Mount Washington Valley Forecast

Thursday, April 24, 2014
4:34 AM

Lingering low-level moisture on the backside of a departing low will allow for continued clouds few additional light rain showers this morning before trending towards clearing later today. As the low departs today, it will deepen generating a tight pressure gradient that will bring about high winds with many locations seeing gusts as high as 50 mph. As the low departs overnight, a ridge of high pressure will build in allowing for skis to clear and winds to gradually decrease. Friday the high crests in allowing for fair conditions as temperatures moderate, winds continue to decrease, and skies remain generally sunny.

Friday night into Saturday, a pair of lows will approach the state; one from the Great Lakes and tracking up the St Lawrence River valley with the secondary low moving northeast from the Ohio River Valley towards the gulf of Maine. The one-two punch of the lows will bring rain to the state for Saturday, possibly becoming heavy at times. As the lows move northeast, they will come together and start to form a cutoff low on Sunday over the Gulf of Maine before eventually stalling out over the Canadian Maritimes for the state of the week. High pressure will then start to build in from the west. However, the cutoff low is a wildcard, if it remains closer to NH, it will continue to rotate in clouds and moisture for the start of the week ahead. On the other hand, if it is nudged just a bit more east, fair skies and moderating temperatures will return.
