We are going to be in a rather active weather pattern for the upcoming week as the boundary between mild and cold air will be setting up right over New England. This does not bode well for sun lovers this week as that boundary will be wobbling north and south with waves of energy moving along it bringing rounds of precipitation. Most of the activity will be light, but there will be a couple of stronger systems coming along in that flow, especially Tuesday and Friday.
A cold front will drop down across the region by midday that will trigger a morning flurry /light snow shower from the Lakes region northward, but to the south it will only create some cloudiness along with windy conditions. This front will also stall to the south of the area during the afternoon and will begin lifting back at us Sunday night. As that happens snow and rain showers will begin developing toward midnight and spreading northward. As this precipitation bumps into the colder air there will be areas of mainly all snow through the Monadnock region to the Upper valley and the Lakes regions into Monday morning that will at the very least create slippery travel conditions on untreated roads with temperatures below freezing. Any snow Monday morning will turn to rain showers for the afternoon except for the far north.
A more organized Low pressure center will move through Tuesday bringing primarily rain with it. However, north of the Lakes region snow will be mixed in with the rain. Rain and snow showers taper off during Wednesday and then Thursday should basically be a dry day.
Another storm system will move through for Friday, perhaps bringing some heavy rain, so we will need to watch that one as it could help lead to small rivers and streams coming up to bank-full combined with snowmelt during the week.
