Last update: 10/05 - 4:45 PM

We had periods of light showers today and it remained overcast and cool, with high temps only in the 50s.
Thunderstorms continue to develop over the waters remaining mostly stationary this afternoon, slowly drifting onshore over the New Hampshire seacoast and coastal York/Cumberland counties. Instability looks to drop off quickly over land with any thunderstorms weakening once they move onshore. Heavier showers move over the midcoast overnight bringing more rain to the area before clearing out near daybreak tomorrow. Cloud cover along the coast will keep temperatures warmer tonight with lows near 50 along the coast with clear skies to the north allowing temperatures to drop into the low 40s to upper 30s in the north.

The coastal low that has been sitting off to the south over the last several days will finally start moving off to the east Thursday with winds turning from the southwest over the day. Showers across southern NH and coastal Maine will dissipate through the night with skies clearing in the early morning. Some fog may develop in the early morning along the Connecticut River valley, northern valleys, and some coastal bays with higher dewpoints and cool temperatures overnight. With sunshine and southwesterly flow, temperatures will warm into the 70s for most areas tomorrow, breaking the cool south warm north trend that had been in place over the last several days. Clouds begin moving in from the west tomorrow night as a cold front starts approaching bringing showers for Friday.
Starting Friday...a northern stream low over the Ottawa Valley will swing to a negative tilt, quickly sending a cold front across New England during the day. Warm southwesterly flow ahead of this will allow temperatures to warm into the mid 70s in the southern interior of NH up into SW ME by mid-day. Elsewhere temperatures will be more subdued in the 60s thanks to onshore flow/lingering low clouds over the Midcoast and greater cloud cover/shower chances in the mountains and further west.

Regional Synopsis

SYNOPSIS...
High pressure will keep most of the area dry through Thursday night, but a slow-moving area of low pressure passing to our south brings some showers across southern New Hampshire through today and eventually the Maine coast later today and this evening before exiting east into the Atlantic. A strong cold front brings rain showers to the region Friday and Friday night with much cooler temperatures over the weekend behind the front.

SYNOPSIS...
The persistent low south of New England will lift toward Nova Scotia tonight. Rain showers will gradually taper off from west to east. Any lingering thunderstorms should end this evening. Dry and much warmer weather Thursday and lingers into Friday. Then a cold front crosses the region late Fri/Fri evening, ushering in dry, but blustery and cool weather for the weekend. Dry weather is likely into Columbus Day, along with moderating temperatures and less wind.

NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...

Highlights

* Scattered showers gradually tapering off tonight. Should see
any isolated thunderstorms come to an end during the evening.

* Light winds and clearing skies will result in patchy fog
development.

SHORT TERM /THURSDAY THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/...

Highlights

* Dry and quiet weather on Thursday with temps roughly 5-10
degrees warmer than normal.

* Dry for most Thursday night, but a spot shower not out of the
question across western MA.

LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/...

* Mild into the first half of Friday, with 70-75 highs likely

* Frontal passage late Fri, blustery and much cooler Fri night

* Holiday Weekend - Dry but cooler than normal, with Sat the
coolest day, then moderating somewhat Sun into Columbus Day

Manchester NH - 10/05 - 8:24 AM

Split weather forecast from north to south due to the remnants of Ian stuck in place through the mid-Atlantic states. It turns warmer and brighter for the end of the week.

Today is similar to Tuesday with the most sunshine north and west. Highs there in the mid to upper 60s. Southern and eastern areas are stuck with more clouds and scattered showers. Highs in the low 60s.

Skies will start to clear tonight as the remnants of Ian finally start to pull away, lows will be in the 40s with some fog by morning.

Warmer air and brighter skies return with highs approaching 70 degrees by Thursday afternoon.

A front approaches on Friday with some sunshine out of ahead of it. Northern and western areas could get some late day showers. Highs will again be either side of 70 degrees.

Much cooler air arrives following the front for the weekend. On Saturday and Sunday, highs will only be in the 50s and a strong northwest breeze. Sunny skies south, while from the White Mountains and north there will be scattered showers each day.
