Today will feature deteriorating weather conditions as a coastal storm moves up from the Mid Atlantic. Yes, you read that right. A coastal storm is advancing up the coast this morning, in the middle of June. If we had this same atmospheric setup in the wintertime, I’d be talking about a widespread 8-16″ of snow. Alas, you can’t always get what you want.
In any case, patchy morning sunshine this morning over northeastern areas will quickly fade to overcast skies by midday. Rain will begin falling in southern NH in the next 1-2 hours before advancing swiftly northward. By noon it will be raining in nearly all of NH and parts of SW ME. By 2 PM, everyone in the region will be seeing rain. Rain will fall heavily at times, but shouldn’t accumulate to more than a half inch or so, which will keep any flooding concerns minimal.
Between the clouds and strengthening onshore flow, today’s high temps will be on the cooler side ranging from 45 in the White Mountains to 60 NE of Waterville where morning sunshine will hang on the longest.
