Clayton Stiver's Extended NH1 Forecast for Saturday, November 1, 2014
NH1 Chief Meteorologist - NH1.com
A strong area of low pressure will impact the area over the weekend bringing even colder air and the chance for some rain and snow. Any snow that falls would be mainly for the higher elevations and the North Woods however late Saturday Night into Sunday AM lower elevations may see rain mix with or even change over to some snow. At this time it appears the storm system will track far enough east of the Granite State that significant amounts of precipitation will fall away from us across Maine. The White Mountains may see a few inches of snow accumulation while little or no snow accumulation is expected elsewhere. If the track of the low shifts to the west however, higher amounts of rain and snow may be possible. Gusty winds will also be seen especially overnight Saturday into Sunday Morning. We will continue to monitor. High pressure will build back in for early next week with fairly seasonable air returning as we progress through the week. Don't forget Daylight Saving Time comes to an end Sunday at 2am so be sure to set those clocks back 1 hour before you go to bed Saturday Night. You'll get an extra hour of sleep! Also, it's not a bad idea to check the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.
