2nd Heat Wave of the Summer PossibleJune 29th, 2012 at 8:39 am by Michelle Muscatello under General Talk, Tony's Pinpoint Weather Blog
It’s a muggy and cloudy morning with a few brief showers passing through parts of southern New England. The showers are in response to a hot and humid air mass that is going to unleash some serious heat over the next few days. In fact, today is forecasted to be the 1st of 3-straight 90°+ days. Those temperatures would make it the 2nd heat wave of the summer for inland parts of southern New England. And while temperatures will be hot here… it’s only a fraction of the record (potentially dangerous) heat that’s been gripping the nation’s mid-section and will move into the southeast and mid-Atlantic today–including Washington DC .
You can click on this link from the National Climate Data Center to see all of the 131 records that were broken yesterday–mainly in the Heartland. It hit 114-118 in Kansas!! That makes our 93° forecast high today seem pretty comfortable, eh?!
We’ll break the heat on Monday in New England as a cold front swings through… that should cool our temperatures into the mid 80s for much of next week.
