Sunday was NH's warmest Easter in three decades
As expected, Easter Sunday was a warm one in the Granite State.
High temperatures reached the 80s in most of the state. The only exception was Coos county, where highs were in the 70s; still well above the average for this time of year.
Concord's high temperature of 86 degrees did not break the April 16 record of 90 degrees, set in 2012.
However, since Easter Sunday falls on a different date each year, we can say this was the warmest Easter in three decades. NH1 Meteorologist Ryan Breton went through the record books and found the last time temperatures were in the 80s on Easter Sunday was in 1986, when the holiday fell on March 30.
The warmest Easter Sunday on record in Concord was in 1976, when the high temperature reached 92 degrees on April 18.
