We’re stuck on the sad side of a frontal boundary for one more day today which means we’ll have to continue dealing with abundant low clouds, fog, and muggy conditions. The fog will be thickest over eastern Maine where it will linger the longest. Fog is much thinner over NH and far western Maine where clear skies will return earlier in the day. As the fog lifts, breaks of sun will develop for just about everyone (except the Midcoast which will still be stuck with stratus). That sunshine will team up with the warm airmass still streaming into the region from the south to produce very warm temps for this time of year. High temps will range from the mid/upper 70s along the coast and way up north to the upper 80s in central/western parts of the area.
With warm moist air and an approaching cold front, we will have to entertain the possibility of some showers and storms this afternoon. The odds will be highest in NH and western Maine where sunshine emerges earlier in the day. Storms will be scattered fairly widely, so unfortunately many/most folks will stay dry (we need the rain!). But for those who do manage to sneak under a thunderstorm, a solid soaking will be in order as storms move slowly and have access to abundant moisture. Heavy rain and lightning will be the biggest threats with storms that develop this afternoon, though some gusty winds can’t be ruled out.
Showers and storms will fade quickly after sunset.
