NH1 First Alert Forecast: Still cool for now
A weak trough of Low pressure will cross the region early Sunday and that will continue to create a lot of clouds and even a brief light shower or sprinkle around daybreak in the western part of the state. Once it moves off the coast the sky will begin to clear for the afternoon but it will remain on the cool side along with rather breezy conditions. Highs will be in the 40s state-wide. Overnight the winds slowly relax and with a mainly clear sky the temperatures will fall back between 25-35 degrees as High pressure begins to build in from the west.
By Monday, the large broad surface & upper High will start slipping to our south. This will mean a good deal of sunshine, but we'll still be on the cool side of things. Milder temperatures will return election day Tuesday with highs climbing well into the 50's to near 60 degrees. Unfortunately this looks to only last for 1 day. A lot of clouds return for Wednesday with the threat of a shower and highs dropping back to near or just below normal.
In the long range, colder air looks to work its way in for the end of the week and the start of the weekend and it also looks to become somewhat unsettled. There's also the possibility of some wet snow Saturday, but we'll fine tune that part of the forecast as we get closer to it.
