NH1 Chief Meteorologist
The chances of thunderstorms are mainly over, but we can not quite let our guard down yet. Wednesday will be cooler day overall from what we have seen recently. Highs will be in the 70's and Lwr 80's by afternoon. Light west winds will warm southern and eastern NH into the Lwr 80's. It will be a less humid day as well with dewpoints mostly in the 50's. What is not to like? We still have the cool pool of air above our heads which will allow afternoon clouds to build during the peak heating of the day. Sunny to Partly sunny skies can be expected. There will be a weak front associated with an upper level piece of energy which will swing through during the afternoon, which could trigger a brief pop up shower or storm...but it will not be the kind of severe weather set up we have seen the past two days. A welcome break from the heat, humidity and storms.
Much more comfortable air will settle in Wednesday night with clear skies, falling dewpoints and lows in the 50's. High pressure to our west on Thursday will provide a dry and comfortable NW flow with mostly sunny skies and temps in the 70's. We will hold onto the fair weather right through Friday with a west wind keeping the beaches nice and cozy.
Meanwhile, we continue to track a low Friday which will be pushing towards the mid-Atlantic states and eventually off the coast. The latest information continues to take this low far enough away from New England to spare us any impacts this weekend. This is great news, as trends have been for a farther south track. I just hope it holds. It will be the first thing I look for when I get back to work Wednesday. This time of year we do not need any inclement weather on the weekends as they are so precious and fleeting. So far it looks like we should be in good shape.
As the low tracks south of us, a cooler NE wind will develop Saturday. This will keep it cooler at the beaches this weekend. Enough dry air will be directed into New England from Canada as this low departs, we are looking at partly sunny skies and highs in the mid 70's inland with cooler breezes at the coast. Not the summer warmth some may be looking for, but it will be very comfortable and clean refreshing air...which is just fine by me. I will keep you in formed of any future changes.
