I’m back in range of the internet now, which means I can return to the usual programming here on the blog. After thunderstorms along a cold front yesterday and Wednesday, we’ll be left with much nicer weather today. Westerly winds will be bringing in cooler and drier air to the region over the course of the day, so expect morning low clouds and fog to be burning off on the sooner side. Some residual moisture is noted across the region this morning, and as a result we’ll see some instability develop as cool air moves in faster aloft than it does at the surface.
The instability will be released by a weak upper level disturbance moving through the region this afternoon as well as upslope flow over the mountains. Not everyone will see a shower/storm, and in fact most of us should stay dry. For those who do end up under one of the taller clouds this afternoon, a quick burst of rain, some gusty winds, and some small hail can be expected. The best chance of storms will be up in the mountains, and the best chance of staying dry will be along the NH Seacoast.
Highs today will range from 70 in the mountains to a little above 80 in Southern NH. Westerly flow will keep any sea breeze attempts at bay, so the coastal plain will see temps get up into the mid/upper 70’s just like most of the foothills.
