MIKE HADDAD: Hello, everyone. Meteorologist Mike Haddad here in the Stormwatch 9 Weather Center. Some rain opportunities that are passing off to the east, at least for the next several hours. Give way to more chances between now and the end of the week. So this is all good news to put another little dent in our drought, dampen the brushfire concern, knock down the pollen count. But there will be many dry hours squeezed in between those chances of rain. So as one system departs, a lot of clouds will tend to linger overnight with patchy fog, could be a little bit of drizzle or a few sprinkles.

And then this system begins to approach later tomorrow and especially tomorrow night and early on Friday. So here's a breakdown of the timeline over the next 48 hours. Notice the steadiest of the rain pulling out of southern New Hampshire this evening and extending to the north, at least through midnight, 1:00 AM, maybe 2:00 AM. Then those showers begin to break apart by early tomorrow morning. Elsewhere, a lot of clouds, temperatures in the 40s to around 50, with a few sprinkles or a little bit of drizzle. During the day tomorrow, clouds win the battle over any partial sunshine.

Showers begin to develop, especially late day, and mostly over southern in southwestern parts of the state. Then that rain fills in statewide later tomorrow night to early, early on Friday morning. Could see over a half inch of rain out of this in some spots before it tends to taper off during early on Friday morning. Over southern New Hampshire, a couple of passing showers for the rest of your Friday. Farther to the north, steadier rain through midday-early afternoon. And then by Saturday, partly sunny. It will be windy and seasonable. Low 50s north, around 60 far south.
