After a dreary spring that brought snow to parts of New Hampshire over Memorial Day weekend, a surge of hot and humid air has ushered in the start of the summer season.
A heat wave is declared after three consecutive days of temperatures above 90 degrees, and with temperatures expected to soar into the 90s again on Tuesday and possibly even Wednesday, a heat wave is pretty much a guarantee, according to James Brown, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine.
Students in Goffstown are in school until Friday, while Fremont students will have a half day today before vacation begins.
While the central core of the building has air conditioning, the rest of the school does not.
The heat and humidity will also bring the chance for afternoon thunderstorms, and as the heat continues to build, Brown said the area may experience some air quality concerns.
Temperatures are expected to drop back into the 70s to near 80 by the end of the week and lasting into the weekend.
"Let's face it. The weather was on our side. So goes the weather, so goes the beach," said Doc Noel, president of the Hampton Area Chamber of Commerce, Sun bathers seeking relief packed Hampton Beach again on Monday.
