NH1 Weather Insider with Meteorologist Bill Gile for August 17, 2015
High pressure will continue to wrap in warmer and more humid air for Monday and Tuesday as highs climb between 90-95 degrees. We have entered a stretch of heat and humidity that will be the longest one of the summer. Even the beaches will be hot on Monday as readings climb to near 90 degrees. So, try to limit your outdoor exposure to the sun, if you have to work outside take plenty of breaks and don't over-exert yourself. Drink plenty of non-alcoholic fluids and check on the neighbors that don't air conditioning to make sure they are doing ok in the heat. Also, don't take your pets for a ride in the car and make sure you DO NOT leave your child in the car even you're just running into a store real quick. The interior of the car will heat up to 120 degrees in just 10-15 minutes even with the windows down a few inches. This can result in serious injury or even death!
There'll be a mix of sun and clouds Tuesday, but during the afternoon/evening there may be a pop-up shower or thundershower around as a weakening front stalls to the north of NH. Wednesday will still threaten with a spot shower, but otherwise it'll be another hot day with temperatures in the upper 80s under at least partly sunny skies.
The second half of the week will not be as hot as temperatures settle back into the low and mid 80s, but it will still be rather humid right into Friday when a cold front will slide across the area Friday during the morning with some thunderstorms. After that, it looks pretty nice heading into the weekend.
Have a great week!
