NH1 First Alert Weather: Tuesday transition to summer warmth
The nor'easter that brought 1 to 3 inches of rain and even a brief period of snow to part of New Hampshire starting to pull away. We'll find a clearing sky Monday night with temperatures dropping to between 45 and 50 degrees for lows.
Plenty of sunshine is expected on Tuesday. A northwesterly breeze will be gusty at times, but it will act as a warming landbreeze. Highs will range from around 70 degrees up north into the middle 70s in southern New Hampshire.
A few extra clouds and even a spotty shower or two move through Tuesday night and early Wednesday.
Then we begin to crank the heat. A southwest wind between 5 and 10 mph will heat us into the mid and potentially upper 80s on Wednesday. However, a lighter wind will allow a seabreeze to develop. Coastal highs will mainly be in the 70s, coolest at the water's edge.
Hot weather arrives for everyone on Thursday. Highs likely reach the 90 degree mark in much of central and southern New Hampshire; 80s farther north. The seacoast will be included in the heat on Thursday, with a strong enough southwesterly wind fighting off the seabreeze.
The next cold front moves through Thursday night or early Friday with a shower or thunderstorm.
Behind the front, Friday and this weekend it will start to turn cooler. The coast may be much cooler at times this weekend.
The next major rain chance comes late Sunday or Monday.
