Heat Advisory(1)_1536071253740.png.jpg

Today’s going to be another pretty hot day here in Southern New England, and according to new information, it could be dangerously hot and humid across a bigger area today.

Feel like temperatures could reach the low to mid 90s across our entire area, excluding Block Island.  Bristol County, Massachusetts and the East Bay of Rhode Island are now in the Heat Advisory. 

Once northeast and easterly winds kick in late afternoon, temperatures will drop across southeast Massachusetts, however.

On days like today when the heat index reaches the mid 90s, drink lots of water, take frequent breaks if you work outside, check on the elderly and make sure your pets have cool shelter and lots of water.
