We finally saw some rain early this morning from the coastal storm system that is now up in northern Maine. Not much, but anything is welcome. 
Rain showers will pivot around the swirling low pressure system to our north and bring a few showers here into Southern NH this morning. These will taper off, with bouts of sunshine and clouds today with highs only in the mid 70s. Farther north, showers will fall off and on all day. A gusty wind out of the NW all day today.
Quiet tonight with lows in the mid 50s with skies clearing late.
A sunny Friday, much warmer, with highs in the low to mid 80s, and light winds.
Clear Friday night with lows around 60 degrees.

Regional Synopsis

SYNOPSIS...
A low pressure system will drift northeast this morning with shower activity clearing as the day progresses. Temperatures will trend warmer Friday and into the weekend as high pressure slowly builds over the region. A southwesterly flow will bring in moisture laden air, but any rain will be hit or miss.

SYNOPSIS...
Drying trend continues into Thursday with clearing expected from south to north. Low shot at some cold pool showers forming west of the I-495 corridor. Seasonably cool conditions Thursday night give way to a warming trend Friday, where temperatures may eclipse the 90 degree mark. A ridge of high pressure will result in dry and very warm weather this weekend. Increasing humidity along with the threat for a round or two of scattered showers and a few thunderstorms are possible sometime Monday through Wednesday, but not expecting a washout by any means.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY/...

Highlights...

* Dry and very warm this weekend but with manageable humidity for
August standards

* Increasing humidity with scattered showers and a few t-storms
possible at times Mon through Wed, but not a washout by any means

Manchester NH - 8/18 - 7:00 AM

An area of low pressure is moving toward the north this morning. Lingering showers will start to clear from south to north over the next several hours. Summer warmth returns for Friday and the weekend. The weather pattern will turn unsettled again early next week.

Widespread showers continue across the state this morning, but the trend will be for drier conditions in central and southern New Hampshire during the afternoon. Showers will likely take all day to clear out across the North Country. Some late day breaks of sun are possible south, where temperatures should climb back into the mid to upper 70s.

Friday looks partly sunny and warmer ahead of a mostly dry and very warm weekend (coolest right near the coast). Highs will be in the 80s both afternoons.

Some shower and thunderstorm chances return by early next week as a series of systems move toward New England.
