Merrimack Valley Regional Weather Summary

     Good morning! After spectacular weather this weekend, a back door cold front has ushered in a much cooler and moist airmass overnight. A weak pocket of upper level energy will slowly drift to the south of the region over the next 2 days, causing the periodic risk of showers and periods of drizzle Today through Thursday. Weak flow at the surface out of the northeast will continue to moisten the lower levels of the atmosphere, helping to lock in a very shallow and stable airmass. As a result, mostly cloudy conditions will prevail with minimal temperature variation. By Thursday night, the combination of the weak upper level disturbance exiting the region to the east, as well as an approaching frontal system over the Great Lakes will cause surface winds to turn to the south to southeast. After a cool start on Friday morning, temperatures will rebound to the upper 60s under mostly sunny skies. By Saturday morning, an approaching cold front will be preceded by a period of moderate to heavy rain during the day Saturday. An early look at Sunday and Monday reveals seasonable but cool temperatures and dry conditions.
