A weak area of low pressure will move towards the Gulf of Maine today before sliding east overnight into Thursday. This incoming low will rotate ample amounts of moisture in from the coast, which will keep summits generally in the clouds w/ drizzle today into the evening. Similar to yesterday though, the summits above 5000 feet will likely be above an undercast layer for most of the day as a dry layer aloft is being separated by a weak inversion. However, as things mix during the day, intermittent fog will roll over these higher peaks too. A few bands of rain showers associated with the low may rotate far enough inland to bring a few light rain showers to the summits over the course of the day today before tapering overnight. As the low exits, a ridge of high pressure will rebuild over the region from the north allowing for a drying pattern to set up for Thursday. The generally easterly flow over the forecast period will keep temperatures fairly uniform however, a bit of sunshine on Thursday may bump temperatures a bit over todays readings.
