NH1 FIRST ALERT WEATHER: A couple of damp days

Source: Meteorologist Bill Gile

Low pressure will slowly be moving toward Northeast today bumping into High pressure to our north and east. This Low will gradually slip to the south of New England through tomorrow as it makes its way out to sea for Tuesday morning.

Sunday will feature cloudy skies across the southern 2/3rds of the state, while north of the mountains partly sunny skies will prevail most of the day. Occasional and generally light showers will fall across southern NH, but as they try to develop and move in from the west, they'll have a tendency to dry out some as the moisture pushes into the High pressure that will be relatively close by. When you're in a drought situation and computer modelling beyond 18-24 hours tries to insist that steady rains will move in, it's always smart to lend credence to the saying; "Dry begets dry!" So, I still expect some scattered showers and drizzle to occur through tomorrow, but not any real significant, widespread and beneficial rainfall. However, that being said there could be an isolated thunderstorm that pops up during the day, which would bring some localized heavier, but brief rainfall. Overall, the day won't be a washout, just some wet times and some dry times. High temperatures will generally be in the low to mid 70s south and upper 70s to near 80 in the sun up north.

Unsettled weather will continue into Monday. Scattered Showers, drizzle and possible storms will be around, with temperatures in the 70s.

Improvement will follow for the rest of the week. Tuesday will be a transition day with increasing sunshine and highs in the upper 70s.

Wednesday looks to be one of those top 10 nearly perfect weather days with low humidity, lots of sunshine, and highs in the low 80s.

Heat and humidity will return for Thursday and Friday, with highs in the upper 80s to low 90s. Watch for possible thunderstorms late Friday

Have a great weekend!
