- Hello, everyone, meteorologist Mike Haddad here in the stormwatch 9 Weather Center. All of this green you see on the map, dotted with a few yellows here or there? All good news for the Granite State. This rain beneficial in so many ways, knocking down the pollen count, keeping the brush fire danger at bay, at least for now, and putting just a little dent in our drought. We need several systems like this over the next several weeks to get out of the drought, but we'll take what we can get. And this looks to be running in terms of amounts of rain anywhere from 1/2 inch to 1 and 1/4 just tonight into early tomorrow morning.

Speaking of tomorrow morning, back edge of the steady rain lifts on through, and mainly affects northern and central New Hampshire for the morning commute, as a steady rain tapers off in southern zones. Heaviest of the rain during the evening. During the overnight stretch it may let up for a time, fill back in, and then that's when the axis of the heavier rain lifts into northern parts of the state. So for the morning commute, steadiest rain north, better chance of just a passing shower and a mostly cloudy skies farther to the south. And temperatures not going too far, falling maybe two, three, four degrees overnight tonight.

During the day tomorrow, winds begin to freshen out of the west northwest during the afternoon, partial sun, a passing shower in the afternoon, near 60 plus, conquered points south, low 50s with steady rain to the north. Then tomorrow night it actually turns just cold enough where the rain could mix in with a few wet snow flakes, northern and western New Hampshire. Start of the weekend, looking good, but it will be windy. Temperatures upper 40s near 50 north to the upper 50s [INAUDIBLE] 60 on south with lots of sun, and again those gusty winds.
