NH1 First Alert Weather: Sunny, hot Saturday
After a scorching Friday, some towns in southern New Hampshire will once again come close to an official heat wave, which is defined as at least three consecutive days with temperatures above 90.
Saturday will be hot again with high temperatures in the 80s to low 90s in most places. Expect lots of sunshine with just a slight chance of a pop-up shower or thunderstorm during the afternoon or evening. Much like the activity on Friday, any storms that develop would be isolated and of the "hit or miss" variety. Most areas will stay dry.
A disturbance will move into the area Saturday night. This will spread more clouds into the state, and a few scattered showers cannot be ruled out Saturday night into early Sunday. As a result, it's possible Sunday begins rather cloudy and dull in a few places before the sunshine increases for the afternoon.
Lighter winds on Sunday will allow a seabreeze to develop, cooling the seacoast during the afternoon. Highs inland will be in the 80s to around 90, while the beaches will have highs near 80. Temperatures at NHMS in Loudon will be in the mid to upper 80s for the NH 301 on Sunday.
The hazy, hot and humid weather will return in full force by Monday, with highs in between 90 and 95 degrees.
An approaching cold front will spark showers and thunderstorms later Monday into Monday night, especially in western and northern New Hampshire.
Depending on the timing of the front, Tuesday may begin cloudy with a scattered shower or thunderstorm, but clearing should follow for the afternoon. Temperatures on Tuesday will be in the 80s, with lowering humidity.
A gorgeous stretch of weather with sunshine and temperatures in the 80s both Wednesday and Thursday, before the humidity rises and temperatures hit the 90s again by next Friday.
Have a great weekend, and join us tonight on NH1 News at 10 for the full forecast.
