Cool And Unsettled Weather Continues Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature more cool temps and cloudy skies as yesterday’s storm drifts slowly through the Bay of Fundy. Expect NW breezes to continue on the back side of that storm, though they won’t be as strong as they were yesterday. The NW winds will also set up a classic upslope/downslope pattern for both cloud cover and temperatures. The mountains will see temps in the low to mid 40’s under mostly cloudy skies while the coastline will enjoy temps in the mid 50’s under partly to mostly sunny skies. Aside from a brief shower or two in the mountains this morning, today will be a dry one across the area.

Storm Slowly Subsides Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature generally cool and unsettled weather as the center of last night’s storm meanders through the area. The worst of the storm is done as the low level jet that brought last night’s powerful winds moves up into New Brunswick. We’ll be stuck with the leftovers today in the form of clouds, showers, and some breezy conditions. The best chance for showers and gusty NW winds will be in southwestern NH, SW of the low’s center. Most of Maine will enjoy copious drizzle today as low level moisture sticks around while the mid/upper levels dry out. A few heavier showers are possible along the coastal plain this evening as the low moves east.

Temps will be on the chillier side for the whole region with highs in the low 40’s over the CT valley. The rest of the area will see temps generally falling from current readings in the mid 50’s to the upper 40’s by this evening.

Clouds Return Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature the return of overcast skies as our first major Nor’easter of the season begins developing to our southwest. Thankfully, we’ll enjoy a couple hours of sunshine this morning before the clouds arrive from west to east during the midday hours. High temps today will be a few degrees warmer as mild air drifts in on southeasterly winds. The mountains will top out in the low to mid 50’s while southern areas get up into the mid 60’s. You’ll notice a breeze picking up out of the east-southeast this evening, but otherwise today will be a fairly classic “calm before the storm” day. Showers will break out during the evening across much of NH, but won’t become heavy until later tonight.

The heavy rain and strong winds will arrive from the southwest tonight as low pressure rapidly intensifies on approach to Long Island. The heaviest rain and strongest wind will be focused in a band that will arrive in Southern NH between 2 and 3 AM before moving north through Portland around 6 AM and eventually weakening north of Waterville between 9 and 10 AM. This band will bring torrential downpours and wind gusts between 45 and 55 mph, which could lead to some scattered power outages. I’ll have more detailed info on tomorrow’s weather around this time tomorrow morning.

Cool And Clear Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature cool temps and clear skies as high pressure passes just to our south. High temps will range from around 50 in the north to around 60 in the south, and no precipitation is expected. Otherwise, there’s not much else to say about today’s weather. Get outside and enjoy it! Our first strong storm of the season will arrive tomorrow night into Thursday morning with heavy rain and gusty winds.

Sunshine Returns Today

Hello everyone!

After several days of cloudy skies due to that pesky offshore low, we’ll finally see sunshine return to the region today as drier air moves in from the west. Expect sunshine to develop first in the foothills and along the coastal plain before expanding into the mountains this afternoon/evening. High temps will range from 55 in the mountains to 65 along the coast. No precip is expected. Get out there and enjoy the foliage!

Another Cloudy Day Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature another day of cool temps and cloudy skies as the coastal low we’ve been dealing with over the past few days continues to meander offshore. That low actually was named Subtropical Storm Melissa yesterday evening by the NHC, but the distinction won’t mean anything to us.

Today will generally be drier than yesterday, though some showers will impact parts of the coastline this morning. High temps will remain on the cooler side, ranging from 50 in the north to 60 in far SW NH. We’ll finally get some sunshine tomorrow as a cold front passes through and kicks Melissa out to sea.

More Cool And Cloudy Weather Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature weather quite similar to what we saw yesterday as a coastal storm continues to meander to our southeast. Most of the region can expect overcast skies for much of the day today, though the CT River valley and adjacent parts of western NH should get a few hours of sunshine this morning. Showers will make it a little farther north today, but won’t be either long-lasting or very heavy. The best chance for showers will be south of Lewiston during the mid-afternoon hours.

High temps will remain on the cooler side today due to NE flow and thick clouds. Expect temps in the mid to upper 50’s across the entire area, with a few low 60’s possible in far western NH.
