Clearing Out With Scattered Showers Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature one more day of unsettled weather before we set a boringness record over the next few days.

The main rain shield that dropped generally between a third and a half of an inch judging by radar estimates is already well off to our north and east. Our main weather player will now become a strong upper level low currently situated over NY. This upper low is combined with extra cold air aloft which, when on top of warm air at the surface, creates buoyancy and thus instability. This instability will create the threat for daytime heating showers this afternoon. The greatest threat for this is in the mountains but everyone should keep an eye out for some raindrops this afternoon.

Shown above is the HRRR model idea showing scattered showers developing this afternoon with the most intense activity centered around the mountains with southern areas seeing the most sporadic activity. Areas south of the MA Pike should expect to stay dry today while areas south of Portsmouth should expect a sprinkle or two at best. Maine and Northern NH/VT stand the best chance for respectable showers this afternoon.

The boring weather index will rise to record levels tomorrow and continue that way through Sunday when a cold front brings the chance for scattered showers. In the meantime, mid 70’s to low 80’s and sunny skies look to be the rule.
