Nice Weekend Weather Predicted for Portsmouth, New Hampshire
It will be a nice weekend to spend some time outdoors in Portsmouth.
Meteorologist Chris Legro of the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine, said on Friday afternoon that on Saturday temperatures will get up into the mid-70s.
There is a chance of rain around dinnertime, but other than that, there should not be much precipitation until Thursday, Legro said.
That means people who attend the 44th annual Market Square Day Festival and 10K Road Race will be dry and comfortable.
The road race is scheduled to start at 8 a.m. The festival will run 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 about 60,000 people typically attend the downtown event to enjoy the entertainment and purchase items from local crafters and merchants.
According to their website, the organization is dedicated to celebrating and sustaining the vitality of Portsmouth's arts, culture and history through events and community collaboration.
In addition to Market Square Day and the road race, Pro Portsmouth also organizes First Night every year.
On Sunday, it will be in the 70s and the air will be slightly drier, Legro said.
There is only a five percent chance of rain predicted, which means it will be another nice day to participate in outdoor activities.
The 13th annual Celebrate Pink 5K Run & Walk is being held on Sunday morning starting at 9 a.m. and it is a fun way to support My Breast Cancer Support, which provides financial and emotional support to breast cancer patients throughout the greater Seacoast area of New Hampshire and southern Maine.
The route takes participants over the Memorial Bridge. It starts and ends at Portsmouth Middle School on Parrott Avenue.
The cost to sign up is $30.
