Thunderstorms in New Hampshire
Today’s Topic is Thunderstorms!
Summer in NH brings those triple H days – hazy, hot, and humid! On days like those there’s nothing more welcome than the arrival of a late-afternoon thunderstorm, leaving in its wake cool, refreshing air, scrubbed clean of haze and pollution.
Thunderstorms need three things:
- Moisture—to form clouds and rain.
- Unstable Air—relatively warm air that can rise rapidly.
- Lift—fronts, sea breezes and mountains are capable of lifting air to help form thunderstorms.
More Facts about thunderstorms:
- Thunderstorms may occur singly, in clusters, or in lines.
- Some of the most severe occur when a single thunderstorm affects one location for an extended time.
- Thunderstorms typically produce heavy rain for a brief period, anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.
- Warm, humid conditions are highly favorable for thunderstorm development.
- About 10 percent of thunderstorms are classified as severe—one that produces hail at least three-quarters of an inch in diameter, has winds of 58 miles per hour or higher, or produces a tornado.
