Heat wave expected to continue on Wednesday

Posted: Updated:

Connecticut residents continue to brace for more hot weather as we've reached our sixth day of 90-degree heat.

The heat wave started last Thursday, and so far Friday has been the hottest day, with temperatures reaching 99 degrees.

Chief Meteorologist Bruce DePrest said there have been 13 days this month so far with highs in the 90s.

Tuesday night will feature mainly clear skies and temperatures will drop back into the 60s overnight.

Another hot day is on tap for Wednesday, with mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the low to middle 90s.

It will be the 7th day of the heat wave, but the humidity will remain fairly low.

"The record high for the Greater Hartford Area for July 27 is 96 degrees, set in 1964," DePrest said.

There is a chance for an isolated storm on Thursday, and Friday could also bring thunderstorms, with temperatures in the 80s.

"A weak storm will form on the front and it could deliver a period of rain or at least a few showers," DePrest said.

The weekend overall is looking good, DePrest said.
