Beautiful weather weekend forecast for Portsmouth, New Hampshire
It will be a good weekend to spend some time outdoors in Portsmouth.
Meteorologist Chris Legro of the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine, said Friday afternoon that temperatures would hit the mid-1970s on Saturday.
There is a chance of rain around dinner time, but other than that there shouldn’t be much precipitation until Thursday, Legro said.
This means that people who attend the 44th Annual Market Square Festival and the 10K Road Race will be dry and comfortable.
The start of the road race is scheduled for 8 a.m. The festival will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Market Square Day was the first event produced by the nonprofit organization Pro Portsmouth. It is estimated that around 60,000 people typically attend the downtown event to enjoy the entertainment and purchase items from local artisans and traders.
According to their website, the organization is dedicated to celebrating and maintaining the vitality of the arts, culture and history of Portsmouth through events and community collaboration.
In addition to Market Square Day and the road race, Pro Portsmouth also hosts First Night every year.
Sunday will be in the 70s and the air will be slightly drier, Legro said.
There is only a five percent chance of rain forecast, which means it will be another great day for participating in outdoor activities.
The 13th annual Celebrate the Pink 5K Run and Walk takes place Sunday mornings starting at 9 a.m. and it’s a fun way to support My Breast Cancer Support, which provides financial and emotional support to breast cancer patients in the greater Seacoast area of New Hampshire and from southern Maine.
The route takes participants to the Memorial Bridge. It begins and ends at Portsmouth Middle School on Parrott Avenue.
