NH1 First Alert Weather: Milder weather arrives after snow and rain
Tuesday starts off cold with low temperatures in the single digits in most places. Any early sun will fade as clouds thicken and increase. A light southerly wind will gradually bring milder air into the Granite State, but it's a fairly slow process, and we'll have to go through a weather system before we completely warm up.
Light snow is possible in western New Hampshire as early as 4 p.m. This snow will spread east during the early evening. At the same time, temperatures will be rising in southern and eastern New Hampshire. As a result, mostly rain is expected south and east of Manchester. However, farther west and north, some snow is likely. From the Lakes Region northward, some accumulation is likely before a later change to rain. In the mountains, a change to rain may never occur, with some sleet and freezing rain in spots early Wednesday.
Any early showers Wednesday will depart with a partly sunny sky developing. Temperatures will rise to near 50 degrees in southern New Hampshire on Wednesday, 40s north.
Another round of rain will move through on Thursday, but temperatures could rise a couple of more degrees if the rain ends soon enough.
The next cold front comes in on Friday – with much colder air following for the weekend.
