Today will feature unsettled weather as we sit on the edge of Hurricane Dorian. Radar imagery this morning shows a few areas of shower activity across the region, one associated with the upper level trough steering Dorian NE, and the other associated with the hurricane itself.
The trough showers are slowly fading as they meander through E NH, but will continue for a couple more hours due to favorable upper level dynamics. The main rain shield will keep trying to advance west for the next couple hours, but it will keep being beaten back by low level dry air. By the time we get to the later morning hours, this rain will be rapidly exiting to the east and most of the region will end up dry by this afternoon.
In addition to the showers, being on the edge of Dorian’s circulation means we’ll also get some some breezy winds. As of 7 AM, most sites in the eastern part of the region were recording 10-20 mph winds which is about what to expect for the rest of the day, though some gusts over 30 are possible especially along the Midcoast.
High temps today will range from 55 in the northeastern mountains to a little above 70 in SE NH.
