Forecast Discussion

A weak disturbance approaching from the Great Lakes this morning will stall out just to our west today, with high pressure over Maine slowly building back across the area into the weekend. Skies will remain mostly cloudy today due to the weak disturbance stalling over parts of Vermont, with a few showers possible this afternoon with the aid of daytime heating. Overnight the higher summits will periodically go into the clouds, with a few light rain showers lingering through the night. Scattered showers will continue Friday as the weak low pressure dissipates over the region, with a few isolated thunderstorms possible during the afternoon. High pressure and fair weather will build back across New Hampshire for the weekend.
