Bradley Intl. Airport hit 90 degrees today and will fly will through the 90s Wednesday and Thursday as well. A heat wave is generally defined as three or more days of at least 90 degrees.
Wednesday's temps: Low 90s shoreline, mid and upper 90s inland.
Thursday's temps: 90-100 degrees.
High instability Wednesday. 2000+ CAPE, LI -7. BUT there is no real trigger to start a big outbreak of storms. So.... Any storms will be isolated. MOST OF THE STATE DRY. However, any storm that manages to pop up could be strong or severe with heavy rain, damaging winds, frequent lightning, hail. I'll keep you posted. Otherwise, hot, humid, 90s, record challenging/breaking warmth.
