Mount Washington Valley Forecast

Thursday, October 23, 2014
4:39 AM
Flood Watch in effect through this evening...

A coastal low will continue to slowly make its way north along the eastern seaboard today into Friday. Several bands of precipitation will rotate in, with the heaviest bands moving in today. Steady rain will eventually give way to more showery type precipitation overnight into Friday. A band of thunderstorms is rotating northwest this morning. Southern areas will see some activity this morning with the chances of thunderstorms decreasing as you travel north. The heavy rain expected may also bring a risk of flash flooding today and some localized flooding will be possible, especially in areas w/ storm drains clogged with fallen fall foliage. Winds will also continue to be high with gusts up to 30 mph inland and 50 mph along the coast. This might cause power outages over the course of today and into the overnight hours.

Things start winding down over the course of the day Friday as the low starts to depart towards the Canadian Maritimes. Showers will continue to taper overnight into Saturday as a weak ridge of high pressure builds in over the region. This will likely result in fair weather skies for the day on Saturday. However, the fair conditions will be short lived as a cold front approaches the region Saturday night into Sunday. An upper level trough will trail the front on Sunday night into early Monday. This will allow for continued clouds and showers in the north. The south will see a clearing pattern set up, early next week as a ridge of high pressure starts building northeast over the region. This clearing pattern will then spread northward late in the day Monday.
