Warming Trend Continues Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature continued increases in temps as a warmer airmass moves into the region from the southwest. Expect morning low clouds and patchy fog east of the Turnpike to lift gradually from SW to NE during the coming hours as temps rise into the low 80’s in the north/along the Midcoast and the low 90’s in the typical SW warm spots. As far as precipitation goes, today will follow the example set by recent days with showers and thunderstorms popping up in the afternoon across NH before moving east into Maine during the evening. These storms could produce some damaging wind gusts and small hail but the overall severe threat will be on the lower side. All storms will produce heavy rain and lightning regardless of their severity in terms of wind/hail. Storms will gradually weaken this after sunset.

More Summery Weather Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature more in the way of summery weather as August slowly rolls along. Temps will be warm, ranging from 75 in the north to 85 in the south, and skies will be partly to mostly sunny away from the Midcoast where low clouds and some fog will be slow to burn off. Once we get to the afternoon, the chance for showers and thunderstorms will increase in New Hampshire where sunshine will build up a modest pool of instability. Some of the stronger cells may produce a damaging wind gust or two but otherwise the severe threat will be on the lower side. Showers and storms will weaken as they slide east into Maine this evening.

Warming Trend Begins Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature the beginning of a slow upward trend in temperatures as our luck with NW flow and nice Canadian air finally runs out. The warmer and more humid air will be ushered in by a batch of showers and thunderstorms which are in progress this morning across inland areas. These showers will move swiftly northeast during the morning, exiting NE areas between 10 and noon. After that, most places stay dry today with the exception of the mountains where a shower or thunderstorm will remain possible through the evening.

Temps today will be a bit warmer than yesterday, ranging from the low 70’s in the mountains to around 80 for most inland/coastal areas to 85 in southern NH. Dew points will also move back up above 60 which means you’ll feel the humidity as well. Unfortunately, we still have a bit of summer weather yet to go.

Another Really Nice Day Today

Hello everyone!

Today will continue where yesterday left off in terms of really nice weather. Skies will be mostly sunny, temperatures will be comfortable, and dew points will be low. Look for highs ranging from around 70 in the north to around 80 in the south. There’s a low chance that a shower forming in the Hudson River valley might drift into SW NH this evening, but even if it does, it would be brief and without much impact. Otherwise, we can all look forward to another dry day.

Enjoy the beautiful weather!

Drier Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature drier weather both in terms of precipitation and humidity. We’ll be left with much less of both as the cold front responsible for touching off showers and storms yesterday drifts ever so slowly further to the south. There’s a very slight chance of a shower this afternoon up in the northern mountains, but basically everyone will stay dry today. Dew points will also be dropping into the 50’s which will make things a bit more comfortable if you’re headed outside. Skies today will start off on the sunnier side and end up with a few more clouds especially in the northwestern part of the area.

High temps will remain right near the long term average today, ranging from around 70 in the north to the low 80’s in the south.

A Bit Cooler Today Along With More Showers

Hello everyone!

A cold front has drifted very lazily into the northern part of the region this morning, and its southward motion today could easily be outdone by a moderately ambitious biker. The front seems similarly unmotivated to push the air in front of it upwards, which would be key to the development of widespread precipitation.

Despite its shortcomings, our #sad cold front will cause just enough of a stir today to produce some showers and thunderstorms. The first round of showers is in progress now across Southern NH. These showers are quite weak, and won’t have any impacts. The potentially more impactful showers will develop along the cold front this afternoon beginning in the 1-2 PM timeframe. These will feature much heavier rain along with the chance for lightning. The best chance for these heavier showers will be in southern and central regions. Any showers and storms will either dissipate or move offshore following sunset.

High temps today will range from around 70 in the north to a few degrees above 80 in the south.

Back To Warmer And More Unsettled Weather Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature warmer temps, slightly higher humidity, and the renewed chance for some showers and thunderstorms. All these changes will be due to the approach of a weak cold front from Quebec. The front won’t make it very far south during daylight hours today, which means that the best chance of storms will be north of Route 2. The rest of the area, particularly farther west in NH, may see some showers this evening but by then their intensity will be waning.

Skies will generally have more clouds than sun, but most of the area (except perhaps for the far north) will see at least some brighter hours. Temps will range from 70 in the north to 75 along the midcoast to 85 in the typical interior SW warm spots.
