Granite Staters Relish Belated Springtime Weather

White Park visitor

After a long winter and several false starts, it looks like New Hampshire might finally be heading into spring. 

Mild temperatures on Sunday brought many Granite Staters outside to enjoy the weather.  Concord resident Annie Morgan brought her eight-year old son to a city park.  And she was confident that this time, spring was here to stay.  

“Well I’m determined!  It’s not going anywhere," she said with a chuckle.  "No, we’re not getting any more snow, and it’s going to be beautiful!”

And overall, meteorologists at the Mount Washington Observatory agree.  Their forecast calls for highs in the upper 40s in the North Country, upper 50s most areas south of the mountains, and near 60 along the Seacoast today.  And although it will cool down somewhat on Wednesday, by Thursday and Friday, forecasters say the state should be on track for more spring weather.
