Merrimack Valley Regional
Good morning everyone! This week, we see a return of cooler
weather to the region. Today, high pressure builds over the region and
gives us a fair day with highs in the mid 50's. As the day goes on, the
high slips off the coast and allows for our next system to move in. A
disturbance that comes off the Great Lakes looks to bring us a
prolonged amount of rain for the rest of the week. The system south of
New England. The low pressure system then moves slowly. Tuesday through
Thursday looks to be our best periods for rainfall. At times, we could
see heavy rainfall. The region could see a couple inches of rain by the
time the system begins to pull away Friday. We could also see some
gusty winds with the system. By Friday, the system begins to pull away,
and conditions begin to improve, but the threat of showers still
lingers. Looking at the weekend, we see primarily drier conditions,
with the exception being Saturday night/early Sunday as a cold front
moves through the area. Have a great day everyone!
