Another beauty of a day for Wednesday with highs in the upper 60's and Lwr 70's by afternoon under light west wind. Even the beaches will climb into the upper 60's to near 70 with sunny to partly sunny skies. A weak cold front will slide through during the afternoon hours and off the coast. This will come with no precipitation, but it will come with a few passing clouds and a wind shift back to the NW. Cooler drier air will be directed back into New England with building high pressure following in from Canada. Thursday will be sun-filled but a bit cooler with highs in the lwr-mid 60's. While we are basking in the sunshine, a low will be tracking into the Great Lakes. This will be our next weather maker as it will track right over us Friday with showers. There is the potential for a nice little rain here with up to a quarter to .40" of rain by the time this begins Friday morning and finally wraps up Friday night. High pressure will return for the all important Columbus day weekend. It is amazing how important this weekend has become to the local tourist industry here in New Hampshire as they cater to the leaf peepers who come far and wide to experience nature's seasonal beauty. Luckily, the weather and the timing of the foliage should work out wonderfully for those looking to hit the great outdoors this weekend with sunshine. A real crisp fall feel will be in place this weekend as well with highs in the 50's to near 60 by Sunday. Temperatures will climb back to near 70 for the start of next week.
Don't forget! If you are up the next few mornings before sunrise, just look to the east and you will see a pretty amazing view of a planetary alignment of Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Mercury! You might as well get some benefit to being up so early!
