NH1 Weather Insider with Joe Joyce: Another Warm Spell Ahead
NH1 Chief Meteorologist
A cold start to the day with temps in the single digits and teens. After the recent warmth we have experienced, this winter chill may come as a bit of a shock to the system! Luckily, it won't be around very long. Sunshine with developing SW breezes will push temps back up into the 30's to near 40 degrees. An absolutely sparkling day and a wonderful day for hitting the slopes! A weak cold front will be sliding south and stalling over far northern New England tonight. This will come with more clouds Saturday night, along with SW winds..lows on Saturday night will not be as cold with temps holding in the 20's overnight. The front will remain stalled across the north country Sunday. Temperatures will be colder across the far north country, but most of New Hampshire will be on the milder side of the front Sunday with a mix of clouds and sun and highs climbing into the Lwr 50's! Just like that the feel of Spring returns!
An area of low pressure will approach Northern New England Monday morning bringing more clouds and the risk of a few passing showers or snow shower across the north country early in the morning. Expect partly sunny skies with highs in the 40's and lwr 50's by afternoon. As the low pulls away, the boundary separating the mild from the cool air will remain stalled over NH. That means much of New Hampshire will remain on the mild side of the front with partly sunny skies Tuesday and mild temps near 50 or above!
A wave of low pressure will ride up along this stalled front and track towards New England. There is still uncertainty in the exact track this low will take. Will it track NW of New England and bring a warmer wetter Wednesday, or will the low track along the south coast of New England later Wednesday into Wednesday night as a colder rain, which could end as snow early Thursday morning, or will the low track right over us? It remains to be seen. We can expect rain to develop Wednesday which will continue into Wednesday night, and likely end as some wet snow as it all pulls away. Colder drier air will follow in for the end of the week and for the first weekend of March with temps back into the Lwr 30's.
