Today will feature the return of cloudier weather as a storm system slowly drifts towards our region from the west. Currently, satellite imagery shows just a few mid/high clouds streaming through northern New England, but a thicker cloud deck lurks back in Ontario. After a few mostly sunny hours this morning, expect that thicker cloud deck to arrive this afternoon. Before it does, we should be able to enjoy a pretty nice morning except for southwestern NH which seems to be stuck under a thicker low-level cloud deck at the moment.
Before the thicker clouds arrive, expect mostly sunny skies to support warm temps ranging from 60 in the mountains and western NH where clouds arrive first to around 70 along the coastal plain of Maine. The Maine coast will, as usual, cool off later this afternoon as a sea breeze develops and moves inland.
While this next system will bring plenty of clouds to the region, it doesn’t look like its precipitation will be able to move this far north as dry Canadian air rushes south in the lower levels of the atmosphere. That said, a brief sprinkle can’t be ruled out over western NH this evening or tonight.
