DAYS 1-5 (OCTOBER 31-NOVEMBER 4)
High pressure sinks south of the region today, a very nice day for both the Red Sox World Series victory parade in the late morning to early afternoon as well as trick-or-treat activities in the evening. A cold front will get closer to the region from the north tonight into Thursday and may get across southern NH into parts of northern MA and hang around through Friday as another front approaches from the west. A couple waves of low pressure will pass by between Friday and early Saturday, which will be the wettest period of weather here. High pressure will push it all away later Saturday and this high will build over the region for tranquil weather by Sunday. Forecast details…

Sunday Forecast

8:10AM

DAYS 1-5 (OCTOBER 28-NOVEMBER 1)
As the days of October dwindle we have entered a transitional pattern, marked by a larger storm system which arrived yesterday and departs today. The storm brought wind and rain, with most of its snow confined to the mountains of northern New England. There were scattered power outages mainly due to fallen aged tree limbs, weighted by saturation and lingering foliage and pushed by some moderate wind gusts. We’re now in-between 2 storm systems, the larger one yesterday and a smaller follow-up that will bring additional wet weather to the region Monday. Today starts damp but not with falling rain, just lingering low level moisture with a low overcast, some fog, and patchy drizzle. It may dry out enough for a few breaks of sun this afternoon but clouds will dominate, although it will turn milder than yesterday was. Beyond Monday’s wet weather, drier conditions return for the final 2 days of October, along with milder air as the large scale pattern places a trough of low pressure in the middle of the US and a ridge of high pressure along the East Coast, reminiscent of the pattern we saw so often during the weeks leading up to the recent chilly spell. In fact, by the time we flip the calendar to November on Thursday, it will be quite mild. Forecast details…
TODAY: This morning overcast with areas of fog and drizzle. This afternoon mostly cloudy with possible breaks of sun. Highs 53-60. Wind light variable this morning, SW 5-15 MPH with a few higher gusts this afternoon.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Areas of rain arrive overnight. Lows 40-47. Wind SW to S up to 10 MPH.
MONDAY: Cloudy with periods of rain through mid afternoon. Slight chance of a thunderstorm. Partial clearing west to east late in the day. Highs 48-55. Wind S to SE 5-15 MPH morning, SW to W 5-15 MPH with higher gusts afternoon.
MONDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 35-42. Wind W 10-20 MPH and gusty evening, diminishing overnight.
TUESDAY: Sun and passing clouds. Highs 48-55. Wind NW 5-15 MPH.
WEDNESDAY: Partly sunny. Lows in the 30s. Highs from the upper 50s to lower 60s.
THURSDAY: Partly cloudy. Lows in the 40s. Highs from the upper 60s to lower 70s.

DAYS 6-10 (NOVEMBER 2-6)
Pattern during this period as likely to be trough Midwest and ridge just off East Coast. This is a mild pattern for this area with above normal temperatures. Warmest days likely November 2 and 6. Cold front should bring rain showers by later November 2 to early November 3. Disturbance may bring rain early November 4. Mainly dry otherwise.

DAYS 11-15 (NOVEMBER 7-11)
Same general pattern but with less amplitude, allowing another front to bring wet weather early period, a dry and cooler mid period, and moderating temperatures late in the period with mainly dry weather.

Saturday Forecast

8:53AM

DAYS 1-5 (OCTOBER 27-31)
Many changes in the final 5 days of October, starting with an East Coast storm of wind and rain today, a milder break between systems Sunday, another wet weather system not nearly as strong on Monday, then drying out and turning milder as we go through the final 2 days of the month, although by Halloween itself an old frontal boundary in the area may bright the slightest threat of a rain shower. Forecast details…
TODAY: Overcast with rain, heavy at times through mid afternoon, diminishing to lighter rain/drizzle late day. Highs 41-48. Wind NE 15-25 MPH, higher gusts above 30 MPH interior and above 45 MPH coastal areas. Coastal flooding probable especially around early afternoon high tide.
TONIGHT: Cloudy with drizzle, areas of fog, and periods of rain. Temperatures steady in the 40s. Wind SE 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Mostly cloudy to partly sunny. Chance of drizzle and a slight chance of a rain shower early. Highs 56-63. Wind S to SW 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY: Cloudy. Periods of rain. Lows from the middle to upper 40s. Highs from the lower to middle 50s.
TUESDAY: Partly cloudy. Lows in the 30s. Highs from lower to middle 50s.
WEDNESDAY: Partly sunny. Slight risk of a rain shower. Lows in the 40s. Highs from the upper 50s to lower 60s.

DAYS 6-10 (NOVEMBER 1-5)
Mild November 1 with a rain shower risk late and some wet weather on November 2 leading to a cooler/dry November 3 as a bubble of high pressure moves in, but then another quick wet weather threat November 4 before dry air returns November 5.

DAYS 11-15 (NOVEMBER 6-10)
Fair, milder start to the period, briefly wet, then dry and cooler.

