Sunday’s Weather

The high yesterday of 96 broke the record of 95 set in 2018. The peak of the heat will be today, with the possibility of reaching 7 straight days of 90 degrees or greater at both Concord and Manchester, which would be a top 3 longevity heatwave. This would be impressive as we just had 6 consecutive days 2 weeks ago. If we hit 90 on Monday it would make 8 straight days of 90 degrees.

HEAT ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM TONIGHT

Heat index values in the mid to upper 90s are expected in Merrimack, Strafford, Eastern Hillsborough, and Interior Rockingham counties until 8 p.m. tonight.
Hot temperatures and high humidity may cause heat illnesses. Overnight low temperatures will only fall into the upper 60s to mid-70s at times, leading to accumulated heat impact. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives, pets, and neighbors.
