Today will feature warmer temps and sunnier skies as yesterday’s front slides offshore. It’s not in a hurry however and thus clouds will remain to some degree along the coast. Highs will range through the upper 70’s at the coast and mid 80’s inland. An isolated shower or two is possible in the mountains this afternoon but no widespread shower/storm activity is likely.
Today’s weather at the most basic level is rain-sun-rain. In fact the existence of the morning rain will cause the sun which will in turn cause the afternoon rain believe it or not.
Rain and fog this morning will be clearing out as we head toward midday due to a boundary shifting offshore. Meanwhile, warm moist air continues to surge northward as the remnants of TS Bonnie connect with an approaching front. We likely will see a period of sunshine this afternoon as the morning rain moves offshore taking with it the marine layer. This will destabilize the atmosphere by heating the surface. Storms will likely fire along the approaching front and there is some upper level support for convection in an 80kt jet streak at 250mb. Small hail and gusty winds are possible in any of the stronger storms. Highs today will range from the lower 70’s near the coast to upper 70’s inland but it will warmer due to high humidity.
Today will feature mainly cloudy skies, cool temps, and onshore breezes as a backdoor cold front swings through. Highs for most behind the front will be in the low 60’s while far western areas ahead of the front see another hot day in the 80’s. Scattered thunderstorms are possible in those areas.
The first dog day of summer is underway as a massive upper level ridge builds overhead. Look for highs in the low to mid 90’s inland with mid to upper 80’s in the far north and along the coast. Dewpoints will be in the 60’s area wide leading to even higher heat indices. All this heat and humidity will be creating some instability which can be harnessed by any sort of trigger. Currently a weak cold front/old outflow boundary dropping south and the sea breeze boundary that will be pushing north are our best shots for that storm trigger. Terrain will also help in this regard and thus everyone is at risk for a pop up shower or storm. There is no organized upper level support for storms today so they will remain scattered and pop up in nature. Keep an eye to the sky today.
Note on the 4km NAM simulated radar the scattered and hit or miss nature of the storms. We have plenty of gasoline but no spark so to speak which means severe weather is unlikely today and not everyone will see thunder.
If anyone’s at the WMC track meet today at Lake Region feel free to say hi. I’ll be the uncomfortable looking one by the discus or under the orange tent.
Today will feature mainly cloudy skies, cool temps, and the chance for rain showers. Marine air will be taking most of the area hostage today with the exception perhaps of Western NH communities. This means cooler temps with the chance for drizzle or fog. Highs for most are expected to remain at or below 70 due to this while any western areas that see sun are likely to jump into the mid to upper 70’s.
Hazy, hot, humid air arrives tomorrow just in time for the WMC track meet. Heavy rain with a flash flood risk is possible Sunday night and summer weather looks in charge from here on out with warm temps through the extended outlook.
Today will feature clear skies, light winds, and warm temps. Highs will rise into the 80’s for most with the warmest readings in the upper 80’s in the traditional SW NH warm spots. Cooler temps will be found along the coast where a sea breeze will shut heating off in the afternoon following the development of a sea breeze.
Today will feature morning fog burning off to afternoon sun and warm temps. Highs make it into the low to mid 80’s SW with mid to upper 70’s elsewhere except for perhaps the coast where a sea breeze looks to limit highs to the low to mid 70’s. Either way, a lovely day on tap. Look for the chance for some afternoon/evening thunderstorms as well with the greatest threat for those up north.
