Weekend Outlook: January 15-18, 2021

Our extended stretch of dry weather is nearing an end, with some rain on the way.

The system that brought in some rain and snow showers earlier today is pulling away and we’ll have some clearing tonight. However, it won’t last too long, as clouds will stream back in on Friday ahead of low pressure moving into the Great Lakes. This is the same system that produced heavy rain and strong winds in the Pacific Northwest a few days ago, and strong winds across the Plains and Rockies last night and today. Around here, the biggest threat will be rainfall.

The system will move into the Midwest on Friday, sending a front well ahead of it towards the East Coast. A secondary area of low pressure will develop along the front in the Mid-Atlantic states and head northward along the front. This will bring rain into the region Friday night into Saturday, some of which could be heavy. We could see a little snow to start, especially across the higher elevations from central Massachusetts into southwestern New Hampshire, but temperatures should be mild, especially on Saturday as a warm front moves through. How far north the warm front gets is still a bit of a question, but it looks like most of our area should get into the mild air, with temperatures well into the 40s Saturday morning and early afternoon, possibly topping 50 in spots. While it will still be breezy, especially along the South Coast behind the warm front, the strongest winds will likely be on Sunday, behind a cold front.

Saturday’s system could produce a decent amount of rain around here. Image provided by weathermodels.com

The rain ends Saturday afternoon with the passage of that cold front, but skies probably won’t completely clear. High pressure will try to build in at the surface, but an upper-level low pressure system will make its way eastward, crossing our area later Sunday into Monday. This will keep plenty of clouds around, but with drier air moving in, only a few rain or snow showers are possible, mainly on Monday.

Thursday night: Becoming partly cloudy. Low 24-31.

Friday: Some morning sun, then clouds return. High 37-44.

Friday night: Cloudy and becoming breezy with showers developing, possibly some wet snow from the hills of Worcester County into the Monadnocks of southwestern New Hampshire. Low 30-37 during the evening, then temperatures rise after midnight.

Saturday: Cloudy and windy in the morning with rain likely, possibly heavy at times, ending in the afternoon, possibly followed by some late-day clearing. High 44-51.

Saturday night: Becoming partly cloudy and breezy. Low 27-34.

Sunday: Partly sunny and breezy. High 37-44.

Sunday night: Partly cloudy. Low 23-30.

Monday: Intervals of sun and clouds, still breezy, slight chance for a sprinkle or a flurry. High 34-41.

Weekend Outlook: January 8-11, 2021

We’ve got a very quiet weather pattern across the region for the next several days.

High pressure is providing us plenty of sunshine afternoon. Loop provided by the College of DuPage.

A chilly night is expected tonight with high pressure in control. Clear skies and light winds will allow for some radiational cooling, with some places dropping into the teens. Friday features sunshine, but a weak cold front will move through. It will have little moisture associated with it, so aside from a few snow showers in northern New England, you won’t really notice it. For Saturday, a storm system will pass well to the south, sending some clouds our way, but little else, as it will be too far south to have any other impacts. High pressure then returns for Sunday and Monday with dry and seasonably cool conditions.

Tranquil weather is expected through the weekend. Loop provided by WeatherBell.

Thursday night: Clear skies. Low 17-24.

Friday: Plenty of sunshine. High 33-40.

Friday night: Clear to partly cloudy. Low 18-25.

Saturday: A mix of sun and clouds. High 30-37.

Saturday night: Partly cloudy. Low 19-26.

Sunday: Partly sunny. High 31-38.

Sunday night: Partly cloudy. Low 16-23.

Monday: Sunshine and some afternoon clouds. High 33-40.

New Year’s Weekend Outlook: December 31, 2020 – January 4, 2021

As we get into the final days of the year and start of a new year, we’ve got a fairly complex weather pattern shaping up across the region.

A warm front will move across the region tonight, but little precipitation will accompany it. What you will notice is that temperatures will bottom out this evening, then rise as we head through the overnight hours. Low pressure will move into the St. Lawrence Valley early on Thursday, dragging a cold front across the region during the morning. Some showers will accompany that front, but they’ll be gone by midday. High pressure then builds in, allowing skies to clear out in the evening. So, if you have any New Year’s Eve plans, weather won’t be an issue, though it will be on the cold side, as you’d expect at the end of December.

