NH1 Weather Insider with Joe Joyce: December 9, 2015
NH1 Chief Meteorologist
A cool frost start to Wednesday with temps near freezing. Skies briefly cleared for a time overnight to allow for some cooling, but high-mid level clouds are rolling back in. It looks like this Wednesday will have a good amount of cloud cover to contend with again. A thinner overcast from time to time could give way to a few breaks of sun. Light SE winds with high pressure just off the coast along with some partial sun will allow temps to climb into the Lwr 40's by afternoon. More clouds than sun can be expected. Low clouds will quickly fill in Wednesday night with a souther flow in off the water. There will be a risk of some patchy drizzle near dawn at Thursday. Another mostly cloudy day can be expected Thursday, with a weak upper level disturbance and a weak front at the surface. Highs will rise slightly into the lwr 50's under a SSW wind and few breaks of afternoon sun.
A warm front will be over us Friday morning marking the leading edge of the milder air which will be arriving for the end of the week. As the warm front lifts north, skies will turn Partly sunny with temperatures climbing into the mid 50's. An upper level ridge will shift to the east coast this weekend bring unseasonal warmth, a mix of sun and clouds and highs well into the 50's nearing 60 on Sunday! A perfect time for some late season or early winter golf? Why not?! 2 weekends in a row like this. Incredible!
On Monday, a cold front will approach and bring a period of rain along with it. Temperatures will cool behind the front with breezy NW winds. Temperatures will fluctuate between mild and cool in the days leading up to Christmas. A more active track of weather will develop in the coming days as well. The Arctic air is locked up in the poles for now, and could remain there for some time. Still, some of our models are sniffing our a colder blast of air pushing into the nation around the 21- 22nd which could be a trigger for a disturbance to form, and come with rain and snow, and if the temperature contrast between the cold and warm continues, there may be another low which develops on this boundary which could be moving through Christmas Eve? Could there be a Christmas Surprise of snow? How great would that be?! It's out there folks. The weather is going to get very interesting around the 20-25th! It will be colder and more active. Stay tuned!
