Last update:  6/28 - 7:40 AM

Skies were mostly clear this morning with temps in the upper 50s across southern NH.
Today will be a much more comfortable summer day compared to the last few, with dew points back down in the 40s/50s and temperatures warming into 70s to near 80... aided by a downsloping wind for southern and coastal areas. Looking aloft... a shortwave will be crossing, but given the dry air mass mixed in overnight there won`t be much with it other than some fair weather cumulus clouds, and maybe some sprinkles toward the west early in the day. Winds meanwhile will be refreshing and out of the northwest veering westerly late in the day, just strong enough to keep the seabreeze from making much inroads along the coast.
On Wednesday, another trough axis will approach from the west with surface high pressure centering itself south of New England. Winds will take on a more southerly to southwesterly clip as a result which combined with a warming airmass aloft will make for a little warmer day than today. High temperatures are forecast to reach into the 80s, except for in the western Maine Mountains and portions of Coos Co NH where more clouds limit highs to the 70s. Shower chances will increase from the west with the approaching trough, and remain mostly in the mountain until later in the evening.
Warmer on Thursday, hot and humid on Friday.
