NH1 Weather Insider with Joe Joyce: May 31, 2015
It looks like may is going to go out on the wet side. After an an amazing Saturday with temps in the 80's near 90. Sunday will be a bit of a downer with clouds and periodic showers, even a rumble of thunder is possible. A cold front is crossing through New Hampshire in the morning. Temps will start off in the 60's. The front will push into southern New England during the afternoon and stall. It will be the focus for more afternoon thunderstorms and downpours...especially along and south of the MA turnpike. In New Hampshire, showers will be happening on and off ove rthe corse of the whole day. Temps will start off in the 60's. Behind the front, winds will shift to the NNE and we will end the day in the 50's with cloudy, cool damp conditions. From 90 to 58 over the span of two days...only in New England!
The front will remain stalled off the south coast Monday with a wave of low pressure tracking along it into the Mid-Atlantic states with copious moisture. Cooler high pressure will be supplying the cooler heavier low lever air with NE winds at the surface. Upper level winds will transport the warmer, more humid air aloft. A prefect overrunning set up for periods of rain lasting through Tuesday. Rain will redevelop Early morning on Monday. I expect a wet Monday Morning commute. Rain could be steady for most of the day. Cool, breezy, NE winds will lock in the cool air with highs near 50-54 degrres. Another steady batch of rain will be possible Monday night and early Tuesday. I think Tuesday will start off wet, with mostly drizzle left over by afternoon as the low will finally begin to pull away. Total rainfall will get upto 1-3" so it is exactly what the lawns and gardens need. Commuters Monday and Tuesday mornings will have their share of challenges.
