime hours and first thing in the morning. Thursday may feature very low temps for much of the state with extremely low wind chill values during the AM hours.
High pressure will crest over the region the next 24 hours, moving offshore Tuesday Afternoon. A clipper low pressure system will pass by to our south Tuesday possibly sparking a few flurries or snow showers. Little or no accumulation is expected although the mountains may pick up a couple inches. This low pressure system will drag a cold front through on Wednesday keeping a flurry or snow shower chance in place. Again, little or no accumulation except for a couple inches possible for the mountains.
Cold high pressure builds in from the west Wednesday Night and crests across the region Thursday. Low pressure will move east across Southern Quebec Friday dragging another cold front across the region. Again this could bring some snow showers but only the mountains look to receive any real accumulation.
High pressure settles in for the weekend making for quiet weather, but not much of a warming trend is expected.
