NH1 First Alert Weather: Warming trend for NH the next few days
Wednesday morning may be on the cool side for some, but warmer and more humid weather will be returning to the Granite State over the next few days.
High pressure will build into New England during the day on Wednesday. As a result, expect mostly sunny skies, with just a few building clouds during the afternoon. Lighter winds will allow a seabreeze to develop, cooling the coast. High temperatures at the beaches will generally be in the 70s, while inland areas on Wednesday will have highs between 80 and 85 degrees.
Humidity will be relatively low on Wednesday, and the comfortable weather will continue through Wednesday night, with temperatures falling into the 50s in most places.
Southerly winds begin to develop on Thursday, transporting warmth and humidity back into the area. Expect sunshine with just a few clouds at times. A spot thunderstorm can't be ruled out in northern New Hampshire on Thursday, but most of us will stay dry. High temperatures will be in the mid to upper 80s inland, but a seabreeze will keep coastal areas closer to 80.
Friday will feature hazy sunshine, and it will turn more humid as well. It will be the warmest day of the week with highs near 90 in most areas, though a light seabreeze could once again provide a bit of relief at the beaches during the afternoon.
The next shower or thunderstorm threat is Friday night into Saturday. The exact timing is still a bit uncertain at this time. However, it appears scattered showers and thunderstorms are most likely Saturday morning. As long as a cold front remains progressive, clearing skies should follow for the afternoon, with temperatures in the 80s. Be sure to follow our forecast updates over the next few days.
Sunday will bring drier air, a mix of sunshine and afternoon clouds. Highs will be in the lower half of the 80s.
Pleasant conditions continue into the beginning of next week with no drought-busting rains in sight.