Friday Forecast

7:15AM

DAYS 1-5 (OCTOBER 26-30)
A tranquil, chilly day today as high pressure hangs on then gives way to a rapidly advancing low pressure system that will turn into a formidable storm system for the region Saturday along with wind, rain, and some coastal flooding. But this system moves right along and we get into a dry slot with a pretty decent Sunday before a follow-up, weaker system brings more wet weather to the region Monday. Drier air arrives from the west behind the second system on Tuesday. Forecast details…
TODAY: Brightest sun early then filtered sun with more high clouds balance of the day. Highs 44-50. Wind light NW to N.
TONIGHT: Clouding up. Rain arriving south to north by dawn which may start as brief snow/mix interior higher elevations with only minor accumulation possible in highest elevations of southwestern NH. Lows 31-38. Wind NE up to 10 MPH.
SATURDAY: Overcast with rain, heavy at times through midday, diminishing to lighter rain/drizzle during the afternoon. Highs 41-48. Wind NE 15-25 MPH, higher gusts above 30 MPH interior and above 45 MPH coastal areas. Coastal flooding probable especially around early afternoon high tide.
SATURDAY NIGHT: Cloudy with drizzle, areas of fog, and periods of rain. Temperatures steady in the 40s. Wind SE 5-15 MPH.
SUNDAY: Mostly cloudy to partly sunny. Chance of drizzle and a slight chance of a rain shower early. Highs 56-63. Wind S to SW 5-15 MPH.
MONDAY: Cloudy. Periods of rain. Lows in the 40s. Highs in the 50s.
TUESDAY: Partly cloudy. Lows in the 30s. Highs from the upper 40s to lower 50s.

DAYS 6-10 (OCTOBER 31-NOVEMBER 4)
Halloween looks dry and milder as high pressure dominates. November starts mild with a rain shower risk late November 1 into November 2 before it cools down. Dry, cool November 3. Disturbance brings a rain risk November 4 based on current timing and rather swift movement of systems.

DAYS 11-15 (NOVEMBER 5-9)
Next rain risk mid period will split an early period chill and quick warm up from a late period cool down once again.

Thursday Forecast

7:20AM

DAYS 1-5 (OCTOBER 25-29)
A chilly northwesterly flow will dominate the weather across southern New England today and then high pressure builds in for a very chilly night and cool but more tranquil Friday. The “calm before the storm” phrase will live up to its name as we have a coastal low to contend with Saturday that will come up the East Coast and bring a bout of wind and rain. Although this system may start as a mix or snow briefly inland, that will cause no significant issues. What will is the coastal flooding near and during high tide times, especially the Saturday afternoon one, which will likely have moderate impact in vulnerable areas. We enter a zone between 2 systems Sunday, which will likely be rain-free other than some early drizzle. A second low will make a run at the region Monday. I’d been concerned about this one having more cold air to work with and perhaps having a rain/snow line but at this time it looks like that will not be the case, and the system will be the weaker of the two, bringing just some periods of rainfall to start the new week. Forecast details…
TODAY: Filtered sun through mid morning with lots of high clouds, then brighter sun and a few passing clouds late morning through afternoon. Highs 44-50. Wind NW increasing to 10-15 MPH with higher gusts.
TONIGHT: Clear. Lows 22-28 interior low spots, 29-35 elsewhere. Wind light variable.
FRIDAY: Bright sun through early afternoon then filtered sun with more high clouds remainder of day. Highs 44-50. Wind light variable.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Clouding up. Rain arriving south to north by dawn which may start as brief snow/mix interior higher elevations with only minor accumulation possible in highest elevations of southwestern NH. Lows 31-38. Wind NE up to 10 MPH.
SATURDAY: Overcast with rain, heavy at times through midday, diminishing to lighter rain/drizzle during the afternoon. Highs 41-48. Wind NE 15-25 MPH, higher gusts. Coastal flooding probable especially around early afternoon high tide.
SUNDAY: Mostly cloudy to partly sunny. Chance of drizzle and a slight chance of a rain shower early. Lows in the 40s. Highs from the middle to upper 50s.
MONDAY: Cloudy. Periods of rain. Lows in the 40s. Highs in the 50s.

DAYS 6-10 (OCTOBER 30-NOVEMBER 3)
A shift to a more progressive west to east flow takes place. Improving but cool weather October 30-31. Dry, milder November 1. Rain shower threat November 2 with a front from the west. Dry, cooling November 3.

DAYS 11-15 (NOVEMBER 4-8)
A rain risk leads milder air into the region early in the period which hangs on until mid period before a rain shower threat leads a chill back by the end of the period.

QUICK COMMENTARY
I’d love to do a review of yesterday’s weather right here but am pressed for time before I have to send this and be out of the house, so that will appear in segments in the comments by myself (and others I am sure) during the day. In the mean time, onto an abbreviated version of the usual.

