LIKELY HEAT WAVE ON THE WAY:
We will likely get our 2nd heat wave of the summer starting lasting into Tuesday. Remember, you need 3 days in a row of temperatures in the 90s to get a heat wave. Saturday’s high temperatures at TF Green reached the low 90s. This means if we get highs into the 90s on Sunday and Monday, we would get another heat wave. We may actually end up with a 4 day heat wave because Tuesday will likely be in the 90s!
The record for Sunday at TF Green is 96 from 2005; it is possible that we get close to or break the high temperature record. In fact, we could also get near some records on Monday and Tuesday as well.
There is also an air quality alert in effect for southern Rhode Island on Sunday afternoon.
Stay tuned! -Pete Mangione
