NH1 First Alert Weather: Summer Not Over Yet!
NH1 Chief Meteorologist
The remnants of tropical system Hermine will continue to weaken and remain nearly stationary south of New England through Wednesday, as high pressure holds in place over the Canadian maritimes. An upper level trough will pick up whatever is left of Hermine on Thursday and move it out to sea. A cold front, associated with this trough will move through the region Thursday night and could trigger a few showers late. High pressure will follow briefly on Friday & Saturday before another front pushes through early Sunday bringing another chance of showers and lower humidity to follow.
National Weather Service Text Product Display Patchy drizzle and fog expected once again Wednesday morning as Hermine finally begins to drift northeast after briefly backing towards New Jersey Tuesday. Any light showers or drizzle will eventually end in the afternoon with a few breaks of sun, especially inland. Highs will be in the 70's to near 80. The upper level low finally opens up and gets kicked out towards the northeast by Wednesday night. This will allow for the remains of Hermine to cross near or over the Cape Cod Canal and into the Gulf of Maine Thursday. This system will be in a very weakened state, so sensible weather and long period swells will be less and less of an issue with time. The dissipation of the remains of Hermine will lead to drier and warm weather conditions in the long term portion of the forecast. Highs will climb back into the 80's Thursday with humidity still lingering. A weak trailing cold front Thursday night into Friday perhaps setting off a stray shower with its passage. Friday will feature summer warmth with highs well into the 80's nearing 90 in spots.
Weak ridging follows for late Friday and Friday night. Sunshine on Saturday with highs a little cooler in the Lwr-middle 80's. A more substantial front will approach the area on Saturday night and early Sunday morning accompanied by scattered showers and possibly a thunderstorm. High pressure and drier air follows Sunday afternoon through early next week with more fall-like air Monday with low humidity with highs in the 70's. Temps will warm back into the 80's by next Tuesday & Wednesday.
