A weak area of low pressure will approach the area from the southeast today, resulting in cooler temps, cloudier skies, and the chance for some showers. Showers are most likely near the coastline where some rain is already falling this morning. Nothing too heavy is expected, but with drought conditions expanding across the area, any moisture is welcome news.
This low pressure area will track just offshore today, and by this afternoon there should be much less in the way of precipitation and clouds will begin to slowly break up from southwest to northeast. Parts of the mountains especially closer to Quebec may actually manage a mostly sunny day farther from the storm’s center. As a result, temps will be warmest up in the north with highs in the mid 70s while most of the rest of the area is stuck in the upper 60s to low 70s. The cool spot today will be along the Midcoast where highs will struggle towards 60 under patchy fog and cool onshore flow.
