Today will feature more unsettled weather conditions across the area as we’re stuck between two low pressure systems. We’ll be looking at onshore flow as a result of this setup, which will bring cloudy skies and some drizzle/fog to the coastal plain, and generally cooler temps for all. The one exception to this will be in SW NH where a warm front should move far enough north to change winds to the southwesterly direction, and allow for some warmer temps and brief breaks of sun. High temps along the coastline will sit in the low to mid 50’s. Low 60’s can be expected for most of the rest of the area, with low to mid 70’s in the SW NH warm spots.
The difference in temps/sunshine between western NH and Maine will contribute to a difference in precipitation forecast this afternoon/evening. A cold front currently in New York will be looking to generate some thunderstorm activity to our west this afternoon. The front will arrive with thunderstorms in tow along the CT River around 3-4 PM. The warmer temps in this area will allow the thunderstorms to remain widespread in coverage. As the storms move east and encounter the stable marine layer, they will begin to fall apart leaving only scattered showers for Maine this evening.
