Heat Wave Expected to Last for the Week

Our heat wave is expected to persist throughout the rest of the work week.  Temperatures will remain, at least, in the lower 90s until Friday. 

Bill Simpson is the Spokesperson for the National Weather Service in Boston.  Under these conditions, he recommends for everyone to stay hydrated and indoors as much as possible.  Simpson also states the worst time to be outside is as the weather peaks at its highest temperature.

Certainly by 10 o’clock thru 3 or 4 and that’s the max heating for the day.  With the temperatures in the low, perhaps mid-90s and dew point around 70, you’re going to have heat up near 100 degrees.

Simpson also predicts an increasing chance of thunderstorms by Thursday or Friday; however, he says the weather for the weekend is looking slightly better.
