Heat Wave

The Department of Environmental Management has issued an air quality alert for Tuesday.  DEM forecaster, Darren Austin says ozone levels are expected to reach unhealthy territory this afternoon and this evening.

“So what that means is that really people should try to take it easy,” said Austin. “You don’t want to be outside exercising vigorously. Sensitive groups, you could feel the effects of this if you’re outside today breathing this air and asthmatic, but really on alert days, everyone can be impacted.”

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.
