NH1 Weather Insider with Joe Joyce: October 22, 2015
NH1 Chief Meteorologist
A front remains stalled south of New Hampshire Thursday morning. Light onshore winds will keep low clouds and patchy fog locked in place for the early morning hours. Showers from the Great Lakes have shifted west to east during the overnight...and have arrived over us just in time for the early morning commute hours. A few showers along a warm front this morning will lift out with drier weather developing by midday as the warm front lifts through NH. Winds will be shifting to the SSW during the afternoon with even a few breaks of sun possible. If we get the breaks, highs will climb into Lwr 70's in spots. If the clouds hold tight, most of us will be mild anyway well into the 60's as we bask in the glow of the warm sector behind this warm front.
The only problem is a cold front will be quickly closing in at the end of the day to trigger potentially another late day shower. Once the front pushes off the coast, drier cooler air will follow in with breezes from the NW. Clearing skies Thursday night will give way to mostly sunny skies Friday with highs in the 40's and to Lwr 50's and a chilly wind from Canada for most of the day. High pressure will build and slide right over us for a clear and frosty start to Saturday with lows in the 20's and Lwr 30's. Sunshine all day Saturday with a warmer wind from the south by afternoon will push temps into the mid 50's. High altitude clouds will create filtered sun and skies during the afternoon.
A weak cold front will approach Saturday night through Sunday morning. This will come with more clouds, and the risk of a passing shower or two. Most of Sunday will be dry, especially in the afternoon with temperatures a bit warm in the 50's near 60. Another high will quickly follow the departing front for a better Sunday afternoon and more sunshine with pleasant fall like air to start off next week. We will have a better chance of showers returning by next Wednesday.
