Thick cloud cover has rolled into the region this morning ahead of a cold front in the Saint Lawrence Valley. As that front slides east, it will bring a few rounds of showers to the region today. The first and perhaps most widespread round of showers is in progress currently across the mountains. Because we have so much cloud cover this morning, there won’t be enough instability for these showers to produce much more than some rain and possibly a brief rumble of thunder.
As the front drifts through this afternoon, showers will become more isolated and skies will begin to brighten especially in NH and western parts of Maine. Southerly onshore flow and plenty of clouds/showers will keep temps on the cooler side today. Highs will range from the low/mid 60s in much of Maine to low/mid 70s in much of NH.
Heat and humidity will return with a vengeance this weekend.
