NH1 Weather Insider with Cyrena Arnold for Feb. 15, 2016
The arctic air is finally leaving the area, but behind it comes snow and much warmer temperatures.
On Monday we can expect highs in the mid 20's under mostly sunny skies. The clouds will be increasing by afternoon ahead of some snow that will move into the area by Monday evening. The snow will continue overnight with most areas seeing 1-4" before it changes over to sleet and freezing rain very early in the morning. This dividing line between the snow and the rain will move north in the early morning hours, changing all areas over to rain by mid to late morning.
The Tuesday morning commute could be slushy and slippery in places, so take extra caution and give yourself extra time on Tuesday morning.
Once everything changes to rain, we will see temperatures climb into the 40's, and we could see some windy conditions and local flooding as well. The rain will be heavy at times but will come to an end late Tuesday evening or early Wednesday morning.
Wednesday brings another day with highs in the 40's under partly sunny skies with the chance of an occasional flurry. By Thursday we are back into the 30's for the rest of the work week.
On Saturday, we could see another storm move into the area that is a lot like the one we are going to see on Tuesday; a storm that will start as snow and transition to rain.
Stay tuned with NH1 for the latest on this Tuesday snow, ice, and rain storm.
