Stray showers possible this evening, get ready for more heat by late week

Forecast

Prolonged heat wave possible starting Friday...

THIS EVENING: Partly Cloudy, Stray Shower. Hi 86.

TONIGHT: Mostly Clear. Lo 67.

THURSDAY: Hazy & Hot! Hi 89.

Stray showers will remain possible through this evening as an upper level low continues to churn over New England. The loss of daytime heating this evening will allow for any showers to dissipate. It will be another fairly comfortable night with mostly clear skies and lows area-wide in the mid to upper 60s.

Tomorrow looks hot and dry with blazing sun and highs just shy of 90°. Fourth of July weekend will be hazy, hot, and humid with limited rainfall chances again. Friday looks like the hottest day of the stretch with mid-90s on the table. A stray t-storm could develop each afternoon/evening, but the chances look slim. Good news for fireworks displays and outdoor plans…bad news for lawns and gardens. Keep watering that garden as rain chances look quite limited through early next week.

A ridge of high pressure will become reinforced over the northeast US next week which will keep the heat and humidity going along with mainly dry conditions. Our longest 90-degree day streak is 11, and it is possible we get close to that by the end of this heat wave! Find a pool and stay cool!
