NH1 Weather Insider with Joe Joyce: Tuesday February 9, 2016
NH1 Chief Meteorologist
Primary Tuesday has arrived across New Hampshire! Expect slippery side roads early in the morning, but conditions will be rapidly improving as the morning progresses. I expect a mostly dry, but mostly cloudy day Tuesday with highs in the 20's to near 30 by the afternoon with a light NE wind. Another wave of low pressure will track south of New England Tuesday, but this one will be weaker and far enough a way to spare us any precipitation. The upper low will be pushing through on Wednesday bringing more clouds along with the risk of a few scattered snow snow showers. Thursday will have Partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies as a cold front will cross the region. This front may trigger a few scattered snow showers as well. I would not be too concerned about any of it quite frankly. Minor accums of a coating to 1" of snow would be possible in any heavier snow shower. Gusty winds will pick up Thursday afternoon with a charge of colder air fro Friday where highs will fall back into the Lwr-mid 20's.
It will get a bit more interesting late Friday night as another little clipper low will dive out of Canada and redevelop off the coast of New England into a stronger storm off the coast Saturday morning. There will be a chance of early morning light snow on Saturday. As the low pulls away, strong winds from the NNW will develop and usher in the coldest air of the winter right into New England! Highs will be in the single digits and teens. Wind chills will feel below zero. Temperatures will be below zero for the overnight lows. By Sunday, temps will struggle to reach 12 degrees! Winds will remain active all weekend adding the bone chilling cold. This valentine's day...think of what you can do to keep your honey nice, warm and comfy from the bitter winter chill!
