First Alert Forecast: mild temperatures and low rain chances through Easter


Our average high temperature for this time of year is 59, so this is typical April stuff here.

A pleasant evening will follow this unseasonably warm afternoon.

The forecast calls for showers likely throughout the day, as well as thunderstorms. With a mostly sunny sky, highs will reach the 60s statewide, and possibly 70 degrees in southern New Hampshire. Thus, dry weather and near or above-average temperatures will remain the rule through Easter weekend. If you're heading out Friday evening, expect conditions like tonight...a warm start, but we'll be cooling into the 60s by 9-10 p.m.

NEXT WEEK: Increased low level moisture and a nearby front will allow for more clouds and chances at scattered showers and storms on Tuesday and Wednesday.

It's going to be wet on Thursday in the north valley, and it could be exciting too, according to the National Weather Service.

Good Friday: We'll see a good mixture of sun and clouds by tomorrow afternoon.

A weak cold front will approach from the north late Sunday.
