Merrimack Valley Regional Weather Summary

Hello Merrimack Valley!!  

            Happy December!! November had many notably warm and cold days, mixed with rain, a few flurries and plenty of sunshine. The month ended on a rather chilly note with highs yesterday only in the upper 30s-ouch!!

            Today is a new day, and while we are expecting some colder temps, a batch of precipitation that is moving through during the day poses a threat for freezing rain across the Hudson Valley through counties in Eastern Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire.

            The system on tap for today is a preview for Wednesday’s event. Today’s rain will only total about ¼” but the air that comes with it will warm us up to the high 40s. As yesterday’s cold air and the incoming “warmer” air mass mix, today will be raw as we get the (for lack of a better word) “best of both worlds". The peak of the warmth comes in Wednesday as a bigger rainmaker moves in to bring upwards of ¾” of rain through Wednesday into Thursday.

            The end of the work week and this weekend look a bit brighter than today and tomorrow- and not nearly as cold and raw. We can expect lows in the upper 20s for most and highs hovering between mid 40s and 50! Pretty typical of El Nino!
