NH1 First Alert Weather: Even warmer Wednesday
A warm front will cross through the region early Wednesday with more clouds and even a spot shower. The daytime hours will be sunny and warm. Highs will reach the middle to upper 80s in most of central and southern New Hampshire, lower 80s farther north. A light seabreeze is possible at the beaches during the afternoon.
Wednesday night will be mostly clear and muggy. Lows will be in the low to mid 60s for most - a much warmer night than we're used to.
Thursday will be the warmest day. Our air will come directly from the southeastern United States, meaning it will be both hot and humid. This will be the first truly 'humid' day of the year for many.
Afternoon highs on Thursday will be between 90 and 95 degrees for much of central and southern New Hampshire.
Concord's long-standing record high temperature for the date, 90 set in 1906, is in serious jeopardy.
A cold front will hold off until Friday. This means we will sneak in another warm and humid day on Friday. The front will pass through the state from north to south during the midday and first half of the afternoon Friday. There can be a pop-up shower or thunderstorm ahead of the front. Highs on Friday will reach the 80s, especially in southern New Hampshire.
Right now, the weekend looks pleasant and more typical for this time of year. The seacoast may be cooler (60s) both days with seabreezes. Inland towns should top 70 degrees both days with plenty of sun Saturday and a few extra clouds Sunday.
The next system is timed for Monday with showers and potentially a thunderstorm.
