NH1 Weather Insider with Joe Joyce: September 15, 2015
NH1 Chief Meteorologist
The Upper low which has help to provide some cooler unsettled weather for New England the past two days is lifting out. Following behind is a huge upper level ridge which will help to direct more stable sinking air we call subsidence. Sinking air is high pressure at the surface which helps to prevent air from rising. No rising air means no clouds, and lots of sunshine! This upper level ridge is going to sit in the eastern half of the nation right into the weekend making for a prolonged stretch of sunshine and summer-like conditions.
WNW wind direction Tuesday around the departing low pressure in the Canadian maritimes will provide just enough of a Canadian airmass Tuesday that high will be in the 70's to Lwr 80's. Temperatures will be warming through the middle to end of the week into the lwr-mid 80's which is about 10-15 degrees above the average for this time of year. There are too many signs of the upcoming season I do not even feel like talking about yet. I just want to enjoy this last gasp of summer while it lasts. I have said it before and I will say it again....this will be the best stretch of weather we have had all summer. So please make the best of it while it lasts. Take a long lunch break. Go for a long walk, or an early morning run. Whatever you choose to do make sure to take moments to be outside and enjoy this airmass.
We will be watching for a weak cold front pushing through Saturday night with a few clouds. Behind this front a cooler more seasonal airmass will follow. Next thing you know, we will be right back into the Lwr 70's! How quickly things can change around here!
