It's another very uncomfortably hot and humid day out there. At the time of this writing (10:30 am), it is already 87 Degrees at my home in Indian Orchard.
Hot and humid weather will continue through Wednesday with high temperatures this afternoon between 90 and 95 Degrees. High temperatures Wednesday will be around 90 Degrees.
In addition to the heat and humidity, thunderstorms with heavy rainfall and potential flash flooding will be a concern later this afternoon into this evening.
It looks likely that thunderstorms will develop by 3-4 pm across Western and Central Mass and continue until about 10-11 pm this evening. The thunderstorms later this afternoon into this evening will be slow moving and will contain a lot of moisture. This means that the heavy rainfall threat will be quite high and I have a concern that we will see some flash flooding and urban flooding issues with these storms. Frequent lightning is also likely with the thunderstorms later this afternoon and this evening.
The heat and humidity will FINALLY break on Thursday with lots of sunshine expected and high temperatures near 80 Degrees. Partly sunny skies are expected on Friday with high temperatures between 70 and 75 Degrees.
The weekend looks decent with low humidity and comfortable temperatures. Partly sunny skies are expected on both Saturday and Sunday. High temperatures Saturday will be near 75 Degrees. High temperatures Sunday will be between 75 and 80 Degrees.
