Extended NH1 Forecast for Saturday, Dec. 19, 2014

High pressure remains locked in place through the weekend and lingers into the start of next week. This creates a quiet and seasonable weather pattern. Temperatures will be around or just below normal for this time of the year, most areas seeing overnight chills in the 20s. A coastal system, Sunday could lead to some snow showers for the Seacoast, but just an inch or less is expected at this time.

Our next weather maker moves through on Tuesday. Weak in nature, but this system brings a spread of light precipitation across the Granite State. Cold temps at the surface could allow for light snow. The low will push a warm front through however leading to a southerly wind and warmer air building in. As it appears now, this will allow for a change to sleet and freezing rain, and eventually all rain. Again, it appears at this time that amounts with this system will be light.

A stronger area of low pressure looks to develop and strengthen to our west for Christmas Eve. This setup has the potential to bring heavy rain to the Granite State along with a surge of mild air and gusty winds. These conditions could linger into Christmas Day Morning, then gusty westerly winds bring dry air in to clear the skies out throughout the day.

The Winter Solstice is Sunday, Dec. 21 at 6:03 PM EST

Saturday: Mostly sunny, highs 29-33. Sunday: Mostly cloudy, slight chance for snow showers Seacoast, highs 31-35. Monday: Sun and clouds, highs 32-36. Tuesday: Cloudy with a chance of light snow, changing to light sleet and light freezing rain, then light rain, highs 34-38. Christmas Eve: Cloudy with rain likely, windy, highs 42-46.
