Merrimack Valley Regional
Good morning everyone and Happy Halloween! Today looks to be like yesterday, with seasonable temperatures in the low 50s. Clouds will fill the sky during the afternoon ahead of our coastal system that will impact us this weekend.Tonight will not be as cool, with Lows in the low 40s, due to the clouds blocking any radiational cooling. Showers look to break out any time after midnight with a better chance for them as we go on into the early morning hours. Steady rain looks to move in during the afternoon Saturday and last into Sunday morning. Winds will be gutsy during this time period with peak gusts reaching between 35-42 mph. Highs Saturday look to be around 50, but will fall into the mid 40s on Sunday as cold air rushes into the region behind the storm. A wind shift to the Northwest behind the storm is a typical pattern which causes this cold air to rush into New England. Sunday looks to dry out in the afternoon as the storm moves into the Gulf of Maine, however it will remain breezy until nighttime with gusts still above 30 mph. Monday looks to be much cooler with Highs still only making it into the mid to upper 40s. There looks to be a slight warmup Tuesday and Wednesdays as high pressure and a ridge move over the region, bringing in southwest flow to the region, so temperatures could reach the 60s both days. Looking ahead cold air looks to move in again by the end of next week, which seems to be an ongoing pattern for the past couple of weeks, with warm mid-weeks and colder end of the weeks. Check back for futher updates and make sure to follow us @UMLWeatherCTR on twitter for updates! Have a sppoky, safe and Happy Halloween!!
