NH1 Weather Insider with meteorologist Cyrena Arnold for Dec. 28, 2015

Believe it or not, winter is finally here! Temperatures are going to struggle to get out of the low 30's on Monday despite the sunshine, and wind gusts into the 20's will make it feel even cooler, with wind chills in the teens and 20's thought the area. Overnight, temperatures will fall into the teens and 20's as the winds calm ahead of our first snow storm of the season.
Snow begins in the early morning hours and we will see accumulations range from 3-6" for most of the area. Snow will change to sleet by mid-morning in southern locations and around noon for most of New Hampshire. Sleet will change to rain by the early afternoon for southern locations and by mid to late afternoon for northern locations, melting much of the snow that fell in the morning.
The storm moves out of the area late Tuesday evening, giving us a break from the rain and snow on Wednesday with highs in the upper 30's. Partly cloudy skies will turn cloudy as a second, smaller storm approaches Wednesday evening into Thursday morning, providing rain for most locations and some snow for northern New Hampshire.
New Years Day and the rest of the New Year weekend will be beautiful with mostly sunny skies, highs in the 30's, lows in the 20's.
