Merrimack Valley Regional Weather Summary

The winds were so strong last night that they woke me up several times! Winds will continue to be very strong today. A very tight pressure gradient over New England will allow for excellent mixing all the way up to 850mb, taping into the high speed upper level winds. Sustained winds of 20-25 mph with gusts over 40 will make it hard to hold onto your hat today! The dry air combined with the gusty winds raises some brush fire concerns, but mostly to the southwest. Winds will slowly weaken overnight tonight and tomorrow. Tomorrow will be a very nice day, with mild weather and lots of sunshine. Some unsettled weather will move in for Saturday as a rather potent frontal system passes by. Some decent instability could result in a few rumbles of thunder and heavy rain on Satuday morning. The second half of the weekend looks just fine with seasonable temps and mostly sunny skies. Don't get blown away today!
