A bite-sized storm system will impact the region today with showers and maybe even a thunderstorm or two thanks to instability that will arise as temperatures cool rapidly aloft. Some filtered sunshine is possible this morning, especially in northeastern parts of the area, but clouds will become widespread as the storm approaches. Most of the area is dry as of 6:30, but showers will arrive in southwestern NH shortly before proceeding northeast. Additional showers and storms will pop up this afternoon, with the greatest coverage and intensity seeming to fall between 1 and 6 PM. Showers during this time may produce small hail, graupel, gusty winds, and lightning in addition to bursts of heavy rain. The foothills and mountains stand the best chance at seeing showers transition into a steadier heavy rain event with a quick 0.5-1.0″ likely to fall this afternoon. That’s not a ton by itself, but combined with the rain we’ve seen over recent days it may support some minor flooding of the usual low-lying areas. High temps today will range from the low 40s along the Midcoast shoreline to the mid 50s in interior southern NH. Showers will taper off around sunset with the loss of daytime heating.
