Severe thunderstorms are again working their way across New Hampshire, bringing heavy rain and a chance of flooding in some areas.

Meteorologist Gary Best of Hometown Forecast Services says the storms are the result of a cold front to the west meeting warm, humid air from off the coast. “The actual cold front is still way back across western New York state, and that won’t come through until later on tonight. Then we’re looking at cooler and drier weather for the end of the week.”

The front will also bring cooler temperatures as it moves into New Hampshire. Many areas that saw highs in the 90’s earlier in the week will see more seasonable weather by the weekend.
