NH1 7-Day Forecast for Friday, March 20, 2015
Source: Clayton Stiver
Spring officially starts on Friday at 6:45pm Eastern Time. It sure won't feel like it across the Granite State as highs will only be in the low to mid 30s.
High pressure builds overhead and makes its way offshore as we get into Friday Afternoon. This will allow breezes to calm down quite a bit. Late Friday Afternoon into Friday Night a coastal storm looks to track well to our south and east but it still may graze southern NH with some snow showers. Little or no snow accumulation is expected.
An arctic cold front will track through Saturday PM bringing a reinforcing shot of cold air. This front may also spark some snow showers for the Mountains and Great North Woods and a few rain showers for central and southern NH. The Mountains and Great North Woods could see 1"-3" of snow Saturday PM so if you're traveling in this part of the state Saturday PM, be mindful of some slick roadways.
High pressure will slowly build back in for the end of the weekend into the start of next week leading to fair skies. While the temps be well below normal to start next week, they will modify back to seasonable levels by the middle of the week. A storm system approaches Thursday but temps look to be well warm enough that we're just talking rain showers.
