NH1 Weather Insider with Cyrena Arnold for March 21, 2016
After several days of anticipation, the Nor'easter is here! With the center of the low passing well off the Cape, and dry air to our north, we are seeing a very tight gradient of snow totals. A difference of only 50 miles means the difference between no snow and several inches. If the path of this storm shifts ever so slightly west, snow totals will rise. A change to the east, and much of the state will see no snow. This is a very complex event!
Snow begins in the very early morning hours and will continue through the morning commute, eventually tapering off from southwest to northeast by noon. Snow fall rates will near an inch per hour in heavier bands. Snow totals are expect to be as follows:
After the snow ends, temperatures will rise into the 30's and 40's and we will end the day with sunny skies.
We then enter a period of unstable weather with mild temperatures in the 40's and 50's for the rest of the week with chances of evening or overnight showers (even flurries in the colder locations). By the weekend, high pressure returns to the area and we will warm up into the 50's under mostly sunny skies.
