Statewide Outdoor Sports Forecast

Ski NH Outdoor Sports Forecast

New Hampshire is home to more than thirty alpine and nordic ski areas. The mountains and lakes of the state provide a great location for summer and fall recreation as well as skiing and riding in the winter months. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy chairlift rides, zip-lines, mountain coasters, biking, hiking, golf, bungee trampolines, tubing, disc golf, water sports, and more! New Hampshire is a year-round wonderland for outdoor enthusiasts of all types.

Ski NH and Mount Washington Observatory have teamed up to offer this statewide Ski NH Outdoor Sports Forecast, which is updated each morning. Before you head outdoors, check the forecast!

Since 1932, the nonprofit Mount Washington Observatory has documented the mountain's famous extreme conditions, performed scientific research and educated the public about the science of weather and climate. Our location high atop New England gives us a unique perspective on New Hampshire's weather, especially here in ski country.

Forecast Discussion

A coastal low will slowly lift towards the Canadian Maritimes today. As it exits, moisture will rotate in on its backside bringing continued showers to the state, mainly this morning. By the afternoon, the bulk of the rain showers should be done and a bit of drier air will approach allowing for some partial clearing. Overnight, any remaining showers will taper and a clearing pattern will set up across the state. Most of the state should start out with of a bit of sunshine Saturday as a weak ridge of high pressure crests in. Over the course of the day, the ridge will slide offshore and a cold front will approach from the west. This will thicken and lower clouds during the day and a few rain showers will spread in from the west during the afternoon hours.

Overnight, the cold front will spread additional showers in across the state. Sunday, the front will slide offshore, however, a trailing trough of low pressure will bring variable amounts of clouds and a continued chance of showers for the northern half of the state. Sunday night into Monday a ridge of high pressure will build in over the state allowing clouds to thin out further and for any remaining showers to taper. Monday will remain on the cool side despite the added sunshine but by Tuesday, temperatures will make a rebound as the high slides east and a light return flow sets up.
