NH1 Weather Insider with Joe Joyce: NICE WEEKEND, SPRING WARMTH AHEAD

NH1 Chief Meteorologist

Another cold start to the day on Friday with temps in the single digits and teens. Temperatures are starting off below zero across the north country from the White Mountains north. A powerful storm is tracking hundreds of miles south of New England today, but clouds have spread into New Hampshire today along with NE winds. Winds will be gusty at the coast today with even the potential for a few scattered snow showers or flurries at beach. Winds will be much lighter inland. Clouds will be the rule today, but across the NW interior of New Hampshire breaks of sun will be more common with the potential for some partial sunshine inland away from the coast. Highs will be climbing into the Lwr-mid 30's by the afternoon.

High pressure slides back in for the weekend with seasonal temperatures in the 30's and lwr 40's. Sunshine will fade to some increasing afternoon clouds later Saturday. A weak low will track from the Great Lakes to the Mid-Atlantic and off the Carolinas early Sunday. A deck of clouds will spread into New Hampshire with temperatures in the 20's. These clouds will depart Sunday and give way to increasing sunshine and slightly warmer temperatures in the Lwr 40's.

An upper level ridge will shift east and become established on the eastern seaboard with plenty of sunshine and warming temperatures. SW winds will push temperatures well into the 50's to near 60. By Wednesday, temperatures will spike in the 60's with a very mild and balmy feel to the air for early March standards. A cold front will be pushing through Thursday with more clouds, slightly cooler air in the 50's. Moisture will be coming up out of the Gulf of Mexico and be directed into the Northeast. The rain will ride up along this stalled front over New England. This will give us our next chance of showers later Thursday into Thursday night.

While there will be occasional cooler shots of air this month. There will be more mild air than cold air for the rest of March. There will be some active weather to watch by the end of next week and beyond, but the chances of any big snow storm are becoming less and less. I can not completely rule out it snowing in New Hampshire again. It will likely snow in the mountains again. But for most of us...once this cold air lifts out...Winter is pretty much finished!
