NH1 Weather Insider with Joe Joyce: April 20, 2016
NH1 Chief Meteorologist
Plenty of sunshine in store for the next 2 days. High pressure is building in today with diminishing NW winds. Sunshine with highs in the 50's and Lwr 60's. The Brush fire danger remains with the dry, breezy conditions and the dry conditions on the ground. Any fire which pops up can rapidly spread. High pressure crest over us tonight with another cool evening in the 20's and Lwr 30's with clear skies. High pressure will slide south of us and begin to wrap in a milder SW wind on Thursday with highs climbing back into the Lwr-mid 70's. A absolute spring beauty!
A cold front approaches on Friday. SW winds ahead of the front will keep it mild with highs again in the lwr 70's! But clouds will be on the increase, and scattered showers will likely begin to pop during midday into the afternoon with the risk of even an embedded thunderstorm. A showers will end Friday night as the cold front pulls off the coast. Breezy NW winds will follow in behind for Saturday morning as high pressure builds and and delivers another shot of seasonal air back into the region with sunshine and highs in the 50's near 60.
Another weak cold front will approach will approach Sunday. Skies will become partly sunny with the risk of a passing shower. Highs will be in the 50's. Behind this front, even cooler air will follow in for the start of next week. A persistent trough in place across the Northeast will ensure a flow of air out of Canada and prevent any sort of warm up to end April for our region of the country. Monday will see plenty of sunshine with returning high pressure from Canada but highs will only be in the Lwr-mid 50's.
A pronounced boundary separating the cooler states (us) from the warmer states (South) will become established as showers and areas of low pressure will develop along these differing airmasses. Our first round on the boundary train arrives Tuesday in the form of showers, but it may mix with wet snow upon it's early arrival at dawn Tuesday morning. Periodic showers , sometimes heavy will take us right into early Wednesday, when will be tracking another low on this boundary between warm and cool. Moral of the story is the weather will be cooler and more active next week with a few chances of rain, and maybe even some wet snow. Enjoy the sun!
