Hazy, Hot, and Humid

Hazy, hot, and humid conditions are likely from tomorrow through the middle of next week. The a/c's got there break the past five days, but it is back to work for them as they will be working overtime and our electric bills will be going through the roof once again. Power usage will be at a very high level through the stretch.

Tomorrow will be the first day in series of days that are very warm and sticky. It won't be really hot, temperatures will be in the mid 80's. We really start to warm up on Sunday with temperatures in the lower 90's. The humidity will be very high with heat indices in the mid to upper 90's. Monday will be a couple degrees warmer, mainly in the lower 90's again. At this time, there could be some very heavy rain and thunderstorms in northern Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. Some of the high level cloudiness could get involved in the sky here in SNE, so this will limit or cap temperatures in the low to perhaps middle 90's. Otherwise, temperatures could have come close to hitting the century mark on Monday. We have one last real warm day on Tuesday with temperatures getting around 90, or slightly above. If Boston hits 90 degrees all three days, we have got ourselves our second heat wave of the short season so far.

I don't think Boston will do it, but towns just away from the coast, like Bedford, Brockton, and Taunton could easily reach the heat wave status by Tuesday, helping to put this summer in the books as a hot one. Later next week we will cool down a bit, getting back to 80 by Thursday.
