NH1 Weather Insider with Joe Joyce: December 4, 2015
NH1 Chief Meteorologist
Quiet weather all around for the next several days. Sunshine will start Friday with temps starting off near 32. An upper level disturbance will slide over our heads during the afternoon. Skies should become partly sunny during the afternoon with a lighter west wind. Highs will be in the Lwr-Mid 40's. High pressure will sit right over us all weekend with sunshine, light winds and near perfect conditions for early December. Saturday will see highs nearing 50. By Sunday, highs will be climbing to near 50-55 in Southern New Hampshire, slightly cooler in the north.
The High will begin to pull off the coast to start off next week. Sunshine and dry air will hold Monday into Tuesday. Onshore winds will develop during the mid week as we watch for a potential storm to develop off the Mid-Atlantic coastline. Trends have been for this storm to stay south and out to sea next week, but one of our models still has some rain arriving here later next Wednesday. I have my doubts. We will continue to watch. Either way, there will not be any cold around and it would be a fast moving low impact event if it somehow makes it up here.
Overall, it is a dry pattern with temperatures averaging above normal for the entire week into next weekend with a big flat upper level ridge dominating the eastern half of the nation. The next chance of any cold returning to the pattern will be somewhere around December 15th-18th. If this is what El Nino is going to bring this winter...sign me up! You know it won't be that easy...but getting through December will be a good first step!
