Plenty of low cloudiness, drizzle and fog can expected Friday morning, especially closer to the coast. Also we can also watch out for an early passing shower between 5-8 AM as part of a warm front pushing through. Winds will be shifting to the south with highs climbing into the 70's by afternoon with a few breaks possible. A cold front lie west of us most of of the day. As this front marches eastward it could trigger a late day-early evening shower or thunderstorm. Therefore, expect a scattered shower to last into the evening hours. The cloud cover and low cloudiness will keep temperatures running near seasonal norms for this time of year.
There is not much wind or cold behind the departing cold front. Therefore, areas of low cloudiness and patchy fog may linger Friday night, especially along and near the coastline. The cold front does not have a whole lot of push to it, so it may not quite make it to the coast before Saturday. Onshore winds at the coast could also help to keep the front inland. This front will push offshore Saturday with drying NW winds inland. Warmer 80s are likely inland during the afternoon, while the coast will stay in the mid 70s with sea breezes. It will be the nicest day of the forecast as there should be a fair amount of sun with temperatures warm, but not too hot.
Next upper level trough and associated frontal system begins to affect our area Sunday. As the low moves through the Great Lakes, a warm front will lift north toward New England, spreading rain out along and ahead of it. Expect the rain to move in primarily during the the late morning and become heavier during the midday and afternoon from southwest to northeast. The most likely period for rain and the heaviest rain will be the afternoon & Sunday night where even embedded T'storms could be possible in any downpours. We could see total rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches, but not enough to cause flooding problems. We should see the steadier rain come to an end during the early morning hours of Monday from southwest to northeast. Drying mild west winds will follow in behind the departing low. With some sun it could even reach the upper 70s near 80 in southern New Hampshire. The Upper low slowly moves across the area Tuesday into Wednesday. As it does so, having that cooler air aloft will lend itself to afternoon cumulus and periodic pop up shower. Temperatures will be generally mild, in the low 70s for highs and the 50s for lows. Upper low finally moves away for Thursday with dry conditions expected.
