More hot and humid weather is in the forecast today as a cold front slowly approaches from the northwest. There’s a fair amount of cloud cover moving across the region this morning, with radar picking up on a few showers in the mountains. That should clear out by the early afternoon, with a trend towards sunnier skies and drier conditions. The heat and humidity may be enough to fuel a brief pop up shower or thunderstorm in the mountains, but otherwise look for mainly dry weather through the evening.
How hot will it get today? Look for highs ranging from around 90 in southern NH to 85 in areas NE of Augusta. Typically cooler areas along the coast will enjoy temps in the mid to upper 70’s. Dew points in the mid to upper 60’s won’t be quite as brutally oppressive as recent days, but will still make for uncomfortably muggy conditions.
Cooler and drier air arrives tomorrow.
