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

A ridge of high pressure will crest over the region today as a trough of low pressure approaches from the west for tonight into Sunday. The cresting ridge will allow for mild temperatures and decreasing winds over the course of the day Saturday. Skies will allow for a bit of sunshine early in the day, however, as the trough approaches, clouds are expected to once again thicken and lower this afternoon. As the trough approaches, a few overrunning showers might reach the north of the state by the afternoon but the bulk of the showers will hold off for the rest of the state until the overnight hours. Sunday, the trough will move through bringing continued clouds and a chance of upslope showers through the day. Downslope areas will see mostly cloudy skies at the start of the day and possibly a few showers straying towards the south, but generally, the flow will allow for drying pattern that will result in partly sunny conditions by the afternoon.

Sunday night into Monday, the north will continue to see upslope clouds and showers while the south will continue a clearing pattern as a ridge of high pressure slowly builds up from the southwest. The ridge will finally build far enough to the north to allow for a clearing pattern statewide Monday night into Tuesday. As the ridge crests in on Tuesday, the state will see fair skies and milder temperatures returning. Tuesday night into Wednesday, clouds will start to once again be on the increase as an upper level trough approaches. A cold front from the trough will be approaching on Wednesday and with it, showers along with cooler temperatures on its backside.
