Last update: 12/04 - 4:57 PM

Overall a nice end to an early Dec day across much of the area. Winds will continue to diminish early, becoming light and variable for much of the night. Winds will increase from the south for the latter half of the night as a warm front begins lifting across the area. Before any warmer air works into the region, temps will drop into the mid 20s tonight. Center of the associated low will be well to the west, so this should pull good warm air to quickly begin warming in the early morning hours.
Another rather warm day is set for Monday as the warm front lifts north of the area. Winds from the South will help bring some of that warm air in. Believe this should also warm the CT Valley pretty quick given its poleward orientation, as well as much of southern NH up the interior of ME and coast. Highs on Monday will reach the mid 40s. 
Clouds move in Monday night ahead of the next system. Some very early showers or drizzle may form Monday night here in Southern NH, but the steadier rain arrives Tuesday and hangs around into Wednesday night. Models suggest a weak wave of low pressure may form along an approaching cold front on Wednesday. This would keep the precipitation over the region through Wednesday evening. Temperatures will continue to be mild for this time of the year. Some lower 50s can be expected over southern areas on Tuesday.

Manchester NH12/04 - 8:51 AM

Sun returns for Sunday, but it comes with a chilly breeze. Pleasant conditions for the start of the work week, with more wet weather likely Tuesday into Wednesday.

Early flurries and snow showers across the White Mountains and Great North Woods. All of us will break into some sunshine in the coming hours. The winds turn back to the northwest for Sunday bringing in colder air again. Highs only reach the 30s to near 40 degrees.

Monday will be sunny with highs 42-48. Lighter winds will make for a pleasant start to the work week. A few clouds will drift in late.

The first of two systems arrives Tuesday. This feature looks to bring mainly some showers, with a few wet flakes far north and up in elevation. The second system will bring a steadier rain on Wednesday, before clearing arrives for late week.
