NH1 Weather Insider with Cyrena Arnold for Feb. 7, 2016
We have had a very mild winter so far but it looks like things are going to change drastically over the next few days. From snow to below average temperatures, we will see it all this week.
The biggest concern at this time is snow that will be moving into the area on Monday and hanging around until Tuesday. This storm path is still evolving and we are keeping a close eye on it, but at this time it looks like areas on the coast near Boston could see over 6 inches of snow. In northern and central Massachusetts, as well as southern New Hampshire, we can expect 3-6" of snow. Areas further north will see much less. The storm totals will look similar to what they were with this past Friday's snow storm.
As for the rest of the week, a cold front moving through on Sunday afternoon will give us our last mild day of the week. Expect temperatures in the 40's during the day, dropping to the 20's overnight. On Monday, the snow will begin first to the south and fill in to the north as the day progresses with temperatures in the 20's. Expect windy conditions on Monday near Boston and along the seacoast. Temperatures will fall into the teens Monday evening into Tuesday.
Snow flurries will continue into Tuesday, so be careful making your way to the polls to vote in the Primary. Temperatures will reach the upper 20's to low 30's during the day, in the teens again overnight. The same temperatures will continue on Wednesday, along with a chance for more snow.
On Wednesday evening, an arctic cold front will drop into the area bringing with it the coldest temperatures so far of the season. Expect high's in the 20's on Thursday and Friday, low's in the single digits, and even colder on the weekend. High temperatures will struggle to get out of the teens over the weekend even through it will be clear and sunny. Weekend lows will be near zero, and a few degrees below zero further north.
