Merrimack Valley Regional Weather Summary

Hello Merrimack Valley!!

Another beautiful, fall New England forecast is in the works!!! Chilly and lots of sunshine!!

After Hurricane Joaquin slammed the Carolinas with upwards of TWO FEET of rain, she moved away from the eastern sea board and is now about 700 miles out to sea.

The past few days have been very cool and fall like thanks to a pocket of high pressure sitting over the VT/Canada border. The high pressure crept its way south a bit overnight and has put an end to the chilly wind coming from the North East which has kept us cool and dry.

The high pressure now sits just south of New England bringing in a warmer Northwest wind allowing temps to rebound from the chilly AM starts!! Bring a jacket for the AM commute (and those sunglasses with all the sunshine!) and ready to shed the layers by the afternoon with temps will flirt with 70 in some spots!! Wednesday also sets up to be a beautiful day with another chilly start but we do manage to squeeze some warm temps with highs hitting the 70s again!

With a cold front moving through the region on Thursday we have a chilly start to the day (high 30s/low 40s) and while we are still dry, dry, dry, temps will struggle to make it to the mid 60s. Friday seems to be our chance for a break in the dry seasonable air with a chance of showers in the afternoon-not a blockbuster event, totals about ¼” inch. Highs in the upper 60s.

The chance of showers falls off just in time for a dry, crisp fall weekend!! With temps in the mid 60s, and plentiful sunshine, it will be a perfect weekend for apple picking, foliage hiking, or a trip to the fair!!  

Be sure to keep up with the latest weather updates for your favorite fall activities and follow us on Twitter (@UMLWeatherCenter) and Facebook (UMLWeatherCtr)!!

Happy Trails!!
