NH1 Weather Insider with Joe Joyce: September 16, 2015
NH1 Chief Meteorologist
A huge upper level ridge remains in place across the eastern half of the nation with high pressure at the surface clearing out the clouds and making for days and days of sunshine. Warmer temperatures are being directed into the Northeast with a warmer WSW wind direction. Highs in Wed, Thur, and Friday will average in the Lwr-mid 80's with 100 percent of the possible sunshine. It is a late summer surge of warmth which is hard to come by as days are getting shorter, and the sun getting lower in the sky. Afterall, the average high this time of year is in the Lwr 70's. So enjoy these warm days while they last because they are certainly not long for this world.
Temperatures will remain warm into Saturday with southerly winds keeping temps in the Lwr 80's, cooler sea breezes at the coast will drop temps into the 70's at the beaches during the afternoon. A cold front will push through Saturday night with a period of clouds, with building high pressure and increasing sunshine Sunday. Cooler air aloft will mix down to the ground with breezy NW winds Sunday with highs dropping a good 10 degrees inot the Lwr 70's Sunday. By Monday, 60's to Lwr 70's is all we will be able to reach. Have no fear...next week looks just as nice! Another big high will follow with more days of sunshine and moderating temps into the 70's nearing 80. September in New England....the best month by far! Seriously, it's not even close. As long as there are no hurricanes, September has the summer warmth, but lacks the summer humidity. That fall feel can wait until October where it belongs!
