Strong Temperature Rebound Today

Good morning!

With high pressure and a northeasterly flow in control, today’s chilly start will recover nicely, to a mostly sunny day with highs in the upper 60s and low 70s, with locally cooler spots in the higher elevations, with mainly light winds.

Have a good day!

Finally Fall-Like

Good morning!

As a cold front pushes through this morning, bringing some showers to eastern Maine right now, the current sticky dewpoints will be replaced by much drier air – upper 30s to mid 40s inland and 45-50 at the coast for dewpoints, except 50s in southeast MA. As for actual air temperature, most will be between the mid 60s and low 70s. All are starting off in at least the mid 60s, but the mountainous regions will actually drop to the upper 50s and low 60s as the cold front comes through. Just about everybody else will stay fairly steady temperature-wise with the current outside temperature, with minor fluctuations; as noted, the big drop will be in dewpoint The warmest temperatures will be south of the Mass. Pike/I-90, where some mid 70s are possible. Today will start off cloudy, with clearing likely later this morning to at least partly sunny skies, with mostly sunny to sunny skies becoming the rule by this evening.

We will shift to a northerly wind, mainly light.

Have a good day!

Another Hot Day Expected

Good morning!

Today will feature sunny skies and light west and southwest winds.

Highs will mainly be in the low to mid 80s, with some upper 70s to 80 in the same spots we mentioned yesterday. A light afternoon seabreeze may drop the coastal temperatures to the upper 70s in the afternoon.

The warmest temperatures will be around and near the Merrimack River in MA and NH, with mid to upper 80s expected.

Have a good day!

Hot Day Forthcoming

Good morning!

Not much to say here, except it’ll be hot, but not as hot as most of last week. Today will be sunny and dry, and the only exception is several models (including the HRRR and NAM) are showing a scattered shower or two moving through northern Maine this evening.

With a west to southwest wind remaining light, temperatures will be in the mid 80s to 90 for most, with low to mid 80s in portions of the Berkshires and Green Mountains, and northern Maine. As for the coast, in south-coastal southern New England (including Cape Cod and the Islands) expect upper 70s to low 80s, and low to mid 80s elsewhere.

Dewpoints should remain in the 50s for most.

Have a good day!

Another Sunny One – A Bit Warmer

Good morning!

There may be a few scattered clouds today in far southern New England, but it will be otherwise another full-sun day. With a westerly flow in place, highs for most will be in the low to mid 80s (warmest along the Merrimack River).

Highs will instead be in the upper 70s in northern Maine, northeast New Hampshire, northern Vermont, and the Green Mountains.

Have a good day!

Warm, Dry Day Ahead

Good morning!

Today will feature a return to the warm and dry pattern – albeit nowhere close to last week’s heat. A west wind will occur again, with winds light for most in SNE, and in NNE, winds to around 10 mph, occasional gusts to 20 mph; however this may be confined to the mountains.

Skies today will be sunny throughout New England. The main player will be high pressure centered in the PA/NJ/SE NY region, bringing us these warm and dry conditions. Not expecting any shower threat today, plain and simple.

Today’s temps bring us from the lower 70s across northern Maine, northern New Hampshire, and northeast/north-central, the mountainous regions, and southern Vermont, and far western Massachusetts. Mid 70s in west central New Hampshire, a few spots in northern and central Maine, and parts of Connecticut’s Litchfield Hills. Upper 70s central Massachusetts, southwest and much of central New Hampshire, eastern Cape Cod, Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard and Block Island. Low to isolated mid 80s in eastern and southeast Massachusetts, western Cape Cod, most of Connecticut, and south central and southeast New Hampshire. Southern Maine as well as all of Rhode Island (excluding Block Island, see above) will be between the upper 70s and low 80s.

Owing to the aforementioned westerly flow, the coast will barely be cooler than the land nearby (eastern Cape Cod the exception, as well as the MA/RI Islands). Should be a nice beach day if you both like the beach and have today off.

Big feature of today: LOW HUMIDITY. Sure, it will be a touch warm, but it will still be a beautiful day to go outside if you can.

We will go into a warming trend for the next few days, followed by a potential return to fall-like weather late this weekend and especially into early next week. The cooldown is inevitable, considering the lowering sun angle, a ridge won’t mean 80s eternally.

The unfortunate part about this, is this will be an extremely boring stretch for weather geeks. Hey, at least I have homework to do, and hockey is coming back!

Have a good day!

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.

Cloudy With Afternoon Showers and Evening Rain

Good morning!

After last night’s rain pulled out we were left with a cloudy New England this morning. Before we get to this afternoon’s shower/storm risk, temperatures today will be mostly in the 60s, with isolated upper 50s in the northern New England mountains and isolated low 70s some parts of Eastern Massachusetts with more widespread readings of 70-75 across Connecticut, Rhode Island and southeast Massachusetts; rare instance where Cape Cod and the MA/RI islands will be one of the warmest spots. Skies will generally be cloudy today.

This morning and early afternoon should be dry. Mid-afternoon is where things get interesting with a complex of low pressures; a mesolow will form in eastern NY and another low will pass just SE of Nantucket. This will allow a chance of scattered thunderstorms this afternoon and more widespread rain this evening into the early overnight. A very scattered storm may go severe with a gust of damaging wind and/or a brief, weak tornado not fully out of the question; however there is barely any instability, and the risk of any severe weather as such is extremely low but non-zero. The areas of low pressure however will allow that area of widespread showers to form as the evening goes on, with areas of heavy rain possible.

Have a good day!

Beautiful Saturday

Good morning!

I had wanted to begin my morning blogging routine at a slightly later time for weekends but this is late, due to routine bloodwork earlier this morning.

Anyways, after some early fog which is finally burning off, an amazing day is on tap regionwide associated with an area of high pressure. Mostly sunny to sunny skies will be the rule, and highs to range between the lower 70s in northern Maine, to the mid 70s across much of northern New England as well as interior southeast Massachusetts; also include the Monadnocks and Worcester Hills in NH/MA. Low to mid 70s at the coast region-wide. Upper 70s across most of western and northeast Massachusetts, interior southeast New Hampshire and interior southwest Maine, as well as the Burlington, Vermont area. Warmest temps, around 80, in the Connecticut and Merrimack Valleys.

Clouds will be on the increase late today as widespread showers begin moving into Western New England late this evening and into tonight, associated with the low bringing tomorrow’s weather.

Have a great day!
