SYNOPSIS
Showers move back into the picture this afternoon and night after a fair morning. High pressure gradually builds in early next week with partly to mostly sunny skies outside of the mountains along with a warming trend. Cooler conditions with mainly rain expected late next week as low pressure develops to our south.

NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/
After a mix of sun and clouds through the first half of today, a quick moving area of low pressure approaches and brings another round of showers late this afternoon and into this evening. Temps warm into the 50s to near 60 ahead of this system through the early afternoon. Then clouds quickly spread in during the afternoon, with the showers starting within a couple hours after the clouds arrival. This drops temps back into the 40s as temps wet bulb in the rain, making for a raw late afternoon and evening.

The most widespread coverage of these showers will be across western New Hampshire, with a gradual lessening of intensity, but not only a minimal decrease in coverage eastward toward the coast.

SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH MONDAY/
Showers continue through the evening, and gradually end from west to east within a couple hours of midnight. Rainfall amounts look to remain light, but some spots across western New Hampshire and the higher terrain are likely to pick up to half an inch of rain, with amounts dropping off to near a tenth of an inch or less near the coast.

Skies clear out through the overnight hours outside of the mountains, with some patchy valley fog likely to develop overnight following the rain. Clouds linger through the mountains, with a few showers again in the mountains by tomorrow morning as a weak trough swings through. By the afternoon hours, pop up showers are likely to reach outside of the mountains, but gradually decrease in coverage toward the coastline.

Temperatures warm into the 50s to low 60s tomorrow downwind of the mountains, but likely then level off or begin to fall by early to mid afternoon as the cloud cover and showers increase.

LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/
Very little change to the going forecast for the Tue-Wed time frame where we expect it to be fair and mostly dry. Some mountain showers remain possible Monday night.

The next system for late in the week continues to be very complex in the mid and upper levels. The trend in the latest deterministic and ensemble guidance has been for slightly stronger ridging nearby which means a slower arrival of any steady rainfall and perhaps less rainfall overall through late in the week. Have slowed up PoP timing and Kept Wed night and most of Thursday dry. Higher PoPs remain Friday but uncertainty still exists. Overall, temperatures remain near to a bit above normal through the period.

AVIATION /06Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/
Short Term...MVFR to near MVFR ceilings linger at HIE through early tomorrow morning. Elsewhere, VFR ceilings lower to MVFR with showers late this afternoon and evening, and then return to VFR after midnight tonight. VFR prevail at most terminals tomorrow, but a few showers are possible at times. Periods of MVFR ceilings are likely at HIE tomorrow afternoon.

Long Term...Mainly VFR Tuesday through Thursday with relatively light winds expected.

MARINE
Short Term...SCA conditions continue across the outer waters into tomorrow afternoon, at which point seas likely fall to or just below 5ft. A weak area of low pressure crosses the waters late this afternoon and evening. A trough lingers across the Canadian Maritimes through tomorrow, bringing continued westerly flow across the waters.

Long Term...SCA conditions may linger Monday evening but then subside. SCA conditions are not expected Tue-Thu.

HYDROLOGY
Any light rainfall this afternoon and tonight should not have any sort of significant effect on river flows as they continue to recede.

GYX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES
ME...None.
NH...None.
MARINE...Small Craft Advisory until 2 PM EDT Monday for ANZ150-152-154.
