We hve had a couple of light sprinkles here today, but other than that, it has been quiet.
Through this Evening: Rain and snow showers will continue ahead of an arriving surface cold front with regional radar mosaic showing an area of showers over eastern NY poised to cross the southern half of our forecast area which really hasn't seen much of any rain yet. Further north and east there are some areas of dense fog... which will continue for a few more hours before improving this evening. 8 pm temperatures will range from the mid 30s over the mountains to the lower 40s in the foothills with upper 40s and even some lower 50s over southern NH sneaking up the ME coast. Webcams across northern areas reveal light snow accumulations with generally wet main roads...but there will likely remain some slick travel on the back roads.

Tonight: Prefrontal showers continue through about 11pm before pushing offshore as the surface cold front crosses the region with westerly winds shifting northwest and dry advection developing. Robust cold advection overnight should keep most areas mixed with some gusts at 20-30 mph will be possible overnight...especially along the hilltops. The drying airmass should allow for partial clearing downwind of the mountains with upslope clouds and some snow showers further north. Consensus lows in the mid 20s north to lower/mid 30s south look good.

High pressure will build towards the region on Friday with northwest flow continuing across northern New England. This high will crest overhead Friday night with the short term forecast period remaining very quiet weather-wise. Expect highs in the upper 40s to around 50 on Friday under partly to mostly cloudy skies.

Friday Night: The lower half of the troposphere will continue to dry out as high pressure arrives from the west. Given this...and the likelihood of any significant cloudiness associated with the weekend system just beginning to arrive by daybreak...the scenario looks good for radiational cooling. Statistical guidance supports teens in the mountains with 20s to the south and east.

Regional Synopsis

A cold front will pass offshore this evening with much drier air moving into the area overnight and for the day on Friday under strengthening northwesterly winds. High pressure remains in control through Saturday afternoon before low pressure moving into the Great Lakes redevelops over the Gulf of Maine Saturday night. This system will bring snow changing to rain across southern New Hampshire and the coast of Maine with more snow across the foothills and mountains before a potential changeover. Precipitation tapers off on Sunday with northwest winds and milder temperatures for Monday of next week.

Another round of scattered rain showers this evening ahead of an approaching cold front. Wind shift to the northwest advects a cooler and drier airmass for Friday with a blend of sun and clouds. Active weather on Saturday into early Sunday, with a wintry mix across the interior and higher terrain, with a cold rain elsewhere. Drier weather returns Sunday into Monday with near seasonable temperatures. Unsettled weather may return heading into the middle of next week.


* Scattered showers along with gusty southwest winds ahead of an
approaching cold front.

* Cold front clears the coast during the overnight hours, followed
by a change of wind direction to the northwest, advecting a drier
airmass into the region.


* Unsettled Sat into early Sun. Wintry mix changing to rain
across the interior. Light accumulation expected across the
higher terrain. Elsewhere, will be a cold rain. Gusty winds
at times.

* Dry weather returns Sun/Mon, with near to above normal

* Could see a return of unsettled weather in the Tue/Wed
timeframe, but confidence in the details remains low.

Manchester NH:  3/23 - 8:03 AM

An active pattern returns with the first of a few storm systems moving through Thursday ahead of the potential for rain, mix, and even snow this weekend.

Scattered showers are likely off and on Thursday and Thursday night with some mixing far north first thing this morning. Rain could be steady at times during the day, but not heavy in most locations. Highs in the 40s to low 50s.

Lingering clouds on Friday with cooler high temperatures in the 40s and a breeze with gusts 25-30 mph.

The next system moves in Saturday with the potential for rain, wintry mix, and even some snow. The heaviest bands will pass through late Saturday. Computer guidance suggests it will be plowable snow for most areas north of Concord. Lingering snow/ mix will slowly end from south to north through Sunday. This active pattern appears to persist into next week.
