For This Afternoon: Hot and humid weather is expected this afternoon under partly sunny skies. High temperatures this afternoon will be between 90 and 95 Degrees. These hot temperatures will combine with humid conditions to produce heat index numbers of 95 to 100 Degrees this afternoon.
Scattered thunderstorms are expected late this afternoon across Western and Central Mass. Given the heat and humidity, the atmosphere will be quite unstable, however, there will likely be weak amounts of shear. This means that while a severe thunderstorm or two with strong winds and hail is possible, widespread severe weather is not expected.
Also, any thunderstorms that do form late this afternoon will be slow moving and thus torrential downpours with localized flooding is possible.
Tonight: Any scattered evening thunderstorms will dissipate by or before 10 pm. Other than that, tonight will be partly cloudy and humid with low temperatures between 67 and 71 Degrees.
Tuesday: Another hot and humid day is expected on Tuesday under partly sunny skies. High temperatures Tuesday afternoon will be between 90 and 95 Degrees along with heat index numbers of 95 to 100 Degrees.
A few thunderstorms are possible during the mid and late afternoon hours of Tuesday, especially across Western Mass and across northern Worcester County.
Wednesday: Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected from late Wednesday morning through Wednesday afternoon and evening as a frontal boundary moves across southern New England. The severe weather threat looks low at this time. Even with that, any thunderstorms Wednesday will be capable of producing heavy downpours.
High temperatures Wednesday will be between 80 and 85 Degrees with humid conditions.
