NH1 Weather Insider with Joe Joyce: May 21, 2015

NH1 Chief Meteorologist

Talk about swings in temperature! Tuesday we were in the upper 70's, Wednesday was 20 degrees cooler only in the upper 50's! Some areas in the north country will even be waking up to a touch of frost early Thursday morning. The good news is a lighter and warmer wind from the SW will be in place Thursday which will help to push temperatures back into the 60's and Lwr 70's by afternoon. Some clouds will be streaming through the region as we will be between two systems...a cold front to our north and Low tracking through the mid-Atlantic and off the coast of New England early Friday morning. Overall a fair weather and fine Thursday to enjoy!

Friday will be another mostly dry day in the 60's near 70. But we will be watching a cold front slide through the region during the day. It will likely come with a period of clouds, and a sprinkle or shower. Behind the front, breezy NW winds will direct another blast of even cooler air. I expect most areas across New Hampshire early Saturday will start off in the 30's at dawn, with the potential for a widespread frost and freeze in the NW valleys with lows in the 20's in the mountains of New Hampshire. Breezy NW winds will continue all day Saturday with cooler than normal temperatures ranging from 60 to 65 degrees

Sunday will mark a significant change in the airmass and pattern. An upper level trough will be lifting out of the Northeast and an upper level ridge will begin to shift and strengthen across the east allowing warmer air to arrive in New England. Sunday will be the pick of the weekend with mostly sunny skies, warmer west winds and highs climbing into the 70's. A warm front will approach on Memorial Day. Clouds will increase with the front. There will be the potential for showers along this warm front, but it appears most will stay away from New Hampshire. Still there is a chance for a few showers Monday, especially closer to the front. The warm front will lift through Tuesday bringing warmer more humid air into the region right through the midweek with temperatures in the 70'd and 80's. A more summery feel is right around the corner just in time for the unofficial start to summer!
