Statewide Outdoor Sports Forecast

Ski NH Outdoor Sports Forecast

New Hampshire is home to more than thirty alpine and nordic ski areas. The mountains and lakes of the state provide a great location for summer and fall recreation as well as skiing and riding in the winter months. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy chairlift rides, zip-lines, mountain coasters, biking, hiking, golf, bungee trampolines, tubing, disc golf, water sports, and more! New Hampshire is a year-round wonderland for outdoor enthusiasts of all types.

Ski NH and Mount Washington Observatory have teamed up to offer this statewide Ski NH Outdoor Sports Forecast, which is updated each morning. Before you head outdoors, check the forecast!

Since 1932, the nonprofit Mount Washington Observatory has documented the mountain's famous extreme conditions, performed scientific research and educated the public about the science of weather and climate. Our location high atop New England gives us a unique perspective on New Hampshire's weather, especially here in ski country.

Forecast Discussion

The warm, moist flow from the southwest will continue ahead of a cold front approaching from the west today. This flow will keep temperatures above normal as well keep conditions feeling muggy today and this evening as the front approaches. Instability ahead of the front will allow for scattered showers and thunderstorms around the state today with favorable conditions aloft for a few cells to become severe this afternoon or early this evening. Severe thunderstorms have a potential for sudden and strong gusts of wind, small hail, and heavy downpours. As the front passes overnight, a line of widespread rain and scattered thunderstorms will pass through the state. As the front slides offshore early on Wednesday, convective activity will taper and a clearing pattern will set up for the afternoon as a ridge of high pressure builds in. Despite sunshine returning on Wednesday, a cooler airflow behind the cold front will bring temperatures down to more seasonable readings around the state.

From Wednesday night through Friday, the high remains in place overhead allowing for fair skies. While the clear and calm conditions will allow for fog on a nightly basis, this will quickly burn off daily to allow for sunny days ahead. Temperatures and RH levels should remain comfortable on Thursday but Friday will likely see a return of warm and muggy conditions as a return flow sets up. The next round of unsettled weather will come Friday night into Saturday as a cold front approaches from the northwest. This will spread rain showers and thunderstorms in over the state. Behind this, a Canadian high will build for the start of next week bringing fair skies as temperatures cool to more fall-like readings around the region.
