Our sunrise soakah is in full swing east of the ME/NH state line as I write this around 7:30. Heavy rain is ongoing especially near the coast, where some rumbles of thunder are possible east of Brunswick. The heavy rain may cause some localized ponding on roads and flooding of the usual low-lying areas, but no major issues are expected. Rapid improvement in weather conditions is expected midday as drier air moves in from the southwest. Skies will clear from southwest to northeast and temps will rise into the mid to upper 50s with some higher temps near 60 likely closer to the MA border and cooler temps in the mid 40s likely up in the north and mountains. A stray shower can’t be ruled out in southern NH as daytime heating supports some instability with cooler air aloft, but the bulk of any precip today will fall this morning.
