Today we celebrate our Democracy as we exercise our right to vote. The weather could not be better for this time of year. After a frosty start, sunny skies will rule the day with high pressure overhead. Warming temperatures aloft will support high temperatures a full five to ten degrees milder then Monday on what should be the warmest day of the week with high climbing into the upper 50's and Lwr 60's. Skies will start off clear this evening, but clouds will be increasing overnight with lows in the 30's and Lwr 40's.
The overall weather pattern will is not conducive for any big storms yet, but will see air mass changes every couple days, with a threat of a few widely scattered showers. Wednesday will see a cold front will cross the the state with mostly cloudy skies. We should see a broken line of light showers move through at some point during the day, probably closer to the morning in the NW and in the afternoon in the S and E. For the most part models in good agreement keeping the low well to the south, which should bring an end to any showers during the afternoon Wednesday. Highs Wed will be on the warmer side, generally in the mid 40s N to mid 50s in southern New Hampshire.
NW flow returns for Thursday with cooler dry air. Upsloping winds should help to make a few more clouds in the mountains, but mainly sunny skies elsewhere with highs again in the mid 40s to mid 50s. The next cold front moves thru the region Friday but will likely just produce scattered rain or snow showers in the North country. Behind this front, a push of much colder air behind this for the start of the weekend. Plenty of sunshine can be expected this weekend with highs only in the mid 30s in the north country to Lwr-mid 40's in southern New Hampshire. Sunday looks to be mainly sunny and cool with highs in the 40s to near 50.
Dry conditions continue into Monday with a warming trend under a weak upper level ridge which will help to push temps back into the 50's.
