Last update: 8/15 - 5:43 PM

It remained mostly sunny through the afternoon here in Peterborough, NH. After a cool start (49 degrees) temps rose to 82 degrees. A LONG thermometer. There were a few showers in eastern NY stae on radar this afternoon.
Visible satellite imagery this afternoon shows a widespread cumulus field across the region along with some high altitude cirrus streaming in from southwest to northeast across southern locations. A sea breeze is continuing to push inland and some scattered showers have developed along this boundary. Current temperatures across the area currently range from the upper 70s to lower 80s in most locations, and a few additional degrees of warming are possible through the remainder of the afternoon. A few additional showers may also develop, especially across the interior but most places will remain dry.

Any remaining showers will end by early this evening as we begin to lose daytime heating and skies will become clear to partly cloudy overnight. Low temperatures will range from the lower 50s across northern valley sites to the middle and upper 50s elsewhere. Patchy fog is also likely to develop overnight, especially across the valleys where temperatures cool to near their dew points as well across the coastal plain. 

Morning fog will quickly burn off tomorrow morning by around 8-9 AM leading to partly cloudy skies through the first half of the day. During the afternoon and evening, cloud cover will begin to increase some, due to both diurnal heating along with the influence of an approaching area of low pressure that will be moving northward over the western Atlantic. Similar to today there could be an isolated to widely scattered shower during the afternoon but most locations will likely remain dry. High temperatures will range from the middle 70s across the north and mountains to the lower 80s in southern NH. A sea breeze is also likely to once again form during the second half of the day, capping temperatures behind it.

Skies will then become mostly cloudy Tuesday night as low pressure begins to approach the southern New England waters and there will be increasing chances for scattered showers after midnight, especially across eastern areas. The increase in moisture may also allow for the development of fog once again with overnight lows falling into the 50s across the north to the lower 60s along the coast.

So here we are, two days out, and the models still can’t resolve the storm track for Tuesday night and Wednesday. Stay tuned.

Regional Synopsis

SYNOPSIS...
Mostly dry weather continues through tomorrow outside of isolated afternoon showers across the interior. Low pressure will form well offshore late tomorrow and then tracks northward through the western Atlantic. Depending on how far west the system tracks, northern New England could see a soaking rainfall late Wednesday into Thursday or more in the way of showers if the system stays too far offshore. High pressure then looks to build in Friday into the weekend.

SYNOPSIS...
High pressure over southeast Canada and developing low pressure well south of New England, will continue to maintain mainly dry and seasonable weather through Tuesday. By Tuesday night into Wednesday night, low pressure makes its closest approach, resulting in cooler weather and a chance of rain, especially for eastern Massachusetts. As the low lifts north into Maine, a drying and warming trend develops Thursday. Then heat returns Friday and Saturday, followed by increasing humidity Sunday and Monday. Dry weather is expected Friday and Saturday, then a chance of scattered showers/ thunderstorms Sunday with an approaching warm front, then a cold front early next week. Although, widespread rain is unlikely.

LONG TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
345 PM update...

Highlights:

* Best chance for widespread rain appears Wed/Wed ngt in eastern MA

* Heat returns Fri & Sat w/highs 85-90, then warm & humid Sun & Mon

* Drying trend Thu, dry Thu, Fri & Sat. Chance of scattered
convection Sun with warm front, then cold front early next week

Manchester NH - 8/15 - 6:10 AM

After a beautiful weekend it looks like the pleasant weather continues into the early part of the week ahead of some shower chances midweek.

Today and Tuesday will be partly sunny with a low chance of a pop up shower in the afternoon. Highs will be in the mid 70s along the coast and upper 70s to low 80s elsewhere with a light breeze each afternoon.

The next system will pass to our east on Wednesday. While we do need some steady rain, it looks most likely we'll just see a few scattered showers. The maps do still differ on exactly how this plays out, so stay tuned for updates in case anything changes.

Partial sunshine Thursday will set up warmer temps Friday and Saturday.
