NH1 Weather Insider with meteorologist Bill Gile for May 22, 2016
An area of low pressure be moving well southeast of Nantucket today while a cold front drops down from Canada and stalls out over northernmost NH. These 2 weather features will create a lot of clouds for us today with cooler air, especially closer to the coast. Most of the morning hours will be just cloudy with some spotty pockets of drizzle or isolated light shower. During the afternoon the front to the north will help to induce more in the way of shower activity. The greatest areas at risk for these developing showers will be in the western half of the state and up to the north. However, that doesn't mean southern areas will get away without seeing anything as pop up showers will still be a threat, but we could also see a few bright spots at times through the clouds as well. Highs will be coolest at the coast, 58-63 while interior sections climb into the mid 60s.
Skies will be drying up overnight as some of clouds clear away and Monday looks to be a partly sunny day, but an upper level trough is going to linger in the Northeast through Tuesday which means we'll still have a threat for pop up showers at any time, although Tuesday presents us with a better chance of that.
Temperatures will be comfortable in the 60's and Lower 70's Monday and Tuesday. After that a warming trend develops and we'll begin to get a summery feel for the Thursday-Saturday stretch as dewpoints begin to climb into the 50s while air temperatures rise into the mid 80s! Watch for a front that may be in the area Friday afternoon that could trigger a couple of thundershowers.
