Whew! That was just what we needed, but I am glad the cool rain is over now. A widespread 2-4" rainfall across New Hampshire, with a few locations in Rockingham county seeing over 5"! Impressive. High pressure is building in with sinking stable air which will break up the cloud deck and give way to skies becoming mostly sunny Wednesday. Highs will climb into the 60's and Lwr 70's farther inland away from a very light onshore wind. Temperatures at the coast will be quite a bit cooler with highs only in the 50's and Lwr 60's under a light SE flow during the afternoon. watch for the full Strawberry moon illuminate the evening sky Wednesday night with lows dropping into the Lwr-mid 40's.
As the high pulls off the coast Thursday, warmer southerly winds will help to bring in slightly warmer air with highs climbing near 70-75 degrees inland. Still it will be a struggle to warm at the beaches, remaining in the 60's in the sunshine! Clouds will increasing Friday. I expect mostly cloudy skies with still a mild wind from the SW for inland locations. A wave of low pressure will be tracking up along the stalled front parked off the east coast. It is even showing signs of some tropical development, could it become Tropical storm Bill? We'll see. Either way, the low and rain will stay off shore, but these clouds spread up the coast and into New England on Friday. There will also be a cold front pushing in on Friday in the afternoon which could trigger a brief shower or thunderstorm.
Once this front pushes through Friday night, it is building high pressure with very pleasant, comfortable air for the weekend with sea breezes at the coast. It is not your classic summer warmth, but it will be really nice to be outside. That is exactly what we are looking for this time of year!
