THURSDAY- We have got ourselves some high heat on the way for tomorrow and Saturday. Don't let the low to mid 90's fool you though. That may seem hot, but just wait until you figure in the humidity with dewpoints of 70-75 later tomorrow and Saturday. We could be talking about real feel temperatures of 100-105 degrees. It will be really uncomfortable to be outside and for the sensitive groups, it could get downright dangerous. I would suggest that if you have to get your jog in the next couple of days or have to work outside, try and do it before 10AM or after 7PM. If you have to be outside tomorrow, be sure to have on lots of sunscreen and have bottled water with you at all times. It is very easy to get dehydrated and it is really important to wear a hat and light clothing if at all possible.

Thereafter, we get into some storms on Sunday that will likely continue into early next week before we start to see some clearing later next week, but temperatures still look to be very warm through the period as summer is really settling in here in New England. Enjoy it now because this really sultry weather day in and day out is really going to become less and less as we head through the next 4-5 weeks. Enjoy it now if this is your type of weather.

The tropics are busy, but nothing looks too important at this time, so no worries, yet.
