An incredible Monday with highs near 70-75 degrees! I wish it could last. Plenty more amazing days ahead! But as always here in New Hampshire, the changes come fast and furious! A few early morning showers will be moving through during the early morning commute along with a cold front. This front will push off the coast with drying westerly breezes for the midday through afternoon. Temperatures will be starting off near 50, so with a little sunshine and a land breeze, temperatures will quickly warm by the afternoon back into the 60's with mostly sunny skies.
A wave of low pressure will ride up along this front tomorrow night and track far south of New England, but it may spread in some clouds into New Hampshire early Tuesday night with partly cloudy skies. High pressure will be sliding south from Canada bringing lots of dry air from Canada with plenty of susnhine for the midweek. But, the high will also come with a cooler airmass which will settle in Wednesday through Thursday over us. The normal high temperature for this date is 56 degrees. But what is normal? It is the middle of extremes. Even though our air mass will be cooling down a bit...the air is just not that cold this time of year. So simply put, despite the cooler air arriving for the midweek. Temperatures will still average slightly above the norm thanks to this strong mid-April sunshine.
Sunshine will last right through Thursday. The high will sit right over us with clear and calm conditions. Crisp cool evenings. As the high pulls away, warmer SW winds will develop. Clouds may try to increase a bit more by Friday as warmer air starts to push into the Northeast, and may even trigger a shower. After spending the midweek in the Lwr 60's, by Friday into Saturday...a stronger push of warmer air will be arriving in New England. If Saturday ridging can hold on long enough to keep the rain away during the daylight hours, we may even get another run to 70. It looks like out next best chance of showers will come later Saturday. Luckily, it looks like a fairly progressive wave of rain which will come then go. Sunday will be cooler with breezy NW winds but mostly dry.
Many were outside this weekend doing some spring clean up. What a mess out there! This is a good time of year for raking out all the dead grass left over from the winter. This will help the lawn in the coming weeks for any treatments you may be applying. Pollen counts are already at moderate levels. Just the beginning of the allergy season. From one season to the next....it never ends!
