NH1 Weather Insider with Joe Joyce: June 2, 2015

NH1 Chief Meteorologist - NH1.com

It is remarkable when you think about it. May was one of our driest month's on record. We have seen 14 days above 80 degrees this spring. Temperatures on Saturday were near 90, then Bam! The cold front blows through, the rain arrives and temps are suddenly in the 40's and 50's and we are reaching for the coats! June 1st broke records in numerous locations for coldest HIGH temperature for that date. High we running about 20-25 degrees below the average. I have some bad news...Tuesday will not be much better! That's right, another chill, wet raw day ahead. But there are some signs of at least some improvement to weather ahead.

Tuesday morning will start off wet. Plain and simple. With the stationary front off the coast and a wave of low pressure riding along and tracking along the south coast, I am expecting some steady downpours in the morning hours. Heaviest will be in Southern New England where a Flash Flood Watch is in effect until Tuesday night. Some areas in the south have seen up to 3-4" of rain with more to come. Across New Hampshire, rain totals have averaged between 1.5-2.5"...with another .50-.75" likely Tuesday. The morning commute will be wet, but the back edge of the rain will be shifting west to east during the morning. Rain will be ending by the midday, but light rain and drizzle will linger at the coast. I expect a cloudy, and drier afternoon. Clouds and NE winds off the water will help to keep temps near 50-55, with the warmest temps inland away from the coast.

Weak high pressure will follow in for Wednesday to Thursday with partly to mostly sunny skies and temperatures gradually starting to warm up, especially by Thursday with more of a SW wind direction back into the 70's. A cold front will approach Friday. Clouds will increase with the risk of scattered afternoon showers. This front should push through for a mostly dry, sunny, but seasonally cooler weekend. Winds will shift onshore behind the front keeping temperatures in the 60's at the beaches and Lwr-mid 70's inland.
