DAYS 1-5 (FEBRUARY 13-17)
A storm system passing through the region today started as rain/mix coast that went over to snow eastern coastal areas and rain southern coastal areas before that rain/snow line progressed northward to the MA/NH border in the pre-dawn, and while some southern NH areas are still seeing flakes now the transition will be completed shortly and we’re looking at rain for all, which ends west to east by later today. Any standing water or slush will freeze solid overnight as a shot of modified arctic air arrives and will be with us for a couple of days. Moderating temperatures will occur the middle and end of what is a 3-day weekend for many, with only a few snow showers Sunday as a weak front passes through the region.
TODAY: Overcast with rain except some lingering sleet/snow into mid morning southern NH with little additional accumulation expected there.
Highs 36-43. Wind E-SE 5-15 MPH, few higher gusts especially coastal areas.
TONIGHT: Clearing. Rapid freeze-up of any standing water / wet surfaces. Lows 13-20. Wind NW 5-15 MPH, higher gusts.
FRIDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 23-30. Wind NW 10-20 MPH, higher gusts. Wind chill near 10 at times.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Clear. Lows 0-7. Wind NW 5-15 MPH. Wind chill below 0 at times.
SATURDAY: Sunny. Highs 23-30. Wind variable up to 10 MPH.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 13-20 evening, rising overnight. Wind SW under 10 MPH.
SUNDAY: Variably cloudy. Chance of snow showers. Highs 35-42. Wind SW up to 10 MPH.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 20-27. Wind W 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY (PRESIDENTS DAY): Mostly sunny. Highs 35-42. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
DAYS 6-10 (FEBRUARY 18-22)
Current indications are for a minor system passing through later February 18 into early February 19 with no major impact, with rain/mix showers favored. Fair weather follows for a couple days with the next unsettled weather threat coming at the end of the period. Temperatures near to above normal.
DAYS 11-15 (FEBRUARY 23-27)
Still low confidence here as we may have to watch energy from 2 branches of jet stream energy for potential interaction. Will give this late February period another look tomorrow but for now will only say there are 1 or 2 storm threats in here.
