Clayton Stiver's Latest Forecast for the Next Winter Storm
NH1 Chief Meteorologist - NH1.com
Winter Storm WARNING in effect for Coos, Carroll, Belknap, Strafford, and Rockingham Counties through 6am Saturday. A Winter Weather ADVISORY is in effect for the rest of the Granite State for that same time period.
Tracking another snow storm for NH through Friday, possibly into early Saturday. This one will be no where near the intensity of the last storm, but regardless, several inches of snow accumulation will be possible making for slick roadways.
Look for light snow to go throughout much of the day Friday. There may be a bit of a break up in the snow coverage as we get into the afternoon. It appears most of the moderate to heavy snow will occur more across Maine so what we're talking about NH is a prolonged period of light snow. Snow should be done with by sunrise Saturday. I think as high as 7" could fall mainly from the Seacoast northward through eastern portions of NH up into the Great North Woods (the Winter Storm WARNING area). Lesser amounts as you get down to the Mass. border and southwestern NH more on the order of 2"-4" or 3"-5" (the Winter Weather ADVISORY area).
Temperatures will be around 32 by Friday Afternoon so this snowfall will be more of a wet snowfall. By Friday Night a strong surge of arctic air builds in with a northwest wind. This will drop temps into the single digits taking us into Saturday Morning. Winds will also become gusty Friday Night into Saturday Morning making for some blowing snow and wind chill values below 0.
