Actually Nice Weather Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature weather that is, perhaps remarkably for the last few weeks, actually nice. Look for morning low clouds and fog over the coastal plain to burn off in the next few hours, leaving mostly sunny skies across the area for the rest of the day. That sunshine will push temps into the upper 50’s for the north and the lower 70’s for the typical interior SW warm spots. Cooler temps will also be found along the coast where a sea breeze will develop this afternoon.

Get out and enjoy the lovely weather while it’s here, another cool and unsettled stretch appears to be headed our way in the next several days.

A Little Warmer And A Little Brighter Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature slightly warmer temps and slightly sunnier skies as southwesterly flow develops ahead of a cold front over Quebec. While unfortunately I can’t promise bluebird skies until tomorrow, most areas should leave yesterday’s deep gray behind. Temps will respond accordingly away from the coast, rising into the upper 60’s/low 70’s for most. The midcoast will remain much chillier in the low to mid 50’s. Some showers will move into northern areas this evening, but the vast majority of the day will be dry.

Cool And Cloudy Today

Hello everyone!

We’ll be returning to a familiar pattern today with cool temps and widespread cloud cover behind a departing storm system. Given that the storm is off to our east, we’ll be mostly precip free today with the exception of some drizzle this morning. The clouds will be most widespread this morning, and we’ll likely see some spots enjoying sunnier skies by this evening. The best odds for sunshine will be found across northern and western areas, with the coastal plain most likely to remain cloudy. High temps will be kept cool by the clouds and light onshore flow, ranging from the low to mid 50’s across most of the coastal plain and foothills to the low 60’s along the CT river where some breaks of sun are more likely.

Back To The Chilly And Unsettled Weather Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature a brief return to the cooler and unsettled pattern we’ve all grown so tired of in recent weeks as low pressure tracks off to our south. Morning sunny breaks in eastern parts of the area will become obscured by cloud cover over the next couple hours, and overcast skies will continue through sunset. Rain will arrive from west to east during the midday hours, beginning in W NH between 9 and 11 AM before moving into Maine between 12 and 2 this afternoon. Rain will slowly taper off this evening from west to east.

A Very Pleasant Late Spring Day Today

Hello everyone!

A cold front has moved offshore as of this morning, and we’ll get to enjoy a nearly perfect day of weather today as a result. Expect mostly sunny skies across the area, with the only exception being far northwestern parts of the mountains near the Canadian border. Temps will be on the cooler side thanks to the northern source of the incoming airmass. Look for highs ranging from 50 in the north to a little over 70 in the south. Get out and enjoy the wonderful weather, we’ve earned it!

Showers And Thunderstorms Develop In Northeastern Areas This Afternoon

Hello everyone!

Today will feature the chance for showers and thunderstorms across northeastern parts of the area as a weak cold front slides through. Areas of clouds rain associated with the warm front will continue to impact coastal areas for the next few hours. Then we’ll see drier and sunnier conditions moving in from the west for the midday hours. That sunshine will push temps up into the 70’s for most areas away from the mountains and immediate coast. A few of the typical SW warm spots will make a run at 80. Those warm temps will combine with slightly muggier dew points to fuel the incoming thunderstorms this afternoon. Storms will develop around noon in the northern mountains before working their way southeast through the afternoon. Not everyone will get a storm, but those that do will experience heavy rain, lightning, and gusty winds. At this point, no organized severe weather is expected, but some storms could become severe if more sunshine develops in those northeastern spots. As you move SW, there’s less in the way of upper level dynamics to initiate and support thunderstorms, which should leave places SW of Portland mostly dry.

Increasing Clouds Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature a sunny start and a cloudy conclusion as a warm front approaches the region from the west. After some patchy fog this morning burns off, just about everyone should see some sunshine before clouds slowly move in from the west this afternoon. The morning sunshine will be enough to get temps to rise into the upper 60’s to lower 70’s for everyone but the coast, where a sea breeze will keep things a bit cooler.

Most of the day will remain dry before showers develop later this evening from west to east.
