First Heat Wave Of The Season On The Way

First Heat Wave Of The Season On The Way

An EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING is in effect for Litchfield, Hartford, Fairfield, New Haven, Middlesex, and New London County.

The heat continues into the week, with temperatures reaching well into the 90s each day.

A multiday heat wave that brought a heat index reading of 112 degrees to Chicago on Saturday will reach its peak in the Northeast on Sunday. "It will go from hot and humid to a little bit cooler, a little bit drier, or more seasonal, somewhere in the low 80s".

Storms are still moving through parts of the Midwest Sunday morning, with additional flash flooding possible.

Kennedy says the weather service could issue a heat advisory for Monday or Tuesday as the index could top 100 degrees. While record temperatures are in the upper 90s to near 100 this time of the year, a few locations may still flirt with record highs. Make sure they have access to the same cooling methods you do, and stay hydrated with water!

Ricky Arnold and Drew Feustel, U.S. astronauts onboard the ISS, will use the Canadarm2 to grab the Dragon spacecraft. And CIMON has trained some time on Earth with German astronaut Alexander Gerst , who is already on the ISS board.

The high temperature Sunday is forecast to be 98 degrees while the city will feel around 105. There will be a "slight" drop in the heat index Monday, but it will still feel like it is in the middle 90°s.

FOX Futurecast has a few showers and thunderstorms moving into our western/northwestern counties after 7 PM. However, any storms look to stay mainly north and west of the I-95 corridor. Temperatures will be slightly cooler on Sunday, but that is a relative term. To reduce risk during outdoor work, the occupational safety and health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments.

SATURDAY - Sunny, Hot and humid, Heat Index 100+. Highs will remain in the upper 80s to around 90.

The heat index reflects not just the actual temperature, but the effect humidity has on conditions, even in the shade.
