NH1 Weather Insider For Monday August 10, 2015
Monday will bring a good deal of sunshine our way as a weak area of High Pressure moves across New England. Highs will be returning to low 80s. Meanwhile, if you're heading to the coastal beaches there will be an offshore storm center that will be kicking up the surf a bit so you'll need to beware of a greater risk for rip currents!
A bit of the muggies return for Tuesday and Wednesday as a weather system will be moving in with some much needed rainfall in the showers for early Tuesday and then perhaps some heavier downpours in the afternoon and evening as thunderstorms tend to develop. Most of the showers will be winding down Wednesday morning with slow clearing during the midday and afternoon. Highs Tuesday will only range 68-75 and the recover to near 80 Wednesday. Thursday and Friday look to be a couple of pleasant summer days with a slight warming trend, but there may be a thunderstorm threat Friday late afternoon with highs in the low to mid 80s.
If all goes as expected weather-wise, skies clear out Wednesday night and you will get a chance to view the annual Perseid meteor shower that will reach its peak at 4am Thursday morning. However, there will be opportunities to view some shooting stars both on the nights before and after that date. In fact, some stray ones have already begun to be spotted. The best viewing times are after 11pm in the evening and you want to be looking toward the northeastern sky and just slightly below the constellation Cassiopeia (it looks like a "W" on it's side pointing toward the upper left). Also, you'll want to be away from city lights. Good luck!
Have a great week!
