Heat Advisory And Isolated Storms Today

Heat Advisory And Isolated Storms Today”

"A heat advisory may be needed during some of those periods", according to a hazardous weather outlook issued by the NWS.

Temperatures reached a record-setting 98 degrees in Allentown on Sunday, breaking the old record of 97 set back in 1963.

There may be scattered clouds this afternoon, but abundant sunshine will effectively add another 5 to 15-degrees to the heat indices, making conditions extremely risky.

Friday will be a typical July day again with scattered showers and storms. While it is weakening considerably as it moves towards us, we still run the risk for afternoon and evening showers and t'storms. With heat indexes topping out around 110 at times, there's certainly been no reason to spend too much time outside. Slightly cooler weather is forecast for Monday, but temperatures are expected to remain close to or above 90 through the Fourth of July and possibly into next weekend.

Heat and hazardous weather advisories have been posted across the state as ME braces for another day of sweltering humidity and warm air.

Another hot one today with limited shower and storm chances around.

The high temperature at this time of year is usually around 85 degrees.

Slow down, stay indoors and avoid strenuous exercise during the hottest part of the day. Unfortunately, a cold front roaring through the region is what enacts this change and it will very likely fire up some strong, gusty thunderstorms as we trade out the humid air for the dry, more comfortable stuff.

The longest heat waves on record in CT lasted a total of 10 days.

Partly cloudy and muggy with a 20% chance for a few showers around 9 PM. Also, don't forget to check on the young, the elderly, and pets, all groups more susceptible to the excessive heat.

"Once we head into next week, temps will be a little bit cooler - (we'll) still be above normal, still see highs around 90 into mid-week", he said.

Clouds Saturday blocked just enough sunshine to prevent any record highs from being broken, however, Michael Priante, a metetrologist at WeatherWorks in Hackettstown said a record could be broken in the Lehigh Valley by the end of the day Sunday.
