Beyond warm for the weekend
"It is going to be definitely a mid-July type scenario," said Eric Sinsabaugh, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine.
All of southern New Hampshire, except maybe right along the coast, should see temperatures in the low to mid-90s on Saturday, with some scattered showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon.
By late in the day on Sunday, he said the state could be looking at a very strong line of showers and thunderstorms coming through and lasting into Monday.
Sunday's temperatures will be a little cooler, ranging from the mid-80s to near 90 degrees, but still humid, with some mid- to high-level clouds moving in.
By Monday afternoon the front should have moved out, taking the humidity and extreme heat with it, leaving behind more seasonable temperatures and sunshine for the rest of the week.