Temperatures should be in the middle to upper 20s under clear to partly cloudy skies at midnight Thursday night. Image provided by WeatherBell.

New Year’s Day starts off sunny and chilly, but clouds stream back in during the afternoon ahead of low pressure moving into the Great Lakes. We’ll see precipitation moving in towards midnight, but with cold air in place, things will be tricky. Along the coast, we’re looking at just a chilly rain, but across interior sections, it’ll be a different story. We’ll likely see it start off as snow, with some minor accumulations (an inch or two), especially from the Merrimack Valley and central Massachusetts into southern New Hampshire.

A little snow may accumulate early Saturday morning across the region, Image provided by WeatherBell.

Eventually, a change to sleet and freezing rain is expected across the interior as milder air moves in aloft. Milder air will also move in at the surface, so precipitation should change over to plain rain everywhere by Saturday morning, but before that happens, a period of freezing rain could result in some slippery travel across the interior before daybreak Saturday. The rain ends by midday, then we’ll see some clearing by late afternoon. This will also be short-lived.

Clouds come back in on Sunday as a storm system starts to move up the East Coast. There is still plenty of uncertainty with the track of this system, but a period snow or rain is looking likely for late Sunday into early Monday, especially across southeastern Massachusetts. We should have more clarity on this system once the Friday night system moves past the region.

There are discrepancies among the models in regards to our Sunday night storm. Images provided by Pivotal Weather.

Wednesday night: Cloudy and breezy with showers developing after midnight. Low 31-38 during the evening, temperatures rise overnight.

Thursday: Showers ending in the morning, some clearing develops late in the day. High 41-48.

New Year’s Eve: Becoming clear to partly cloudy. Low 19-26.

New Year’s Day: Sunny in the morning, clouds return in the afternoon. High 34-41.

Friday night: Cloudy with rain developing after midnight across the South Coast. Inland, snow will develop, changing to sleet, freezing rain, and eventually plain rain from south to north. Low 28-35 during the evening, temperatures rise overnight.

Saturday: Any remaining wintry mix across the interior changes to plain rain early, ending by midday. Some sunny breaks develop in the afternoon. High 35-42 north and west of I-495, 43-50 elsewhere.

Sunday night: Partly cloudy. Low 25-32.

Sunday: Cloudy with rain or snow possible late in the day. High 36-43.

Sunday night: Cloudy with a chance of rain or snow. Low 27-34.

Monday: Rain or snow ending in the morning, some clearing late in the day. High 35-42.

Christmas Weekend Outlook: December 24-28, 2020

We’ve got a couple of busy days coming up, and not just because it’s Christmas.

Low pressure is moving across Iowa this afternoon, producing blizzard conditions across parts of the Upper Midwest and Northern Plains. That system will impact us over the next few days, but in a different way. As it moves toward the Great Lakes, it will start to send milder air into the region tonight, but more noticeably tomorrow. Southerly winds will gradually increase tomorrow, becoming quite strong tomorrow night and into Christmas morning. Sustained winds of 15-30 mph are likely, with wind gusts to 50-60 mph or more possible. This could result in power outages, so don’t be surprised if you wake up Christmas morning and can’t charge up those new electronics you found under the tree.

Damaging wind gusts are possible across much of the region Thursday night and Christmas morning. Image provided by WeatherBell.

Wind isn’t the only issue we’ll have. Rain will move in Thursday night, and continue into Christmas Day. While it may not be raining the entire time, there will be some bands of heavy rain, with rainfall totals in excess of an inch possible in many areas. The rain, combined with temperatures climbing above 50, will help to melt a lot of the snow that is on the ground. This could result in some flooding issues in some spots, but widespread flooding doesn’t look likely.

As this storm system moves into southeastern Canada, it will drag a strong cold front across the region on Christmas Day. Although the day will start mild, likely in the 50s for most of us, temperatures will drop during the afternoon. If the cold air moves in fast enough and the precipitation is slower to move out, we could even see some wet snowflakes before everything winds down late in the day. At night, temperatures will continue to drop, meaning that the wet roads will likely start to ice over if they are not treated, as they won’t have had much time to dry before the cold air moves in.

High pressure builds in for the weekend with dry and seasonably cold conditions. It may still be a bit breezy on Saturday, adding to the chill, but Sunday may also be a few degrees milder. By Monday, we’ll be watching another storm system passing to our west, with some showers possible.

