Third Heat Wave of the Season

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) – We made it into the lower 90s once again today. It’s the third day in a row that temperatures have reached over 90 making it an official heat wave.

It’s the third heat wave of the season and the 13th day that temperatures have reach 90 or higher.

We had one day in May hit 90, 5 in June and 7 so far this month. In an average season we make it above 90 about 12 times.  We may not make it to 90 tomorrow but it looks as though there will at least be a couple of time this coming week that readings will be back about 90 degrees. Stay cool!
