NH1 Weather Insider with Joe Joyce: October 29, 2015
NH1 Chief Meteorologist
Get ready for a wild early morning commute! Between 5-7 AM I expect torrential rain, with an embedded thunderstorm to be pushing through. This will be the final batch of Tropical rainfall which should be quite the grand finale! Unfortunately, it will be happening while many are heading to work. Rainfall totals are expected to accumulate up to 1-2" of rain, so I do expect big puddles on the roads, along with slippery conditions along with the fallen leaves. This storm will be a great defoliator ripping leaves from the trees. It should be a good weekend for doing a little yard work no doubt! Anyway, allow yourself extra time as the AM commute will be slooooow! In fact, if you can hold off until 8 or 9 AM, the better off you will be for travel.
A cold front will sweep through Thursday morning and push away the rain. Temperatures were climbing during the overnight. Look for a mild start in the Lwr 60's. Once the rain ends by mid morning, expect clouds to begin to break with cloudy to partly cloudy skies by afternoon. Breezy & Mild SW winds behind the cold front will help to direct milder air from the south into New England with highs in the 60's and Lwr 70's by Thursday afternoon. Not too shabby! A weak cold front will approach by the end of the day and will come with more clouds and the risk for a passing shower. This will mark the leading edge of cooler air which will be returning for the end of the week. Clearing skies Thursday night will make for a very nice night at Foxboro as the patriots take on the Dolphins.
Breezy cooler NW winds will shift in for Friday with sunny to partly sunny skies. More clouds will be in the mountains. Highs win the lwr-mid 50's. High pressure sits right over us Saturday with Sunshine, lighter winds and highs in the Lwr-mid 50's. Clear skies expected for the Trick or Treaters with high altitude clouds pushing through with temps in the 40's. A weak cold front will approach Sunday with more clouds and the chance for a shower or two. High pressure will return Monday and sit near us through the midweek with moderating temperatures into the 60's next week
