548pm EDT Tuesday Jun 2 2020
Weak disturbances will bring chances of showers tonight and again Wednesday. Temperatures will moderate through the week with highs in the 80s in some areas by the end of the week. A cold front on Saturday brings a return to cooler weather.
Near Term - Until 6am Wednesday Morning
6pm Have adjusted Probability of Precipitation to current radar trend with some chance of showers into SW NH from the radar returns over Rutland. Looking ahead to tonight, we'll see clouds moving down from Quebec with a chance for showers. Have made only minor temperature variations.
Prev disc... Through this evening it will be dry with clouds slowly increasing from SW to NE. A weak disturbance aloft will bring widely scattered showers overnight with mostly cloudy skies. The best chance for showers will be over northeastern zones but not expecting much Quantitative Precipitation Forecast. It will not be as cold tonight with lows in the upper 40s to mid 50s.
Short Term - 6am Wednesday Morning Through Wednesday Night
Weak low pressure will be approaching from the NW and will try to push a warm front through our area Wednesday morning. Latest guidance suggest this warm front will struggle to make it north and east of the White Mountains. This will leave northern and eastern zones in the 60s for highs while south of the warm front in SW Maine and and southern New Hampshire will be in the mid 70s to near 80 for highs. This low will track close to overhead Wednesday afternoon bringing scattered showers, but again not much Quantitative Precipitation Forecast to alleviate the current dry spell.
The track of the low will leave the best instability to our southwest towards the Mid-Atlantic so not expecting much in the way of thunder. If the low tracks farther NE and more of the area can get in the warm sector then there could be some thunder with a cold front that moves through late Wednesday into Thursday morning. Precipitation chances drop off Wednesday night with lows in the upper 40s to upper 60s.
Long Term - Thursday Through Tuesday
Dry conditions are expected Thursday along with moderating temperatures. A southwest flow throughout a deep layer will allow for warm air advection. Good sunshine and mixing will occur as H8 temperatures reach +12C by the mid to late afternoon hours. This will allow for a quick rebound in temperatures after several days of near or below normal readings with high temperatures reaching the 70s across much of Maine to the mid 80s over southernmost New Hampshire.
The warmth and humidity will continue to climb on Friday as heigheights remain high along the east coast. A weak wave of low pressure will cross central Maine during this period, allowing southern areas to be in the warm sector. It is this day that the heat will top out with possibly a few communities in New Hampshire approaching 90 degrees for afternoon highs.
There will also be showers during the afternoon, but still the overall pattern remains relatively dry as this precipitation will be scattered in nature across the region. It will become unstable with thunderstorms developing for the afternoon and evening hours on Friday. Models suggest this precipitation may linger into Saturday as low pressure cuts across central portions of New England.
Sunday will be a return back to cooler weather conditions as low pressure intensifies as it enters the Canadian Maritimes. Cold air advection will begin on gusty northwesterly winds.
Weak low pressure passes over the area tomorrow with scattered SHRA (rain showers) with winds and seas staying below SCA thresholds.
Long Term...We get a shift to westerly flow Thursday behind the departing low/front, but it shifts to southwesterly again rather quickly. The southwest flow lasts through Friday, but should for the most part stay below advisory levels. A cold front on Saturday shifts winds around to the north behind it.