DAYS 1-5 (OCTOBER 24-28)
Low pressure moving away today is still close enough for lots of cloudiness and perhaps a few rain showers for a while today before dry air takes over and it’s quite breezy and chilly through Thursday. High pressure builds in later Thursday through Friday with continued dry but chilly weather. And then the long-talked-about storm threat arrives as an actual weather event on Saturday as a wind and mostly rain maker, that may start as snow in some interior locations due to lingering cold air (no significant accumulation expected). We get into a break between 2 storm systems by Sunday with less rain and wind by then. Forecast details…
TODAY: Mostly cloudy to partly sunny. Risk of a few rain showers. Highs 45-52. Wind NW 10-20 MPH and gusty.
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 33-39. Wind NW 10-20 MPH and gusty.
THURSDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 43-49. Wind NW 10-20 MPH and gusty, diminishing late.
FRIDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 20s. Highs in the 40s.
SATURDAY: Cloudy. Rain arriving, may start as sleet/snow interior briefly. Lows from the lower to middle 30s. Highs from the upper 40s to lower 50s.
SUNDAY: Mostly cloudy. Chance of rain showers and drizzle. Lows in the 40s. Highs from the lower to middle 50s.

DAYS 6-10 (OCTOBER 29-NOVEMBER 2)
A second storm system will pass through the region October 29 with a rain risk that may end as mix/snow in some areas if it lingers into night. Improving weather October 30-31 but windy and chilly a first before moderating slightly. A bit milder to start November but another system brings a rain shower risk by the end of the period.

DAYS 11-15 (NOVEMBER 3-7)
A trend to dry and somewhat milder weather for a good portion of this period but may turn unsettled and colder by the end of the period.

Tuesday Forecast

7:27AM

DAYS 1-5 (OCTOBER 23-27)
Low pressure will cross the region today with unsettled weather, and behind it another batch of autumn chill will arrive for midweek. High pressure maintains control Friday which will be cool but tranquil. Then things change as the first in what appears will be two storm systems moves into the region Saturday. There are still a lot of details to work out with this system, but the earlier idea of it passing largely offshore is abandoned. I think it will arrive, and perhaps fast enough with enough cold air in place to even start as frozen precipitation in some interior locations, but odds very much favor the vast majority of this system being a rain and wind maker. Forecast details…
TODAY: Mainly cloudy. Episodes of rain showers midday and afternoon. Slight chance of thunder in a few heavier showers. Highs 45-53. Wind light SE increasing to 5-15 MPH with higher gusts late day.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy. Early rain showers ending. Lows 35-42. Wind variable becoming NW increasing to 10-20 MPH with higher gusts.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy. Highs 45-52. Wind NW 10-20 MPH and gusty.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy. Lows 33-39. Wind NW 10-20 MPH and gusty.
THURSDAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 43-49. Wind NW 10-20 MPH and gusty, diminishing late.
FRIDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 20s. Highs in the 40s.
SATURDAY: Cloudy. Rain arriving, may start as sleet/snow interior briefly. Lows from the lower to middle 30s. Highs from the upper 40s to lower 50s.

DAYS 6-10 (OCTOBER 28-NOVEMBER 1)
We’ll be in the middle of a stormy period October 28 probably between the first system and a second system with some rain showers and breezy conditions, then the second of the expected two systems comes through on October 29 with rain, but rain or snow possible over the interior if precipitation is heavy enough with just enough cold air around – something to watch. Improving weather for the remainder of the period. Temperatures start below normal then recover toward normal.

DAYS 11-15 (NOVEMBER 2-6)
A weaker disturbance may come through to start the period then it looks like a trend to mainly dry and milder weather as high pressure takes over.

Monday Forecast

7:01AM

DAYS 1-5 (OCTOBER 22-26)
High pressure brings fair weather today, low pressure diving across the Great Lakes and crossing the Northeast brings unsettled weather Tuesday, then a shot of chilly air arrives behind this for midweek with high pressure building in with fair weather into late this week.
Forecast details…
TODAY: Mostly sunny. Highs 47-54. Wind W up to 10 MPH.
TONIGHT: Increasing clouds. Lows 35-42. Wind light SW.
TUESDAY: Cloudy. Episodes of rain midday and afternoon which may begin as some sleet interior MA and southern NH. Highs 45-53. Wind light SE.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy with a risk of rain showers early, then clearing. Lows 35-42. Wind variable becoming NW increasing to 10-20 MPH.
WEDNESDAY: Partly cloudy. Highs 46-53. Wind NW 10-20 MPH and gusty.
THURSDAY: Mostly sunny. Diminishing breeze. Lows from the middle 20s to lower 30s. Highs in the 40s.
FRIDAY: Mostly sunny. Lows in the 20s. Highs in the 40s.

DAYS 6-10 (OCTOBER 27-31)
The period of October 27-29 is highly uncertain, detail-wise, but is likely to be unsettled and possibly quite stormy for a portion of it. Timing and specifics are still unknown. There could still be a scenario which brings 2 separate systems nearby or over the region (October 27 and 29) and a scenario where it is one main system (October 28). These scenarios also leave open the possibility for frozen precipitation to be included especially for interior higher elevations. The weather should turn more tranquil toward the end of the period.

DAYS 11-15 (NOVEMBER 1-5)
Watch for another possible storm system in the first days of November as the temporarily stormy pattern continues. Temperatures near to below normal.
