GRAY — The record-breaking warmth in northern New England is coming to an end.

In Portland, another record did fall today. It was 67 degrees at 1 p.m. at the Portland Jetport, breaking the record of 66 degrees for the day set in 1953.

Concord, N.H., had five consecutive days of hot weather records this week, but today the temperature is coming up shy of the record of 80 degrees for the date.

Forecaster Margaret Curtis from the National Weather Service says a red flag warning was issued today because of high winds, dry conditions and loss of snow cover. That means the forest fire danger is extremely high, and she’s recommending that people avoid any outdoor burning.

Looking ahead, it’ll be cooler and cloudy this weekend.