Wednesday night: Becoming partly to mostly cloudy. Low 23-30 this evening, but temperatures may start to rise a bit after midnight.

Christmas Eve: Mostly cloudy, becoming breezy in the afternoon. High 48-55.

Thursday night: Cloudy and windy with showers developing, becoming steady rain late at night. Temperatures gradually rise overnight.

Christmas Day: Cloudy with rain likely, possibly heavy at times, windy in the morning. High 53-60 in the morning, temperatures drop during the afternoon.

Friday night: Mostly cloudy and breezy with any lingering showers ending in the evening, possibly mixed with a few wet snowflakes, some clearing is possible late at night. Low 22-29.

Saturday: Becoming partly to mostly sunny. High 28-35 (welcome back to December).

Saturday night: Clear skies. Low 19-26.

Sunday: Partly to mostly sunny. High 32-39.

Sunday night: Increasing clouds. Low 22-29.

Monday: Mostly cloudy and breezy with a few showers possible. High 42-49.

Weekly Outlook: December 21-27, 2020

We’ve reached the last full week of the year, and also the winter solstice. Winter officially begins at 5:02am, so by the time most of you read this, astronomical winter will have begun. That doesn’t mean it will feel like winter every day this week.

If you’re heading out early this morning, use a little extra caution, as there may be some black ice, especially away from the coastline. If you’re down the Cape, there’s some rain around this morning, but it should be gone by midday as a low pressure area pulls away from the region. For the rest of us, today will just be a cloudy day, with temperatures fairly typical of late December. We may get a few breaks in the clouds this evening, which would allow you to view the conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter. Otherwise, it’ll remain mostly cloudy overnight and into Tuesday as another weak system moves through with a few rain or snow showers. Once that system moves through, we clear out for Wednesday as high pressure builds in, but it will be chilly.

This brings us to Christmas Eve. Low pressure will be heading into the Great Lakes, with milder air moving in ahead of it. Many of the forecast models are showing the potential for strong winds, heavy rainfall, and unseasonably warm temperatures for Christmas Eve into early on Christmas Day before a strong cold front moves across the region. Given the recent performance of the models this far in advance, plus some of the model trends we’ve already seen, we’re a bit skeptical. Yes, we expect it to be mild with some rain. However, we’re not yet convinced that temperatures will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s with 1-2 inches of rain (or more), like many of the models are showing. The system will drag a strong cold front through on Christmas morning, with temperatures dropping quickly on Christmas Day. Now, it won’t be anything like Christmas Day in 1980, but it will be enough for any untreated surfaces to ice up, and possibly for some snow showers. We’ll obviously have a better idea about this system in our Weekend Outlook, which will likely be published on Wednesday this week.

Most of the models are showing the potential for 1-2 inches of rain (or more) Christmas Eve into Christmas Day. Images provided by Pivotal Weather.

(For those wondering, the temperature in Boston on Christmas Day, 1980 was 35 degrees at midnight. A strong cold front moved through just after midnight, and the temperature dropped to -7 by 10am, and only got back up to -2 in the afternoon. Add in the northwest winds of 10-20 mph all day long and it was a brutally cold day.)

Behind that system, high pressure will build in next weekend with drier and colder weather, which is pretty much what you’d expect in late December. There are some indications that our active pattern may continue into next week with more storminess possible.

Monday: Showers end across Cape Cod in the morning, otherwise, plenty of clouds with a few sunny breaks High 35-42.

Monday night: Partly to mostly cloudy. Low 23-30.

Tuesday: Intervals of clouds and sunshine with a rain or snow shower possible. High 35-42.

Tuesday night: Clear to partly cloudy. Low 21-28.

Wednesday: Sunshine fades behind increasing late-day clouds. High 33-40.

Christmas Eve: Cloudy and breezy with showers possible late in the day, and a period of steady rain likely at night. High 43-50.

Christmas Day: Rain may change to snow before ending around midday. High 45-52 early, then temperatures quickly drop in the afternoon.

Saturday: Partly sunny. High 26-33.

Sunday: Partly to mostly sunny. High 27-34.

Weekend Outlook: December 11-14, 2020

Another stormy weekend is on tap, but it shouldn’t be anywhere near as bad as last weekend was.

