NH1 Weather Insider: June 21, 2015
As Summer officially begins at 12:39pm on Father’s Day the remains of tropical depression Bill will be moving through the region. Thus, early morning showers will turn to heavier tropical downpours after daybreak lasting until about 10am-Noon in the western and northern parts of the state and tapering off between Noon and 2pm in southeastern areas. After 2pm, we can expect the heavier rains to exit with just a good deal of clouds left behind and only scattered light showers around. Rainfall totals to the north and west will generally be about 0.5 to 1.25 inches of rain, but areas south and east of a line from approximately Wakefield to Milford is expected to receive 1-2 inches of rain with a few localized spots possibly picking up 3 inches!
So, if you have golf plans with Dad or you’re going to be out grilling it’s going to be a very muggy day and the best chance of any dry periods will be during mid-late afternoon hours. High will be in the lower half of the 70s. However, a cold front will cross the region Sunday night and it will bring another round of showers with it Sunday evening that will taper off during Monday morning with sunshine and less humid air to follow for the afternoon with temperatures climbing to the upper 70s and low 80s.
The rest of the week looks to be unsettled from time to time with fast moving weather systems crossing New England, somewhat reminiscent of how things were going last winter. So, while Wednesday looks like a great Day, Tuesday and Thursday will bring a threat of late afternoon/evening showers and thunderstorms. Highs throughout most of the week will remain in the mid and upper 70s. Yet another weather system looks to approach us by next weekend.
Have a great weekend!
