First Warning Weather Day

Severe weather threat over for western Mass

Posted: Updated:

The heat and humidity were on this afternoon! Temperatures reached into the 90s with dew points well into the 60s!  As a front approached the northeast, thunderstorms were kicked off with damage reported in some areas. 

Most of the rain is done for the evening, but we can't rule out an isolated shower or thunderstorm as we go into the overnight.

Because of the storm threat it remains a First Warning Weather Day! 

Severe Thunderstorm Warnings that were issued for parts of Hampden County and Hampshire County earlier today have since expired.

Tomorrow will be hot and a bit less humid with dew points in the lower 60s. We could still see an isolated storm in the afternoon as an upper level system moves through northern New England. The best chance of seeing a storm or two tomorrow will be across Franklin and northern Worcester Counties and points north and east. Temperatures will reach into the middle 90s, officially marking our first heatwave of 2016.

There will be no storms around for Sunday. It will be sunny and still warm but fairly dry with highs near 90 and dew points in the 50s. Sunday will be a bit more comfortable then tomorrow.

It will be hot and humid on Monday with showers and storms likely late in the day and overnight into Tuesday.
