We need three days of 90+ temps to call this an official heat wave. One down, two to go. I think we got this one in the bag!
Bridgeport hit a new daily record high temperature on Thursday. 89 degrees breaks the previous record of 87 set back in 2007. On Friday more records will be challenged as temperatures soar into the 90s away from the shoreline. The next couple of days will be partly to mostly sunny and muggy with an isolated thunderstorm late in the day. Showers and thunderstorms will become more numerous late Sunday into Monday as a cold front approaches, bringing an end to the first heat wave of 2013.
