A lot more sun will be around to finish off this holiday weekend as an area of High pressure builds in from the west. Before that High gets here, though, a very weak disturbance will pass across NH this afternoon and will induce a fractured line of brief showers/sprinkles. So, certainly not everyone will see it and those that do may only see it last for about 15-20 minutes. Basically don’t worry about having to change any outdoor plans. Temperatures will rise into the upper 70s from the mountain range northward and lower 80s from the Lakes region southward.
High pressure then moves to our east Monday which will create a rather hot sunny day around the granite state as readings climb well into the 80s and low 90s for several spots in southern areas. Humidity levels will begin to climb as well. Tuesday and Wednesday will be a pair of very muggy days that will feature at least partial sunshine with highs in the mid 80s. A cold front will enter New England late Wednesday bringing an increased threat of developing scattered afternoon showers or thunderstorms. The coastal beaches through this stretch look to cool a bit in the afternoons with very light sea breezes forming and that will knock temperatures back to the upper 70s as they develop.
A cold front crosses the area Wednesday night which will help break some, but not all of the mugginess. This front will slow down or stall once it slips off the coast and that looks to lead to lingering clouds Thursday, but it stays warm with temperatures in the upper 70s and low 80s which is right where we should be.
Have a great weekend!
