NH1 First Alert Weather: Hot NH summer continues; Concord hits 90 for 18th time this year
It's been a sizzling summer across the Granite State, and the numbers prove it.
Concord hit the 90-degree mark for the 18th time in 2016 on Tuesday afternoon.
On average, the state capital sees temperatures in the 90s 12 times in an entire calendar year. Last year, Concord hit the mark 17 times.
The lack of rain and a dry ground have certainly contributed to the warmth.
To date, Nashua has had 16 days in the 90s, while Manchester and Durham have both reported 17.
The last time we had a year with this many 90-degree days was 2010, when we experienced a sweltering 26 days with temperatures in the 90s in Concord.
