Early Warning Weather Alert: Heat Advisory Issued As Temperatures Expected To Rise | Connecticut News


HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) – Heat and humidity are on the rise again, leading to what is expected to be another heatwave for the state.

A heat advisory was issued for parts of New Haven, Middlesex, New London and Fairfield counties for Wednesday and Thursday.

Meteorologist Mark Dixon said heat of over 90 degrees was expected for the remainder of the week.

We didn’t hit the 90 degree mark on Tuesday, but our fourth heat wave of the year is expected to start Wednesday and last through Friday.

Plus, humidity will stay at or near uncomfortable levels until the end of the week.

Wednesday and Thursday are expected to be dry, but a front is expected to move through the region by the end of the week.

Although the timing is uncertain at this point, there could be isolated storms before and along this front.

Temperatures are expected to reach 90 degrees on Friday, but they could get warmer, depending on how fast the cold front moves across the state.

Relief from the heat and high humidity is on its way for the weekend, as the cold front moves towards southern New England with strong pressure building in the area, introducing drier air.

Saturday will be partially sunny and comfortable with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s.

Temperatures could drop into the 1950s in some areas on Saturday night.

Sunday should be partly sunny and pleasant.

While a shower is possible, most of the day should be partially sunny. The highs will go from the upper 70s to the mid 80s.
