The Week Ahead: Cool and unsettled, watching late-week storm

After a 50-50 weekend, cool air has arrived and it’s here to stay. Here’s what to expect in this week’s Total Outlook.MONDAYClouds return for Monday and it will be a damp day as showers move across the area. Precipitation will arrive in the morning back through New Hampshire then spread eastward. In northern NH and the western Maine mountains or higher elevations, this may initially start as a wintry mix with some minimal accumulation possible before turning to rain. Otherwise, this will be a rain event with scattered showers through the afternoon and evening before tapering off to patchy drizzle in spots. It will be a cool day with highs in the 40’s to near 50 degrees. Monday night will be mainly cloudy with lows in the low 40’s. TUESDAYTuesday looks drier but there could still be an isolated shower with highs in the upper 40’s near 50 degrees. Lows Tuesday night will be cool again back in the 30’s.WEDNESDAYIt should be dry in the middle of the week with some sun returning Wednesday. Highs will still be cool in the upper 40’s near 50 degrees. Lows Wednesday night will drop back into the 30’s again.THURSDAY & FRIDAYThis time period gets interesting. Latest model trends have suggested a storm system that could impact us Thursday into Friday. Depending on the track and timing, it looks like we could see some rain late Thursday with a wintry mix or snow possible into Friday. This will be something we watch closely this week, so stay tuned for those updates. It does look like Thursday will feature highs in the 50’s before much colder air on Friday, when highs may struggle to get above the low 40’s.THE WEEKENDAt this point, the upcoming weekend looks dry but cool with highs in the 40’s. For Halloween on Saturday, leave the raincoats behind but add a layer or two under the costume. Don’t forget- we “fall back” this weekend as Daylight Saving Time ends!
