Today will feature continued cool weather and a few more clouds than we’re used to as an ocean storm develops off the Virginia Capes. This system will pass well to our south today, so clouds over southern areas is about all we’ll get from it. While I can’t entirely rule out a brief shower over far southern NH, I think the much safer bet is for dry weather to prevail across the area once again. The other spot where a shower can’t totally be ruled out is in the foothills/mountains north of Augusta/Waterville. Skies will get sunnier as you head farther north, so there will be a small bit of instability available this afternoon. Not enough to worry about storms, but enough to hold open the possibility for a brief shower.
Temps will range from the low 70s right along the coast to the upper 70s in the CT Valley and the hills north of Augusta.
I’ll be gone on another brief trip tomorrow morning, so won’t have a forecast update. The forecast for tomorrow looks a bit warmer as winds shift around to the south/southwest ahead of an approaching cold front. Highs will range from the mid 70s along the coast and up north to the mid 80s in the usual warm corridor of Waterville/Augusta/Lewiston
/Fryeburg/Manchester/Keene. Skies should be mostly sunny except for afternoon clouds that pop up especially over NH and the mountains of western ME. Some of those clouds will grow into showers and storms, but they likely won’t have access to enough instability or upper-level wind to become severe outside of a stray wind gust.
