More Fog Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature more fog¬†as moisture from the remnants of Irma continues to sit overhead. Today’s fog might be a tad more durable than yesterday’s fog, and there’s a chance that the coastal plain might not be able to get out of the low clouds and fog today. Temperature patterns will reflect this, with highs only getting into the 60’s along the coast. Warmer temps, in the 70’s, will be found inland and up near Canada.

More Morning Fog And Afternoon Sunshine

Hello everyone!

Remember yesterday? Yeah today is going to be basically the exact same. Moisture from the remnants of Irma will continue to support widespread fog this morning across the coastal plain and in the mountain valleys. Fog will slowly burn off later in the morning with sunny skies returning for the afternoon hours. Highs will warm into the mid 70’s north and low 80’s south. Cooler temps are expected along the coast where marine stratus will hang around the longest. We’ll remain mostly dry, with a few showers possible in the mountains as daytime heating in a moist airmass promotes some instability.

Dense Fog Burns Off To Afternoon Sunshine

Hello everyone!

Plenty of humid, sticky air remains in place today as Irma’s remnants continue to drift slowly through. The combination of moisture and cooling temperatures during the overnight hours results in dense fog, and plenty of it is being observed this morning across the state. Fog will burn off as temps rise this afternoon. Highs will range from the mid 70’s north to near 80 in the south. Skies will be mostly sunny this afternoon before fog once again sweeps inland this evening. We’ll stay mostly dry today with the exception of a possible brief shower in southern NH.

Remnants Of Irma Bring Clouds And Showers Today

Hello everyone!

Today’s forecast will be dominated by the remnants of once-mighty Hurricane Irma, now just a weak area of moisture and spin in the upper levels. The main thing we’ll get from Irma’s remnants will be cloud cover which satellite imagery indicates is pretty expansive across the southern half of the region. We’ll also get showers and potentially a thunderstorm or two as the upper level disturbance drifts by overhead. There are already some ongoing showers this morning as seen on radar, but lightning analysis indicates that strike activity is somewhere between minimal and nonexistent. Lightning may pick back up as we get a little bit of daytime heating through the cloud cover this afternoon. The best chance for a shower strong enough to produce lightning will be in the SW part of the region. Areas NE of Augusta and Bethel are likely to remain dry.

Daytime heating through the clouds will bring temps up, but not nearly as much as yesterday. Highs will range from the low 70’s north to around 80 in SW NH. Cooler temps are also possible along the coast where southerly winds will be blowing off the Gulf of Maine. Those southerly winds bringing in cooler and moisture laden air will likely contribute to the development of some fog along the coastline today.

Increasing Clouds Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature morning sunshine gradually becoming obscured by afternoon cloudiness as the remnants of once-mighty hurricane Irma approach from the west. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will form over New Hampshire this afternoon, before weakening and moving into Maine tonight. A slightly better chance for showers/thunderstorms is present tomorrow as the remnant circulation passes overhead. The clouds and showers will bring temps down a little bit, with highs in the low 70’s north and around 80 south.

Warm And Quiet Today

Hello everyone!

Today will feature sunny skies, light winds, and warm temps as high pressure remains locked in place overhead. Highs will range from the mid 70’s north to the mid 80’s south. No precipitation is expected and there will be little in the way of clouds as well. Not a whole lot else to say. Enjoy the weather!
