NH1 Weather Insider with Joe Joyce: November 26, 2015

A huge area of high pressure parked off the coast is close enough to us to keep us dry through Friday. In fact, last night this high broke a record for the highest surface pressure ever recorded in eastern New England in November clocking in at 1046 mb. The average sea level pressure is usually around 1013 mb! As Donald Trump would say....It's Huge! Clock-wise rotation of air around this monster high is wrapping in a milder Southerly wind for Thanksgiving. It is also directing some low ocean clouds in off the water and through the region today. Cloudy to partly cloudy skies can be expected with temperatures climbing to 50-54 degrees during the afternoon. The early morning Turkey trots will start off cool, but nice calm, milder feel to enjoy for the Holiday will be in place for the afternoon.
We will remain on the warmer side of a cold front Friday with mild SSW wind. Partly sunny skies with temperatures very mild for this time of year in the 50's to near 60. A weakening cold front arrive Friday night with clouds and a passing shower. Once the front pushes through, building high pressure from Canada will direct a cooler more typical late November airmass into New Hampshire with mostly sunny skies and highs in the Lwr-mid 40's. The high will keep us sunny, dry and cool right into the start of next week. We will likely have a chance of showers arrive sometime later Tuesday-Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning next week. it does not look like a big deal.
Moving into December, we will start to have more active storm track with the potential for frequent chances of precipitation, and eventually one of those should deliver some snow. We are simply running out of time. This winter could start off like last winter with little snow on the front end, and more snow on the back end. But this winter should be very different and little easier to take. Still, with an average snowfall of 60-70" per year...it's hard to get off totally scott-free around these parts!
