NH1 First Alert Weather: September 21, 2017
Written by NH1 Weather on .
Jose will remain stationary south of Cape Cod on Thursday and Friday. Meanwhile a large ridge high pressure will slowly build south across northern New England, the combination of Jose to the south and high pressure to the north will produce some gusty winds at times along the coast again Thursday.
The ridge of high pressure will allow skies to become partly to mostly sunny! The heavy surf advisory continues along the coast through Friday as the long period swells from the southeast continue with seas running 5-10 feet and the high potential for rip currents. Temps will reach well into the 70s today. It will be a bit cooler with an onshore wind penetrating on Friday.
While Jose is parked south of Nantucket through much of the weekend, it will be weakening. At the same time, ridging will move in from the west. This will allow for dry weather Friday through at least Monday with well above normal temperatures.
In fact, highs may approach records in Concord on Sunday and Monday with highs in the 80s! Onshore winds will keep it cooler at the coast.
For now, mid-upper 80s inland will be possible toward the end of the weekend! After Monday, the remnants of Jose could come back north while getting absorbed into a southward-moving cold front across our area. If that occurs, showery weather would be possible but this seems a bit unlikely at this point.
