NH1 Chief Meteorologist
Ahh! A nice day to look forward to! A warm front is pushing through early this morning with a few clouds. Skies will become partly sunny and we will find ourselves in the warm sector under a WSW wind during the afternoon. An upper level ridge will pump unseasonal warmth into New Hampshire. Highs will be climbing into the Lwr-mid 60's during the afternoon. Temperatures will average about 10 degrees above the norm. More clouds will be in the mountains and north country which will help to keep highs in the 50's. The warm air may fall just short of reaching you. A cold front will sag south and stall over the forecast area Wed night...and low pressure is forecast to track along it. At this time it looks like the bulk of the precip will wait until Thu before reaching the CT River Valley. Increasing cloud cover will keep temps more mild than recent nights with lows in the 40's.
Low pressure will track east along the stalled frontal boundary on Thursday. Any early morning sun quickly fades, clouds will quickly over-spread the region. Rain will spread from west to east, likely reaching New Hampshire by midday. Expect rain to push into northern and western zones by early afternoon with the rain becoming heavier during the afternoon. The low will be tracking through central New England and off the coast Thursday evening taking the rain along with it. There will be the potential to see about .30- to .75" inches of rain. Highs will range from the mid 40s to lower 50s north and mid 50s to lower 60s south. Low pressure will shift northeast into the maritimes Thursday night.
Strong northwest flow will clear skies downwind of the mountains toward daybreak Friday. Lows overnight will dip into the mid 30s to lower 40s. High pressure will build in from the west on Friday producing strong northwesterly winds over the region. Will see sharply cooler temps with highs only in the upper 30s to upper 40s. High pressure will crest over the region Friday night before sliding off to the southeast. Gusts over 25 mph will be possible as the cooler air comes rushing in behind the departing and deepening low.
A Weak shortwave will deepen the upper trough over the region on Saturday. Morning sun will give way to skies becoming partly cloudy. More clouds will be possible in the mountains with the cooler air aloft but not much else aside from a few flurries on the summits. Highs will generally range through the 40s to near 50.
Clouds will persist over the region Saturday night and Sunday as upper trough continues to dig in over the northeast. May see some light scattered snow or rain shower activity late Saturday night into Sunday as trough axis crosses the region but any precip should be light and spotty. Highs on Sunday will once again range through the 40s. Expect diminishing clouds Sunday night as upper trough drifts off to the southeast and surface high pressure builds in from the west. First half of next week looking fair with high pressure in control over the area into Wednesday.
