A high pressure system has controlled much of the weather Wednesday, but as a trough enters Vermont and New Hampshire, showers have now started to roll into the north, producing light to moderate activity, short in duration.
While cloud coverage will continue overnight, it prevents a more efficient way of cooling off the ground due to long-wave radiation, so our lows won’t be dropping too much -- they’ll stay in the 50s.
Some fog may develop Thursday morning and allow for visibilities to reduce again into less than a mile for some.
But as this high pressure system remains, we’ll continue to track above-average temperatures tomorrow.
