Highs in the upper 80s today, showers/storms widespread Friday

Temperatures will likely stay in the middle to lower 70s overnight with elevated humidity. Behind this front, SW winds will push warmer, more humid air into New Hampshire. We do have a chance for showers and storms on Tuesday, with fewer chances Wednesday and Thursday.

Overnight and into Saturday, rain sticks around and could be heavy at times. The remains of Tropical Storm Cindy dumped 6-12 inches of rain across the Gulf States is getting pulled up along a frontal system that is approaching our region.

By tonight, there will be occasional rain and a thunderstorm with locally heavy downpours possible. There will be a good chance for showers and storms Monday afternoon and evening. Models are indicating there might be some sprinkles or a light shower developing during the afternoon, but rain chances are only around 5%. Humidity will be falling during the afternoon with the clearing skies.

In addition to the heat we're also tracking some showers and thunderstorms as we head into the afternoon and evening. By then, our normal daytime highs are in the low 90s and storms are at best on a scattered basis. Readings actually drop below seasonable averages into the upper 70s to near 80 degrees. Saturday afternoon will be warm with highs in the mid to upper 80s and falling humidity. Sunday, all of the clouds and showers will clear out completely.

Mon: High: 85 Mostly cloudy, isolated showers/storms A.M./P.M.

Those storms are likely to start in early afternoon and move west to east across Upstate New York.

Tomorrow night: Mostly cloudy with a chance of showers and storms.
