Today will feature the potential for a few scattered showers as a cold front slides into the region from the northwest. Radar imagery this morning shows some shower activity over the mountains and foothills of NH ahead of the front. These showers are moving east-northeast and are most likely to reach the ground in the mountains and foothills of Maine. As you move closer to the coastline, rain chances don’t go to zero but they will drop off a bit and any rain that does fall will tend to be lighter. Showers will continue through the afternoon especially in the foothills.
Cloud cover will follow a similar pattern to the rain which is to say that the mountains will be most likely to retain overcast conditions for the rest of the day while breaks of sun become more likely as you approach the coastline and southern parts of NH.
Southerly/southwesterly flow ahead of the frontal boundary will help boost temps into the low-mid 60s across southern NH and SW Maine. Cooler temps (mid-upper 50s) will be found along the midcoast and up in the mountains (low-mid 50s).
