Another hot day likely Tuesday with high temperatures approaching the lower 90s. High humidity will create a “heat index” of 95 to 100 degrees by Tuesday afternoon
Despite the extreme heat earlier this month, we still haven’t officially had a “Heat Wave”. A heat wave for our area is defined as 3 consecutive days at 90 or higher. It was 90° this past Sunday…We reached 91°Monday…. and we are forecasting 92°. for Tuesday…..this could make it our first heat wave of 2019.
An approaching cold front will bring some relief later this week, but as it moves through New England on Wednesday afternoon and night, it’s likely to bring some scattered showers and thunderstorms. Behind it, the humidity and temperatures will drop for Thursday.
