Today will feature mainly sunny skies, slightly warmer temps, and the continued need for the raincoat/umbrella to be on standby. Look for high temps in the 70’s for most with a few low 80’s possible across SW NH. Much sunnier skies are expected today with just partly cloudy skies expected. The exception to this will be Southern NH and where a band of showers is currently moving through along with some overcast skies.
As for precip, there will be two phases. The first phase will primarily be to our south over MA, CT, and RI where a band of showers and thunderstorms has brought some minor flooding to Springfield MA. The northern edge of that will clip Southern NH and perhaps the southern tip of York County but will otherwise remain safely south of us. The other impact that will stretch only slightly farther north will be some clouds which should move out by mid to late morning.
The second phase of precip will arrive in the form of pop up showers this afternoon. This morning’s HRRR run does a good job of showing that at any one time, most places stay dry while only a few see rain. This means that outdoor plans are a go if you’re prepared to either duck inside for 5 minutes or get a little wet should a shower find your favorite recreational spot. No storms are expected.
Expect a warming trend through late week with stifling heat and humidity returning for Friday and Saturday before storms Saturday evening usher in cool, Canadian air for the beginning of next week.
