Your air conditioner can take a well needed siesta Saturday and Sunday.

For the last few days, dew points have registered in the 70's. A dew point of 70 is considered oppressive, according to RyanBretonWX. The heat index has blasted into the mid to upper 90's all across the Granite State. Multiple beaches have shut down due to bacteria and other heat related issues.  Major thunderstorms have ripped across the state, causing many to lose power.

That's about to change. While we endure today and tomorrow with similar heat and high dew points, cooler air will be filtering in to wrap up the work week Friday. According to WMUR News 9, thunderstorms will roll through New Hampshire tomorrow night, and bring cooler air. In fact, a bright and pleasantly warm Friday follows. While temps will still be normal, you'll feel the difference in the air with lower humidity.

Looking ahead, according to WMUR, a stray shower could happen Saturday afternoon in southern New Hampshire. Highs are expected to be in the 70s to lower 80s over the weekend.
