Beautiful Spring Weather On Tap For Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature beautiful spring weather as Canadian high pressure builds in from the northwest. Look for light WNW breezes to keep us dry and warm, all the way to the coastline as the effects of any marine circulation will be limited to the peninsulas/islands. Look for temps to warm to about 65 in the mountains and about 75 along the coastal plain. Sunny skies will be the rule today due to that high pressure area.

Morning Clouds And Showers Clear To Afternoon Sunshine

Hello everyone!

Today will feature the passage of a cold front, which will drive a change from morning clouds to afternoon sunshine. Along the front itself, some showers are expected in the mountains mid morning, and along the coast around lunchtime. Areas SW of Portland could see a rumble of thunder with those showers, but no severe weather is expected. Temps will continue to rise for most areas after the front passes as downsloping NW winds and clearing skies help combat the cooler incoming airmass with highs ranging from 60 in the north to around 80 on the southern coastal plain.

Rain Arrives Today

Hello everyone!

Morning sunshine across much of the state will give way to clouds by midday, and rain by this afternoon as a weak storm system approaches our area from the southwest. Look for rain to arrive in SW NH early this afternoon, with precip filling in across Maine by the evening. Temps will fall along a SW-NE gradient today as southwestern areas see little if any sunshine, and northeastern areas hold onto the clear skies for the longest. Expect highs to range from the mid 40’s southwest to around 60 near Augusta.

Another Cool And Dry Spring Day Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature more cool temps and dry conditions as Canadian high pressure builds in from the north. While high pressure is located to our north, low pressure is located to our south across the Mid Atlantic. This will set up a north-south gradient in cloudiness today, with the north remaining mostly sunny, and areas near the NH/MA border remaining mostly cloudy. Areas in between will see a mix of sun and clouds. Temps will be warmest in the foothills today, with highs there in the low 60’s. Temps along the coast and in the mountains will sit between 55 and 60 degrees. No precipitation is expected today.

Slowly Improving Weather Today

Hello everyone!

This morning, satellite imagery shows cloudy skies present across the vast majority of the region as a weak area of low pressure develops off the Mid Atlantic coast. These clouds will slowly pull southeast through the day today, resulting in slowly clearing skies. The mountains will be the first to see some sunny breaks, with the coastline hanging onto the clouds the longest.

While the upper level pattern drives cloud cover, a frontal boundary closer to the surface will drive temperatures today. Northwest of the front, cool air is moving in from Canada on northwesterly winds. Southeast of the front, warmer air is moving in on southwesterly winds. The front will slowly advance towards the coast today, with the mountains seeing cool temps just shy of 60 and the coastline seeing much warmer temps near 70.

Little if any precipitation is expected today as drier air works in from the north.

More Pleasant Spring Weather Today

Hello everyone!

Our recent stretch of lovely weather, albeit briefly interrupted by yesterday afternoon’s shower activity, will continue today as high pressure anchors itself to our north. A storm system will try to get going to our south today, and will spread clouds into the southern part of the area as it does so, but no precipitation is expected. Temps will range from the low 60’s north and east where sunshine will generally prevail to the low 50’s along the southern coastline where cloudiness and marine influences will conspire to keep temps down.

Low Clouds Burn Off To Another Nice Spring Day Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature some morning low cloudiness along the coastline, which will burn off to afternoon sunshine area wide. Temps will range from the low 70’s west to the mid 50’s along the midcoast, where a sea breeze will kick in this afternoon. Enjoy the beautiful weather, no precipitation is expected.
