NH1 First Alert Weather: Two more unsettled days, then a great mid-week for NH
It was a cloudy, cool weekend, but some changes are on the way for this week.
Monday will once again feature more clouds than sun, but some breaks of sunshine are likely in places. Any sun will boost temperatures to near 70 degrees. With the upper-level low that has been dominating our weather for days still in the vicinity, any sun will be destructive, allowing scattered showers and downpours to develop during the afternoon. The highest risk of showers will be inland, away from the seacoast. An isolated thunderstorm can't be ruled out either.
Clouds will remain in place Monday night, with lows in the upper 40s to low 50s Tuesday morning. Tuesday will start off dull and gray with lots of clouds, but high pressure will begin building into New Hampshire from the northeast. Drier air will eat away at the clouds from north to south, allowing for increasing sun during the afternoon. Along the seacoast, the wind will be gusty at times, out of the east and northeast.
High pressure will remain in control of our weather through the end of the week.
Wednesday morning could be foggy in places, but once the fog burns off, expect lots of sun and highs in the 60s.
Mostly sunny skies and warmer air aloft should boost our temperatures into the low 70s in places both Thursday and Friday.
Thereafter, all eyes will be on Hurricane Matthew. The forecast for next weekend remains highly uncertain, depending on the exact track of Matthew and timing of an approaching front from the west.
While the odds of a direct hit remain low, but not zero, it is possible some of Matthew's moisture could play a role in our weather during the second half of the weekend into early next week.
