Some may have woken up to the sight of a few snow flurries this morning, but these quickly dissipated through the day as a clearing pattern set up for the rest of today and is expected to continue into Friday. Clouds will be steadily decreasing giving way to sunshine this afternoon and evening. An area of high pressure will build into the region midday on Friday, allowing for generally clear skies. But looking ahead toward the weekend, another round of snowfall might be in store!

During the early morning hours on Saturday, a disturbance to our south will work its way up the coast and merge with a Clipper system that is expected to swing through via the Great Lakes. Right now, the bulk of the precipitation looks to be located offshore, but snow is likely, particularly in northern NH. Temperatures in southern NH may be warm enough for a wintry mix of precipitation to fall including snow, sleet, and freezing rain.

With the bulk of the storm looking to pass through Saturday evening into Sunday morning, precipitation will last through much of Sunday before finally tapering off early Monday morning when high pressure returns for the beginning of the week. No word on amounts just yet, but we’re monitoring the latest model runs!