High pressure will remain in control of the region into Friday, with generally dry weather and moderating temperatures. However, low pressure will be heading towards the Great Lakes, sending cloudcover our way, though Friday will still be a decent day around here, by mid-December standards at least.

We still need more rain to alleviate drought conditions, and this weekend will help. Image provided by the National Drought Mitigation Center.

By Saturday, that low will be moving across the Midwest, resulting in a few things happening around here. Some rain will move in late in the day and at night, likely ending Sunday morning. While it’s not expected to be heavy, it will make for a wet Saturday night and Sunday morning. The storm will also send a warm front toward the region, but this is where things get tricky, because we’ll also have a strong high pressure area in southeastern Canada. That high will send cooler air down into the region – meteorologists refer to this as “cold air damming”, as both the mountains to the west and the warm front to the south act as a dam to prevent the cold air from advancing. That warm front likely doesn’t get much past the Mass Pike Saturday night, which keeps areas north of the Pike on the cool side. Meanwhile, a wave of low pressure will ride along that front, keeping the cold air locked in from southern New Hampshire into the Merrimack Valley. Temperatures will likely be in the middle to upper 30s in these areas, but if they are just a few degrees cooler, then we may have to worry about the rain becoming freezing rain. If you’ve got plans in these areas Saturday night, keep an eye on the conditions before you head out.

Most of the models show the warm air staying south of the Mass Pike Saturday evening. Images provided by Pivotal Weather.

By Sunday, the main low pressure area moves into southeastern Canada, dragging a frontal system across the region. As winds shift into the west, it will scour the cold air out, bringing milder air in. For areas south of the Mass Pike, where the warm air will already be in place, temperatures will actually cool off a bit behind the front on Sunday. High pressure returns on Monday with cooler air drier conditions.

Finally, we’ll just address this now, before the hype gets out of control. Yes, there are some models that show the potential for a snowstorm towards the middle to latter half of next week. However, not all of the models show that. Plus, most of the models have done a relatively poor job forecast beyond about 3-4 days out for quite a while now. So yes, there is the “potential” for something next week. There’s also the “potential” that the Patriots will win the Super Bowl again this season. That’s all it is for now – potential. We’ll address it in a bit more detail in out Weekly Outlook Monday morning, if the potential is still there.

Thursday night: Clear to partly cloudy. Low 21-28.

Friday: Sunshine dimmed by afternoon high clouds. High 45-52.

Friday night: Thickening clouds. Low 27-34 north of the Mass Pike, 35-42 south of the Pike.

Saturday: Cloudy with showers developing by late afternoon. High 41-48 north of the Mass Pike, 49-56 south of the Pike.

Saturday night: Scattered showers, possibly some freezing rain across parts of southern New Hampshire. Low 32-39 north of the Mass Pike, 40-47 south of the Pike.

Sunday: Any lingering showers end in the morning, some afternoon sunny breaks are possible. High 47-54.

Sunday night: Partly cloudy. Low 30-37.

Monday: Partly sunny. High 37-44.

Weekend Outlook: December 4-7, 2020

It looks like we’ve got some snow coming in this weekend for at least part of the region, but that’s only part of a complex forecast for the next few days.

High pressure will slide offshore later today and tonight while clouds start to stream in ahead of a cold front. That front may produce a few showers on Friday, but most of us will just see some clouds as the front moves through. However, this will set the stage for the next storm.

Enjoy the mild weather on Friday, because changes are coming. Image provided by Weathermodels.com

Low pressure currently near the Louisiana coastline will head northeastward tonight, moving up the Appalachians on Friday, then off the Mid-Atlantic coastline on Saturday. At the same time, an upper-level disturbance in Canada will dive southeastward. As these two systems meet up or “phase”, they will create a strengthening low pressure system. The track of that low will determine several things, but the two main ones are how much precipitation will fall, and whether it will be rain or snow. Most of the models bring the storm near Cape Cod or just south of it, but there are others that bring it across southeastern Massachusetts. The farther north and west the low travels, the farther north and west the rain/snow line ends up.

