Building high pressure with breezy NW winds directing cooler dry air into New Hampshire for Friday with highs only in the 40's and Lwr 50's by afternoon. The high will sit right over us Friday night with diminishing winds and colder temps with overnight lows falling into the 20's and Lwr 30's. A frosty start to Saturday but sunshine will reign for much of the day. As high pressure pulls off the coast, onshore winds from the SE will keep it cooler at the coast with highs only in the Lwr 50's. We will have to watch the onshore winds and a deck of low clouds which may try to sneak back into NH during the afternoon on Saturday to make skies Partly cloudy. Either way, skies will be increasing and thickening with cloud cover Saturday night along with the ocean cloud deck and an approaching cold front from the west. Expect a period of Showers after midnight Saturday night through the early morning hours of Sunday through about 9 AM. It will be a mostly cloudy Sunday, with a drier and milder afternoon as winds shift to the WSW. Even a few breaks of sun could be possible during the afternoon.
Building high pressure will again return Sunday night and Monday with another cooler shot of air with highs in the Lwr 50's Sunshine will firmly be in place for Monday and Tuesday. We will have to watch the midweek as a more energized low will approach and more moisture will be in play from the Gulf of Mexico, even some remnants from Category 4 Hurricane Patricia which is slamming into the central coast of Mexico. This rain will be approaching later Wednesday through Thursday and promises to come with a good soaking rainfall hopefully for the Northeast which could certainly be used.
