I have a beach week planned the week of the 4th of July in Hampton Beach, NH. I know it may be too early to predict but I figured it was worth a shot. The reason I ask, is because prior to July 2018, it always rained on the 4th. However, last year and the year before it was extremely hot and humid so it seems as if there’s been a shift in weather patterns. We are hoping the heat continues on the 4th for this year too! - Kimberly M. Of NH
