MIKE HADDAD: Thank you very much for joining us. Stormwatch 9 Weather on the Web. Here we are moving to the mid part of the month of April and there could be some winter to be had before the week is over. Bright and mild on Wednesday. Early clouds giving way to partial sun and temperatures running a little bit above the norm. Cooler though right along the coast. Then some light rain, mostly in western and southwestern New Hampshire during Thursday from midday into the afternoon. Then Thursday night into Friday night, the plot thickens a little bit, just enough cold air at upper levels of the atmosphere.

So when the rain moves in and begins to intensify, it will likely change over to some wet snow, especially in areas north and west of the Queen City, and most of the accumulation in the higher elevations. But we'll be watching it very closely. Overnight tonight, partly to mostly cloudy skies, could be a sprinkle. 30s and lower 40s will do it. During the day tomorrow, a storm in the upper Midwest. Moisture in the Deep South will begin to converge in the Ohio Valley. And the next stop late Thursday and especially Thursday night into Friday, right on top of New Hampshire.

So for Thursday, midday, early mid-afternoon, some steady light rain begins to fill in. Hanover, Lebanon, down through about St. Peterborough, Jaffrey range, point west, maybe a couple of light showers by late in the afternoon from the lakes region points south and east. Then once we get into later Thursday evening into Friday, and that rain intensifies, sun has set, temperatures just cold enough, we see a chilly rain south and east of Concord, but just to the north and west some mixing of rain and wet snow. In the higher elevations, going over to all wet snow, where we could see over 5 or 6 inches of wet snow between Thursday night and Friday evening.

Same story for Friday night, could be a couple of leftover mixed showers early on Saturday. And once that moves on out of here, the rest of the weekend is looking good. Speaking of good, look at your Wednesday. Partly sunny skies, near 50 at the coast. But well inland, upper 50s to the lower to mid 60s. Then there is that big change by the end of the week. By the weekend, we begin to dry out. Early next week, looks dry and seasonable on Monday, maybe a few showers Tuesday.
