"But I thought it was going to be sunny this weekend?!" That's what some of you may think to yourself Saturday morning as overcast skies sit over your head. A cold front will be pushing off the coast, but these clouds will stick around for most of the morning. Clouds will be breaking during the late morning Saturday and giving way to increasing sunshine with Breezy NW winds across the inland. High pressure builds for the afternoon and delivers another shot of seasonal air back into the region with sunshine and highs in the 50's and lwr 60's. The Coast will be a bit different. I am afraid the clouds will hold on for most of the day at the beach. Critical fire weather conditions remain in place Saturday because of the dry air and ground the past two weeks. Please use caution and avoid burning anything. Skies will will be clear Saturday night with lows dropping down to near 32 by dawn on Sunday.
Sunday will be a beauty of a day with sunny skies and highs in the upper 50's and Lwr 60's. Another weak cold front will approach Sunday night and early Monday morning. This front will stall over us Monday and come with more clouds and a chance of a showers. Southern New England will still be in the 60's, but cooler air will keep NH in the 50's. Periodic showers will be possible Monday, Monday Night into Tuesday morning. A wave of low pressure will track from the Great Lakes through Southern New England Tuesday. This will bring another period of heavier rain early Tuesday morning. It is questionable how far north the rain will spread into NH. Either way, it looks cool, raw and damp in the 40's Tuesday.
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 the contrast of these differing air masses. The boundary will extend across the nation. Wave one will be off the coast midday Tuesday. As the low pulls away, high pressure will build in from Canada with drier seasonal air in the 50's to near 60 for the midweek...Wednesday & Thursday. Another low will track from the Great Lakes and into the Northeast for later Thursday into early Friday. This will come with another chance of beneficial rain to help alleviate the brush fire and high pollen conditions. This far out...the first weekend of May is looking drier and cooler. A warmer pattern of weather should be developing heading into May. Have a great weekend!
