Heatwave!

A line of damaging thunderstorms is passing through the State tonight they are the leading edge of a very hot airmass that will camp out over New England through the upcoming weekend.

After the fog burns off tomorrow morning, blazing sun will heat us up into the lower 90s.  Along with the heat a vortmax in the mid-levels of the atmosphere will provide enough of a trigger for isolated thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon…if they do form, they may be quite dangerous.

The heat will continue to build on Friday and will likely be the hottest of the four-day stretch with temps climbing into the middle and maybe even upper 90s.  The record for Boston on Friday is 96.

Expect temps in the low 90s both Saturday and Sunday too except in SE MA and close to the coastline where winds won’t be as favorable for 90+ degree heat.

By Sunday evening and more so on Monday, a coldfront with several showers and thunderstorms will start to beat back the heat and bring us back to normal temperature and humidity level.
