Today will feature morning snow across the area before a transition to rain and mixed precipitation this afternoon. The transition to rain is already well underway along the coast as temps warm above freezing with SE winds. Inland, however, is a different story. As those SE winds try to move away from the coast, they encounter a bubble of cold air “dammed” against the higher terrain. This bubble of cold air will keep precip types frozen into this afternoon even as warm air rushes in aloft. As a result, the foothills and mountains can expect a period of sleet and freezing rain to follow this morning’s snow before precip tapers off into showers this afternoon.
High temps will range from 30 in the north to 50 in SE NH.
