NH1 Weather Insider with Joe Joyce: September 17, 2015

What is and whatever should be. A classic Led Zeppelin which finally makes sense to me. The weather that is...Great! Whatever comes down the road will be. There is nothing we can do about it, so just enjoy every day for the blessing that it is! Well this weather pattern is about as great as weather can possibly be for this time of year. Record highs are in the upper 80's to near 90 Thursday. Some locals may approach record heat in the sunshine and light SW winds. Highs on Thursday will be a few degrees warmer than Wednesday. Highs will be climbing into the mid-upper 80's during the afternoon with the hottest temps being recorded in SNH and the Merrimack Valley.
A huge upper level ridge remains in place across the eastern half of the nation through the end of the week. Sunshine will hold steady with highs in the 80's into the weekend. A cold front will sweep through Saturday night with some clouds and possibly a shower? High pressure will build behind this front Sunday with increasing sunshine, but temperatures will be about 10 degrees cooler under NW winds from Canada. Highs on Sunday will be in the Lwr 70's and that is where they will remain to start off the week. High pressure with dry, cooler seasonal air and sunshine Monday and Tuesday. Winds will be shifting onshore to the east Tuesday to keeps temps in the 60's at the coast. We will have to watch the midweek for some increasing clouds from the south and the risk for a few showers by Wednesday...but there are no promises for much rain in this dry pattern.
Enjoy the warmth while it is out there. Cooler air is building in Canada. It will begin to push farther south next week. In fact, I am not seeing much more warmth in the pattern for the rest of the month of September. If warm air does return in October...Chances are it will not be as warm as what is happening now. So this really could be it for that true summer feel until next summer. Don't let the moment pass. There will be plenty of time for enjoying that cooler fall feel.
