WEATHER UPDATE: Winter strikes back!
Rapid fire changes in the weather are ahead, and it is all just beginning.
After a rainy damp cool day Saturday, one low is departing, taking some tropical moisture along with it. Now, a strong Clipper low is digging in from the Great Lakes and will track towards Southern New England tonight!
Snow will be developing after midnight and becoming heavier during the pre-dawn hours of Sunday. By dawn Sunday, the low will be pulling off the coast and intensifying into a much stronger storm. Snow will briefly be heavy from 4-8 a.m. Sunday. Early morning travel Sunday could be hazardous, with some slippery travel and whiteout conditions with gusty winds.
Snow will quickly be tapering off Sunday morning. Lingering light snow will be possible at the Seacoast through the midday.
Because of the quick and short nature of this burst of snow, snow accumulations will be held to minimal amounts. Southern New Hampshire will have the best chance of seeing of 1-3 inches of snow, with the heaviest snow falling closer to the Massachusetts border and towards the coastline.
A dry Sunday afternoon is expected with skies becoming partly cloudy. As the storm pulls away, strong gusty winds will quickly be developing out of the northwest.
A wind advisory is in effect Sunday morning through 9 p.m., where winds will be frequently gusting to 35-50 mph. These winds will be directing in a blast of cold arctic air which will keep temperatures in the 20s and lower 30s and windchills feeling in the teens Sunday.
Pretty extreme for early April! But wait there is more! Did we mention another chance of snow on Monday? More details on NH1 and NH1.com!
