NH1 Weather Insider: From June Gloom to Bloom
NH1 Chief Meteorologist
A cool start to June has proven to be record breaking. Boston recording the coldest 3 consecutive days in June on record with highs in the 40's and Lwr 50's. But the return of the sunshine has made the cool wet conditions a distant memory, and now all eyes are focused on the weekend which is quickly approaching. High pressure sits just off the New England coastline Thursday with sunshine and moderating temperatures inland. Southerly winds along with the heat from the sun will allow Highs to climb to near 70-75 inland. Along the coast, winds will still be from the SE, so temperatures will still struggle to warm with highs mostly in the Lwr 60's.
A front remains stalled off the east coast with considerable clouds and a few showers to our south. The showers will stay south of us, but a few of the clouds may break off and make for Partly sunny skies of Friday with a mild SW wind across the interior with highs in the Lwr-mid 70's, still cooler at the coast. A cold front will arrive late in the day in the far north and this could trigger a late afternoon shower or thunderstorm in the far north country. Most of our day Friday will be dry and mild. Best chance of a shower will be Friday night, but the energy from the showers will diminish without the sun. This front will push through Friday night with a stray shower and be off the coast early Saturday.
High pressure will build in for an absolutely sparkling weekend. A few clouds near the front at dawn Saturday, otherwise mostly sunny skies and very pleasant comfortable air will reign. A breeze from the NW Saturday will keep highs 70-75. A warmer wind from the SW tries to shift in Sunday for highs in the Lwr-mid 70's inland with seabreezes at the coast. SW winds will continue Monday and strengthen ahead of an approaching cold front. A few scattered showers or a thunderstorm will be possible late in the day through early Tuesday, before drier and warmer air returns. Next week is looking like a warmer week overall. So summer warmth lovers do not fret. Enjoy the beauty of the weather for all it is. Your time will come soon enough!
