Cool And Unsettled Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature cool and unsettled weather as an upper level low drifts overhead. Satellite imagery this morning shows sunny skies confined to the coastal plain, with overcast conditions elsewhere. Sunshine should briefly expand into the foothills this afternoon before instability from daytime heating results in more cloud development. That instability will also fuel some showers across the area, particularly in the foothills where the best combination of mild surface temps, cold air aloft, and upper level energy will be located. Some of these showers may produce a rumble of thunder along with graupel or small hail. Showers will die down quickly this evening as temps dip after sunset.

Highs will fall generally in the 50’s today, but temps in any one place will be highly dependent on the location of individual pop-up showers. Areas that see showers will see temps fall this afternoon, while areas that stay dry will also stay warmer.

Cloudy, Cool, And Rainy Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature cloudy skies, cool temps, and periods of rain as an upper level low approaches the region from the west. Satellite imagery shows a few limited areas of sunshine north and east of Augusta this morning, and these areas will see the warmest temps in the mid 50’s today. Areas farther SW that are already under cloud cover will see cooler temps, near the 50 degree mark. Rain is already falling across NH this morning, and it will slowly move east into Maine over the next few hours. Expect periods of rain on and off through the afternoon across the entire area, before precipitation becomes spottier in nature this evening.

Morning Clouds And Fog To Burn Off To Afternoon Sunshine Today

Hello everyone!

Low clouds and fog are the name of the game this morning as some low level moisture condensed with cooling temperatures last night. As the sun comes out and temps warm, that fog will burn off, and sunshine is expected to become the prevailing weather condition by midday. While most areas will stay dry through this afternoon, a few showers or even a rumble of thunder will drift into Western NH as a cold front approaches the region from the west. We’ll also have to watch areas along the coastline as a marine layer may develop with drizzle and fog moving ashore later this afternoon into this evening. Highs will be warm as strong heating develops, with temps ranging from 60 in the north to 70 in the south.

Increasing Clouds Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature increasing clouds and seasonable temps as an area of low pressure rapidly moves up the East Coast. Look for highs ranging from the mid 50’s in the west, where the fewest breaks of sun will be located this morning, and the mid 60’s farther east, where some sunshine this morning will warm things up a little more. Clouds will overspread the area from the west over the next few hours, with rain following this evening.

Rain This Morning, Sunshine This Afternoon

Hello everyone!

Today will feature a day split between dreary conditions, and much nicer Spring weather. This morning, radar imagery shows a round of steady rain moving our way from the south, and this will cross areas mostly east of the NH border this morning. By midday, rain will taper off and we’ll transition to sunnier weather downslope of the mountains. As the sun comes out, temps near the ground will spike into the low 60’s, while temps aloft fall. This contrast will set up instability that will fuel some pop up showers this afternoon.

Cooler With Showers Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature cooler temps and increased chances for rain as a weak storm system drifts nearby. Highs will range from 50 in the mountains to a little below 60 near Augusta, where a few breaks of sun are possible this morning before overcast takes over. Rain will arrive in the area from SW to NE this morning, and radar imagery shows some drops already falling over parts of NH. While much of the day will be wet, this won’t be a soaker of a storm, and there are likely to be some dry hours here and there as forcing from this system remains weak and disorganized.

Rain will move out tomorrow morning.

A Spring Stunner Today

Hello everyone!

High pressure has slid off to our east this morning, which will set up some warm SSW winds for today. This will be the culminating day of our stretch of beautiful spring weather before rain arrives tomorrow. Skies today will be mostly sunny, with the exception of some high clouds filtering in ahead of the aforementioned storm system. Highs will range from the mid 60’s north to the low 70’s south, with the coolest temps, in the 50’s, confined to the peninsulas of the midcoast where winds will have more of an onshore component. No precip is expected until tomorrow when rain will arrive from SW-NE.
