NH1 Weather Insider with Cyrena Arnold for Feb. 22, 2016
It's a beautiful start to our week, whether it's vacation week for you or not. We have a sunny Monday on tap with temperatures in the mid to upper 30's to the north, maybe seeing the 40's to the south. Overnight, temperatures will get cold into the teens and single digits, but we will warm up again to the mid 30's on Tuesday under sunny skies with increasing clouds through the afternoon.
Changes roll in late Tuesday evening as snow begins from south to north in the overnight hours, and we expect most places will see 1-3". This snow will change to sleet and freezing rain during the early morning hours, very similar to that last storm we had roll through last week. Now, this freezing rain will continue until near noon, especially in low areas and valleys where the cold air will take longer to move out of the area. By afternoon, all areas should see rain as temperatures climb into the mid 30's.
The rain continues through Thursday with highs in the upper 40's and low 50's. On Friday, we see the precipitation move out of the area, giving us a few flurries as it departs to our east. Otherwise, Friday is shaping up to be a nice mostly sunny day with temperatures in the 30's. On Saturday, temperatures will be in the 30's again with lows in the teens.
If you're getting sick of the warm weather and rain, there is good news coming up. Long term forecasts indicate we are in store for another shot of unseasonable cold air sometime in the next two weeks. Maybe winter isn't quite over just yet.
