The Heat is On !

 

SPRINGFIELD, MASS (WGGB) Get ready for a heat wave! A few sprinkles this morning will give way to sunny hot conditions. It’s cloudy & muggy out there now but the sun will come out and as the temperatures go up the dew points will come down, a bit this afternoon. Either way it will be an uncomfortable afternoon with highs reaching into the low to mid-90s. There could be an isolated storm but most of us will not be gettting wet. There’s about a 10% chance of a storm.  Things will cool off  tonight however you’ll still need to keep the air conditioners cranking. Overnight lows will fall to near 60.

The weekend is looking like a classic beach weekend with lots of sunshine along with highs near 90. Dew points will creep up tomorrow into the low to mid-60s so it will feel a bit more oppressive. There could be an isolated afternoon storm tomorrow but most of us will, once again, being staying rain free! Sunday will be another hot one and will likely be day three of the 90-degree temperatures making it an official heat wave!

Have a great weekend & stay cool!
