Some impressive heat today invaded New England on this day 6, for some, of the heatwave. Boston was one of the hotter spots reaching 97 at about 2:45 this afternoon. The record for today was 98 so we came up just short and that still stands from 1999. Worcester also came up just short of the record of 93 degrees, touching 92 this afternoon.
Tomorrow won’t be as hot but we will still see 90+ in many spots. A very active coldfront, producing severe weather in Northern New England will work down late tonight and stall over the area tomorrow. The front, along with the heat and high levels of humidity will produce strong to severe thunderstorms in Southern New England tomorrow afternoon. In fact, SPC has us in a slight risk zone for tomorrow…this means that damaging wind and large hail will be possible in any thunderstorm. These storms and the front will be very slow movers and may rain-out evening plans.
On Thursday, behind the front, the will feel so much better…it will take a bit to get back into bright sun and there may even be a lingering shower on the South Coast in the morning but the lower levels of heat and humidity will more than make up for any lack of sun.
Highs pressure settling in from Canada will dominate through the weekend keeping temps around 80 and very pleasant conditions with lots of sunshine!
