Warmer For Some, Cooler For Others, With PM Rain

Good morning!

Today’s temperatures will range between 44 and 73. The highs below 50 will be reserved for central/northern Maine, northern NH and northeast Vermont, while temps in the 70s will be mainly reserved for Connecticut, with some localized instances in eastern MA and adjacent south central NH not 100% out of the cards. Generally expect 50-60 in central NH, southern Maine (some above 60 possible), and most of Vermont, and 60-70 in Massachusetts and Rhode Island (mainly at/above 64).

Expect this to be accompanied by mostly cloudy to cloudy skies.

Expect a line of rain this afternoon and evening – starting between Noon and 5 PM (earliest west), with more widespread rain in northern New England beginning this morning; while action in southern New England will be also widespread, it will be a bit more abbreviated. Expect rain for all to wind down between 8 and 10 PM. In addition to areas of heavy rain, gusty winds up to 40 mph are possible, as some isolated thunderstorms are possible; the NWS Taunton technical discussion notes the potential for a brief and isolated tornado if low level lapse rates and instability are higher than current guidance indicates. However, I don’t see any reason to be concerned right now; just keep an eye to the skies, and if they become necessary, the warnings.

Enjoy your Friday!

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!