There are still some significant differences among the models for the weekend storm. Images provided by Pivotal Weather

Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, let’s get to what we are fairly sure about. Rain will develop across the region early Saturday morning, and may fall heavy at times during the day on Saturday. This will help put another dent in our long-term rainfall deficit. As the low passes by, northerly winds will bring cooler air into the region. There’s not a lot of “cold” air to begin with, but temperatures will likely drop to near or below freezing, which will allow for a changeover to snow, at least north and west of Boston. That changeover is likely to occur Saturday night, but at least one model has it change over much earlier – during the afternoon. Others only have the changeover occur as the precipitation winds down and ends Sunday morning, and at least one other doesn’t have it changeover at all. Obviously when that changeover occurs will have an impact on how much snow (if any) accumulates.

Whether it’s all rain or rain to snow, this will be another heavy precipitation producer. Image provided by WeatherBell.

Right now, we’re expecting a change to snow from northwest to southeast Saturday evening and night, with everything winding down around daybreak Sunday. The snow could be heavy at times during Saturday evening, but should taper off at night as the system starts to pull away. Several inches could accumulate well north and west of Boston, but this is still a bit uncertain. We’re not going to forecast any amounts yet, as there’s not enough confidence yet to come up with specific amounts. We’ll do another blog post just on the storm tomorrow, and at that point we’ll have a specific snowfall forecast.

Skies should start to clear out Sunday afternoon as gusty west to northwest winds will bring drier air in behind the storm. High pressure will start to build in on Monday, but with an upper-level low pressure system moving through, we’ll still have some clouds, and a few rain or snow showers are possible.

Thursday night: Becoming mostly cloudy. Low 32-39.

Friday: Mostly cloudy, becoming breezy, chance for a few showers, mainly south of the Mass Pike during the afternoon. High 49-56.

Friday night: Cloudy with some showers developing. Low 35-42.

Saturday: Cloudy and windy with rain, heavy at times, changing to snow from central Massachusetts into southern New Hampshire late in the day. High 39-46 early (47-54 across Cape Cod and the Islands), then temperatures drop during the afternoon.

Saturday night: Cloudy and windy with rain changing to snow from northwest to southeast before tapering off and ending toward daybreak. Low 25-32, a little milder across Cape Cod and the Islands.

Sunday: A few lingering rain or snow showers early, then clearing in the afternoon, breezy. High 33-40.

Sunday night: Clear to partly cloudy. Low 19-26.

Monday: A mix of sun and clouds, slight chance for a rain or snow shower. High 32-39.

Thanksgiving Weekend Outlook: November 26-30, 2020

A wet Thanksgiving day appears likely, but much of the rest of the weekend looks dry at this point.

We’ve got plenty of clouds around today, well ahead of a low pressure system moving towards the Great Lakes. As that system continues eastward, we’ll see showers moving in tonight. While temperatures will be fairly mild for most of us, some chilly air is hanging around this afternoon from Southern New Hampshire into north-central Massachusetts and the Merrimack valley. While temperatures are mainly above freezing, a few spots could drop back close to freezing this evening, which may result in a few slippery spots as the rain moves in tonight. Temperatures should gradually rise towards morning even in these areas.

The milder air may never actually make it into Southern New Hampshire on Thanksgiving Day. Loop provided by WeatherBell.

Thanksgiving starts out with some rain, but there may be a bit of a lull around early afternoon as the initial batch of rain moves out. A cold front will be approaching from the west, and a secondary area of low pressure will ride up along it, bringing more rain in by late afternoon and evening. There may even be a rumble of thunder with the rain, mainly across southeastern Massachusetts. Temperatures may remain on the cool side from southern New Hampshire into parts of interior Massachusetts, but across eastern Massachusetts, much milder air is expected, with some places, especially near the South Coast, possibly getting close to 60. Everything finally moves offshore during the evening, but skies remain cloudy overnight, with some patchy fog possible as there will be plenty of low-level moisture in place across the area.

Friday likely features plenty of clouds but only a slight chance for a shower or two as an upper-level disturbance moves through, but temperatures should be mild in most places, with highs generally reaching the 50s. We finally start to clear out Friday night, with high pressure building in for the weekend with sunshine and cooler temperatures.

Monday will feature more changes. Another storm system will head towards the Great Lakes, sending some more clouds into the region. Right now, it looks like this could be a significant rain-maker for Monday night into Tuesday (and possibly Wednesday). This will help put a big dent into our long term rainfall deficit. This may also turn out to be a significant storm system for portions of the Midwest and East Coast. If this is still looking that way by Friday or Saturday, we’ll likely write up a special blog post about it.

