NH1 First Alert Weather: Sunny across NH, but on the cooler side Sunday
A couple of gorgeous days of weather are ahead for the Granite State.
Cool, Canadian high pressure will anchor overhead this afternoon into tonight. That will ensure lots of sunshine today, but cooler air. The northwesterly breeze will be gusty at times this afternoon, up to 25 mph in places. High temperatures will struggle to reach 60 degrees in central and northern New Hampshire. Southern areas should have highs in the lower half of the 60s this afternoon.
Tonight will be an even chillier night. Low temperatures statewide should be in the 30s, with the "mildest" spots of southern New Hampshire near 40 by Monday morning. A more widespread frost is likely in central and southern New Hampshire. A hard freeze is possible in portions of northern New Hampshire.
After a chilly start, Monday will be a gorgeous day. Sunshine will be most prevalent during the first half of the day, with some clouds filtering the sky later in the day. Highs will be in the low to mid 60s.
Clouds will thicken Monday night ahead of the next front, which will produce a widespread rain on Tuesday.
The exact timing of the rain can still change by a few hours, but right now it appears from Tuesday morning through early afternoon, showers and downpours will cross through the state. In total, a quarter to three-quarters of an inch of rain may fall across the region.
The forecast from Wednesday through next weekend is less certain than usual. At the moment, it appears Wednesday and Thursday should be dry days, with varying amounts of clouds and sunshine. High temperatures will generally be on either side of 70 degrees.
A slow moving upper-level disturbance may bring unsettled weather with more clouds and showers Friday or Saturday.
