Beautiful Fall Day Ahead

Good morning!

Today will be, for most, a beautiful day that has all the makings of your average fall day. It will be difficult for most to break 70 degrees, and some will not break 60. A westerly wind flow will prevail with winds 10-15 mph at times, occasionally gusting to 25 mph, and the direction will help make the beaches of Massachusetts some of the warmest locations. Highs will range from the upper 50s in northern New Hampshire, parts of northeast Vermont as well as its mountains, and far northern and northwest Maine, to the low 60s in western and southeastern Vermont, central and southwest New Hampshire, western Massachusetts, and central and northern Maine; mid 60s in central Massachusetts and the Connecticut Valley of MA, and areas near Concord, NH and some areas of central Maine. Upper 60s and some low 70s to prevail in southern Maine, southeast New Hampshire, eastern Massachusetts and southwest Connecticut as well as the Hartford area of north-central Connecticut.

Skies today will be mostly sunny to sunny in southern New England, and mostly cloudy across much of northern New England.

There will be a chance of showers this afternoon, primarily across northern New England. These showers will pull into the region from southern Quebec and give that area more rain, associated with the surface low that is starting to pull away from the region. No thunder expected at this time, but this could give nice additional rain. New England is in a mini-drought, could use all the water we can get. To the prior note, thunder cannot be 100% ruled out with the low pulling away and decent lift (especially downeast Maine), but again, not immediately likely.

For now, showers in northern Maine are pulling into New Brunswick and Quebec.528-9-31-15

Some precipitation is also possible in Vermont this morning, with scattered showers this morning, but the better chance this afternoon. In addition, scattered showers may move through western Massachusetts this morning with showers in and near east central New York.


Have a good day!

Hello! I'm Nathan Coram, a 19 year old meteorology student and weather geek, and am going into my junior year at UMass Lowell as a meteorology major. I am the current Vice President of the UML American Meteorological Society Local Student Chapter. Prior to at UML, I attended the Dracut school system for my K-12 years, having graduated from Dracut High in 2018. I first got into weather with the December 2008 ice storm, which knocked out my electricity for 4 days. I had no idea how it could be raining and becoming ice immediately, and how rain can knock out power. (Now I do - warm layer aloft, cold air at surface). But I didn't really get into it until the heat of July 2010 and specifically a few severe weather events during that month, followed by the year 2011, which featured several high profile weather events. Since then I have had a growing interest, and am hoping to make it into the meteorology field, preferably with NOAA/NWS. But for now, I'm blogging here, helping with the UML Weather Center social media, and tweeting about the weather on my own account as well. Thanks for visiting!
