Another storm system is on the way this evening, and mild air will be moving up the coast on its eastern flank today. Look for southwesterly winds to pick up throughout the day, boosting temps into the high 50s north and mid/high 60s in southern NH. The Midcoast will be considerably cooler, in the mid/upper 40s, due to influences from the cold Gulf of Maine.
Any sunshine you see this morning will be short-lived as clouds move into the region from the west ahead of the front. Patchy showers/drizzle may develop in some areas this afternoon, but the main round of rain will hold off until after sunset. We’re scheduled to pick up another 0.5-1.5″ of rain with this system which is great news for our lingering precipitation deficit from a dry winter. That said, with a few other recent systems helping to make up for lost time and the seasonal melt of our snowpack in the mountains, rivers are about as full as they should be this time of year. Thus additional rain may lead to some minor flooding in the most flood-prone areas tonight and tomorrow. No major issues are expected.
Rain will end with some rumbles of thunder along the coast and some snowflakes up in the mountains tomorrow.
