Cloudy, Cool, And Showery Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature mainly cloudy skies, cool temps, and the chance for showers. Showers will be most likely across SW part of the area, closer to an upper low spinning over the Indiana-Ohio border. Moisture on the east side of that low is spinning towards us aloft while at the surface, NE winds are helping to lock in dry air. The result will be that plenty of rain will fall but not a lot will make it to the ground. The moisture associated with the low will be moving up and over the low level cold/dry airmass which will result in overrunning precip. Almost everyone will see raindrops at some point today, perhaps with the exception of the northern mountains, however the day will be far from a washout. Southern areas will see the most rain with a quarter to possibly a half inch expected.

Highs will rise into the low to mid 60’s in far NE sections where some breaks of sun are possible. Temps will be cooler farther SW where completely overcast skies are expected with highs in the low to mid 50’s likely there. NE breezes will again be noticeable and that combined with cool temps, cloudy skies, and showery weather will yield a raw feeling to the day. That’s Maine in the fall for ya.

Increasing Clouds Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature morning sun fading to afternoon clouds as some moisture wrapping around a low to our south tries to work in. SW areas will see the most clouds while NE areas could hold onto sun into this afternoon. The difference in cloud cover will explain the difference in high temps with the warmest weather in the north today featuring highs around 65. Southern NH, under the most clouds, will see highs around 60. The rest of the area will be between 60 and 65. Some rain will likely start falling from the clouds this afternoon but due to lots of low/mid level dry air, not a whole lot of it will make it to the ground. Still, don’t be shocked to feel a few drops here or there in southern areas this afternoon into this evening.

Still Cool Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature a mix of sun and clouds for sky cover as temps once again struggle to reach 60. The balance of sun and clouds will favor more sun than clouds in the mountains and more clouds than sun along the coast. NE breezes will be responsible, bringing authentically dry air to the mountains while gathering some ocean moisture along the coast. Highs will be fairly uniform throughout the region today, a few degrees on either side of 60.

Cloudy And Cooler Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature mainly cloudy skies, cooler temps, and the slight chance for a rain shower this morning. Radar is showing some showers over the mountains and foothills that appear to be associated with a pocket of moisture at about 2500 feet (925mb). Otherwise, strong Canadian high pressure will build in from the north providing dry N/NE flow at the surface. Aloft, SW winds will transport enough moisture into the region to keep skies mainly cloudy though some sun is a possibility especially NE. Highs under the clouds and NE flow will be cool, with temps in the mid to upper 50’s north and upper 50’s to low 60’s south.

Welcome Showers This Morning, Drier By This Evening

Hello everyone!

Showers are currently moving through the area and will drop a quick but beneficial tenth-quarter inch of water as they truck along to the NE. Drier weather is in store for this afternoon and evening and some partial sun is likely to break out across the western half of the area. Highs will be much warmer than recent days with temps rising into the mid to upper 60’s north and upper 60’s to low 70’s south.

Another Cool And Mainly Clear Day Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature mainly sunny skies, cool temps, and lighter NW breezes. Look for a very chilly start with nearly everyone below 40 as of 6 AM. Areas away from the immediate coast are likely to see frost and the mountains are likely to see a hard freeze. Temps will rise into the mid to upper 50’s north and low to mid 60’s south. Skies will be mainly sunny but a few high clouds are possible in the afternoon as a front to our west slowly moves in our direction. Winds will be much quieter than yesterday as high pressure settles in directly overhead.

Feeling Even More Like Fall Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature mainly sunny skies, breezy NW winds, and cool temps as low pressure develops to our NE. Look for highs in the low to mid 50’s north and upper 50’s to lower 60’s south. Some upslope clouds are likely in the mountains but otherwise sunny skies are expected. NW winds are likely to gust over 20-25 mph today so secure any loose items that might blow around the yard in that type of wind.
