EARLY WARNING WEATHER ALERT: Heatwave becomes official | New

HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) – The first heat wave of the season for Connecticut went official just before noon.

Ninety degrees have been reached at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, marking the third consecutive day of temperatures over 90 degrees.

Heat advisory remains in place for Hartford and Tolland counties until 8 p.m.

Channel 3 declared an early weather alert for the heat.

Several school districts have either canceled classes or announced early layoffs. See the full list here.

“It’s going to be another tough day there,” meteorologist Scot Haney said.

Temperatures are expected to reach well into the 90s for most of the state.

Haney said the “real feel,” which is the combination of relative humidity and temperature, would be 95 to 99 degrees on Monday.

It will be a little cooler on the shore.

There may be a one-time shower somewhere in the state during the early hours of the afternoon. However, most cities will stay dry.

“From Monday evening to Tuesday morning, [temperatures] come back down, “Haney said.” Then on Tuesday morning we rinse and repeat and start all over. “

That means over 90 degree heat and the potential for disorganized afternoon shower activity.

Wednesday seems to be more or less the same too.

“On Thursday the humidity starts to drop,” Haney said. “The temperatures are dropping on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It will be a good weekend.”

Temperatures for these three days appear to be in the mid-1970s with a decrease in humidity.
