Clayton Stiver's Ice Forecast for Tuesday Night and Early Wednesday
Source: NH1 Chief Meteorologist - NH1.com
Winter Weather Advisory in effect from the National Weather Service through 11am Wednesday for all of the Granite State with the exception of the Seacoast (I-95 and points east).
The Seacoast may see a little rain/snow mix early on tonight but for the most part, this system brings mostly rain for you. Elsewhere, things start off as light snow, mixing with and changing over to sleet and freezing rain once we get past 10pm tonight. The transition will happen from south to north as warmer air builds in aloft (look for that pink line on the radar). That warmer air aloft will eventually make it to the surface, and eventually, many folks will see temps above freezing once we get to 4am, and certainly thereafter. At this point most of us are talking plain rain.
For ice, generally 0.10" or less with higher amounts across the Mountains. Only trace amounts south and east of Manchester.
The time period for the slickest of road conditions looks to be between 10pm and 4am. I think by the time we get to the Wednesday Morning commute, with temps above freezing for many, and just rain, things become primarily on the wet side. There still could be some isolated slick spots though. Stay safe everyone!
