NH1 Weather Insider with meteorologist Bill Gile for February 29, 2016
An area of low pressure will move across the northern U.S. border today bringing more mild temperatures to the region, but it will also bring clouds and the risk of a few passing rain showers in the mid-late morning, but the far north could see some icy conditions during the morning commute before it warms up. Expect partly sunny skies with highs again in the 40's and low 50's by afternoon. As the low pulls away, cooler air will settle in for Tuesday as another cold front passes by in the morning.
The midweek stretch brings our next threat of precipitation as low pressure heads toward New England. There is still a little bit of uncertainty in the exact track this low will take, but it does look like it will either move right over northern NH or pass just to our northwest. Either way this will mean rain for the state, but it does look to start as snow from the mountains northward and a wet/snow freezing mix in the central portion of the state from the Lakes region to the Upper valley that would create slippery conditions during the morning commute before changing to rain. The southern areas may start with a brief mix but then quickly turn to rain by daybreak. The storm will also bring some gusty winds that could reach 30-35mph along with a few periods of heavy rain at times. As the storm passes we may see a short change to wet snow late Wednesday night before it ends. Colder drier air will follow in for the end of the week and for the first weekend of March with temps back into the Lower 30's.
