Weekly Outlook: February 17-23, 2020

The active pattern we’ve been in a for a few weeks has left, and now we’re in a much less active one, and it will actually feel like February.

A weak cold front crosses the region this morning, but you’ll barely notice it. We’ll still have sunshine and mild temperatures. That won’t last long though, as low pressure will move from the Great Lakes today into the St. Lawrence Valley on Tuesday. This will result in some rain around here on Tuesday. However, it will still be on the chilly side when the precipitation moves in by early afternoon (it is February after all), so we’ll likely see some snow to start, mainly from the Merrimack Valley into southern New Hampshire. We’re not expecting much accumulation, mainly an inch or so, maybe 2 inches in parts of central New Hampshire, before a change to rain occurs during the afternoon. The rain ends during the evening, as the storm pulls away, then skies start to clear out late at night.

This is not going to be a big snowstorm, and the rain will wash away a lot of it during the afternoon and evening. Image provided by WeatherBell.

After that, the forecast for the rest of the week is very easy. High pressure builds in for Wednesday with sunshine and cooler conditions. Thursday and Friday will be even colder with sunshine, then temperatures start to moderate over the weekend with conditions remaining dry.

High pressure slowly moves from the Northern Plains on Wednesday to the Mid-Atlantic states by Sunday, keeping us dry for several days. Loop provided by Pivotal Weather.
