Weather: Quiet but cold (2/18/2019)

Planner for Tuesday February 19 2019

We had widespread fluff Monday morning, most of us got about 2-4″ with some isolated higher & lower amounts. The flakes were huge and added up quick! Luckily it was the kind of snow that could easily be moved and brushed off your car. Now that the snow is done, we get cold overnight. Northwest winds will continue around 5-15mph. As temps drop into the single digits on either side of zero, wind chills will hover around -25 to -10! That’s cold enough to give you frostbite in an hour or less. A wind chill advisory is in effect for most of northern New Hampshire. Layer up!

Tuesday will be a beautiful day, just a little chilly. Expect plenty of sunshine from start to finish with highs only in the teens & 20s. The wind will get lighter through the afternoon. Tuesday night, we’re quiet and cold again with lows between -5 & 5°. Wednesday, changes start to happen but it’ll be dry and mostly sunny while the sun is up. Highs will stay below normal in the 20s.

Wednesday night, light snow spreads over the entire northeast. Snow will gradually mix with sleet and freezing rain Thursday morning before switching to all plain rain Thursday afternoon. Early heads up, driving around Thursday, especially during the morning commute, will be slippery. We’re days away from this, but we may be able to squeeze out more than a few inches of snow before the switch over to a mix later in the morning. This is a quick moving storm that’s out of here by Friday morning. Friday looks mainly dry with more sun, highs will be in the mid 30s. Saturday looks quiet too before another warm, mix filled storm targets the area on Sunday. Stay tuned for more on that one.

Have a great week!
