Cloudy skies this morning in place with a light SE wind. Scattered showers and areas of drizzle will begin to form around midday. A steady light to moderate rain will develop during the afternoon hours. Temperatures will climb into the 40's and Lwr 50's during the afternoon. The rain will fill in during the evening with a steady breeze from the SE picking up with gusts to 20-30 mph as a cold front will approach from the west. A wave of low pressure will develop on this front and help to enhance the rainfall over us during the late evening and overnight hours early on Friday morning. Rainfall totals will range from .50-2" of rain in the heavier spots. The heaviest rain is expected between 9 PM and 4 AM in the morning Friday. Localized jack pots of heavy rain are expected across the north country form the Lakers region to the White mountains.
Friday morning's early morning commute will start off wet, but rain should quickly be pushing off the coast and be mostly over by 9 AM. Low clouds will break with skies gradually clearing with increasing sunshine from midday through the afternoon with highs in the Lwr-mid 50's. It will turn into a very nice day when all is said an done. Building high pressure will direct cooler dry air from Canada back into New England Friday night for another cool night. Saturday will be dry with seasonal temperatures in the 40's near 50. High altitude clouds will be drifting through ahead of our next disturbance which will make for filtered sunshine and at time s greyish appearance to the sky.
A strong low will be tracking up through the Great Lakes and North and West of New England Sunday. On the back side of this low, heavy snow will fall over Michigan and the Lakes. Meanwhile, here in New Hampshire a cold front from this low will sweep through the region Sunday morning and it may trigger a few passing rain or snow showers as it moves through. Skies will turn partly sunny with another push of colder than normal air following in to start the week.
High pressure will control the weather for the start to middle of the week with plenty of sunshine. Temps will start of cold and gradually moderate from the Lwr 40's Monday to near 50 degrees by Thanksgiving. The pattern looks storm free and good for travelling across most of the nation. It could start to get a bit more interesting by next weekend.
