Fifth day questionable for heat wave

Posted: Updated:

Wednesday will be a close call when it comes to extending the second heat wave of the year.

Meteorologist Scot Haney said temperatures will likely peak between 85 and 90 degrees.

“Regardless, it will still be uncomfortably humid,” Haney said. “[Wednesday] will feature a mix of sun and clouds with just the slightest chance for an isolated shower or storm.”

Thursday will be a day to keep an eye on, according to Haney.

“As a storm system slowly approaches, we could see more clouds than sunshine – especially as our flow becomes more southerly,” he explained. “There will also be a continued chance for some isolated storms.”

The storms will be hit or miss.

“As we close out the week on Friday we'll see the best chance for rain with embedded thunderstorms,” Haney said. “At one point our models were indicating a widespread soaking rain. It now appears that the heaviest could stay to our west.  It’s a fluid situation, so stay tuned.”

As far as the weekend is concerned, the cold front that moves in on Friday will likely be slow to exit.

“In fact, it could stall near southern New England, thus not moving very much through the weekend,” Haney said. “If this happens, there will be more clouds than sunshine with a continued chance for at least some showers both Saturday and Sunday.”
