NORTH SHORE — The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a hazardous weather outlook until 8 p.m. Sunday, July 5.

“Scattered strong to severe thunderstorms are possible between 2 and 8 p.m. today,” it said.

“Damaging winds and hail are the greatest threats. However a very low risk of a tornado cannot be ruled out,” it added.

For people in coastal New Hampshire and Main, the NWS also a beach hazards statement due to cold water.

“The warm air temperatures in the upper 70s to lower 80s may cause people to underestimate the dangers of the cold water temperatures which are currently only lower 60s,” the NWS said.

“The cold water temperatures can quickly cause hypothermia to anyone immersed in the water,” its statement said.

“When the water temperature is below 70 degrees, hypothermia and loss of dexterity can occur in 45 minutes or less. Anyone on boats or paddlecraft should use extreme caution to avoid this threat,” it added.