Between Thursday’s storm and the one early next week, much of the region could receive some significant rainfall. Image provided by Weathermodels.com

Wednesday night: Cloudy with showers developing after midnight. Low 33-40 in southern New Hampshire and north-central Massachusetts, 41-48 elsewhere.

Thanksgiving Day: Periods of rain and showers, maybe even a rumble of thunder. High 45-52 in southern New Hampshire and north-central Massachusetts, 53-60 elsewhere.

Thursday night: Showers end in the evening, otherwise partly to mostly cloudy with some patchy fog likely. Low 36-43 in southern New Hampshire and the Merrimack Valley, 44-51 elsewhere.

Friday: Intervals of clouds and sun, just a slight chance for a late-day shower. High 52-59.

Friday night: Becoming partly cloudy to clear. Low 36-43.

Saturday: Partly to mostly sunny. High 46-53.

Saturday night: Clear skies. Low 28-35.

Sunday: Sunshine. Lots of sunshine. High 44-51.

Sunday night: Clear during the evening, clouds start to move in overnight. Low 29-36.

Monday: Becoming cloudy High 51-58.

Weekend Outlook: November 20-23, 2020

A warming trend is on the way for the weekend, but possibly some rain as well.

After a rather chilly start to the day, temperatures have moderated as high pressure moves offshore. Temperatures will continue to warm up into Friday and Saturday, though as the high moves off to our north and east, winds will shift into the northeast, allowing cooler air to slide back in later on Saturday and into Sunday.

Temperatures bottomed out in the middle teens to middlle 20s across most of the region this morning. Image provided by NOAA.

By later on Sunday, a warm front will move toward the region. Whether or not it makes it all the way through is still a question mark, but parts of the region, especially south of Boston, should see milder air move in for a while on Monday. The milder air will be preceded by some showers Sunday night and early Monday ahead of a cold front. While this won’t be drought-busting rainfall, every little bit helps at this point.

The models don’t agree on how far north the warm air will get on Monday. Images provided by Pivotal Weather.

Thursday night: Partly cloudy. Low 35-42.

Friday: A mix of sun and clouds, breezy. High 53-60.

Friday night: Clear to partly cloudy. Low 39-46.

Saturday: Partly sunny. High 52-59.

Saturday night: Clear to partly cloudy, some low clouds, fog, and drizzle are possible along the coast. Low 27-34.

Sunday: Becoming mostly cloudy. High 42-49.

Sunday night: Showers likely, maybe mixed with a little sleet or wet snow at the start up into central New Hampshire. Low 34-41.

Monday: Showers end early, skies may clear out in the afternoon, breezy. High 53-60, possibly a little cooler in southern New Hampshire.

Weekend Outlook: November 13-16, 2020

After several days of sunshine and record-breaking warmth, we’re going to be dealing with cooler conditions and some wet weather at times in the next few days. In other words, welcome to November.

November is off to a very warm start across the Northeast. Image provided by the Northeast Regional Climate Center.

Our record warmth is now a memory as a cold front has moved across the region. That front will stall out just to the south tonight, and a wave of low pressure will ride along it on Friday, bringing us some more showers as cooler air continues to settle into the area. Temperatures on Friday will be 25-30 degrees colder than they were on Wednesday.

Average high temperatures for mid-November are in the lower 50s across the area. Image provided by Weathermodels.com

High pressure builds in on Saturday with sunshine and temperatures that are more representative of mid-November. Sunday will start off dry, but another cold front will be approaching the region. We should turn milder again ahead of that front, but not nearly to the extent of what we’ve had for the past week. Showers are likely Sunday night into Monday morning as the front moves through. We’ll dry out and turn breezy and cooler again Monday afternoon as that front pushes offshore.

Thursday night: Cloudy with some patchy drizzle and a few showers. Low 37-44.

Friday: Scattered showers. High 46-53, possibly a little cooler north and west of 495.

Friday night: Clearing. Low 32-39.

Saturday: Mostly sunny. High 44-51.

Saturday night: Clear to partly cloudy. Low 26-33.

Sunday: Some morning sun, then clouds move in during the afternoon with showers possible toward evening. High 52-59, possibly cooler in southern New Hampshire.

Sunday night: Cloudy and breezy with showers likely, ending before daybreak. Low 37-44.

Monday: Partly to mostly sunny and breezy. High 47-54.
