NH1 First Alert Forecast: On the cool side for the weekend...
A weak trough of low pressure approaches from the northwest as we start the weekend. This means a good deal of clouds will be around for the morning and the Monadnock region could start out with a quick rain shower and the higher elevations may see some wet snow mixed in, but by 9am its all basically going to dry up. As the disturbance moves through we'll continue to see a lot of clouds with breaks of sun throughout the day. After that High pressure will begin building in from the west.
A cyclonic northwest flow at the surface & aloft continues through the weekend keeping seasonably cool temperatures in place through Monday with highs in the 40's to near 50. A few scattered rain and snow showers are expected in the upslope favored mountain areas. A weak cold front will push through late Saturday night which will keep a lot of clouds in place. It will also bring a reinforcing push of cooler air for Sunday.
By Monday, the large broad surface & upper ridge across the midwest is shifting east into the Northeast. This will mean dry weather with sunny days and clear nights Monday through Wednesday. Milder temperatures return election day Tuesday with highs climbing well into the 50's and perhaps near 60 degrees. Basically dry conditions will endure for most of the rest of the week.
