7 Day Heat Wave!

Look at a map of current temperatures. We’re surrounded by heat and there’s no escaping it. Tuesday is day three of a seven day long heat wave!  The record longest is 10 days set in 1995. While temperatures will remain fairly similar each day, the humidity is going to climb as the week progresses.  The storm threat will be growing too. While an isolated storm is possible the next two days, more numerous storms will fire up Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Relief from the heat arrives Sunday!

Tonight: Mostly clear, muggy and warm. Low: 68-72

Tomorrow: Mostly sunny, hot and humid. North wind 5 to 10 mph. Slight chance for an afternoon thunderstorm. High: Low to mid 90s. Heat indices in the upper 90s. Records: 96 for Windsor Locks, 94 for Bridgeport.

Wednesday: Mostly sunny, hot and humid. Slight chance for an afternoon thunderstorm. High: Low to mid 90s. Heat indices approaching 100.

Thursday: Partly cloudy, hot and oppressively humid. Chance for a few afternoon thunderstorms. High: Low to mid 90s. Heat indices 100+

Friday: Partly cloudy, very hot and oppressively humid. Scattered afternoon storms, some strong. High: mid to upper 90s.  Heat indices 100+

Saturday: Partly cloudy, hot and oppressively humid. Scattered thunderstorms.  Any storm that develops could be strong to severe. High: Upper 80s to low 90s
