NH1 First Alert Weather: Chilly for Trick-or-Treaters in NH
Monday will be a mostly sunny day across New Hampshire as high pressure builds into the region. There will be a cool northwesterly breeze between 5 and 15 mph, with occasionally higher gusts. High temperatures will range from the 40s north to around 50 in southern New Hampshire.
The center of high pressure will settle overhead Monday night into early Tuesday, a perfect set-up for a cold night.
It'll be chilly for Trick-or-Treaters in the Granite State Monday night, as temperatures quickly fall through the 40s and into the 30s during the course of the evening. By Tuesday morning, many areas will be in the 20s! The "mildest" areas of southeast New Hampshire will start Tuesday morning with temperatures near freezing.
Now that we are into the middle of fall, it can be more of a challenge to transport warmer air into the region. This process often comes with more clouds - and we'll start to see increasing clouds during the day on Tuesday. It'll likely become partly to mostly cloudy, with afternoon highs in the low to mid 50s.
Wednesday will be much milder, with high temperatures getting well into the 60s. However, the day will feature more clouds than sun, with even the slightest chance of a shower.
The next notable cold front moves into New England on Thursday. If this front is slow to arrive, we'll see some partial sun with highs once again reaching the 60s. Right now, this front looks like it will push into the state during the day with lots of clouds and afternoon showers. If this is the case, high temperatures would range from the 50s north to low 60s in southeast New Hampshire, but the timing could change a bit between now and then.
Colder air arrives to end the week, with a gusty wind on Friday. Next weekend will turn unsettled, and there is even less certainty in the forecast by then. For now, expect more clouds than sun, temperatures in the 40s and perhaps a few showers, but neither day look like a washout.
