A Heat Advisory remains in effect for eastern Hempen, Hampshire and Franklin Counties from 1 pm until 6 pm this afternoon. In addition an Air Quality Alert has been issued for all of Hempen county, eastern Hampshire and eastern Franklin counties from 11 am until 11 pm today. 

Conditions quickly turn oppressive this morning with highs soaring into the middle 90s in western Mass and much of the Northeast. With dew points nearing 70, our heat index (the way it feels) will near or top 100 degrees!  If you do plan to be outside this afternoon wear light colored clothing and drink plenty of water. Take plenty of breaks too. If you do have health issues try to stay in the air conditioning and do not leave children or pets in the car. The record high for today at Westover Air Reserve Base in Chicopee is 95 set back in 1994. We will be near that later today.

A gusty breeze out of the south-southwest, which will keep the beaches cooler on the south shores this afternoon. Everyone else will bake in the heat and humidity until a cold front arrives from the north. A  front will moves south today. That will bring the chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. Some of these storms could be strong to severe, with the main threat being strong wind gusts and heavy rain. The front should push through by tomorrow ushering in drier air for the middle of the week. The best chance for storms will be from this evening through the first half of tonight. 

With the combination of heat, humidity and storms Westernmassnews has declared today a First Warning Weather Day!

Summer officially arrives at 6:07 am Thursday morning and it looks like we will bring it in with plenty of sunshine and temperatures on Thursday afternoon in the middle to upper 70s. Temperatures get back into the 80s as we head into Friday and into next weekend. 



Today: Mostly sunny, hot and humid. Chance pm shower/storm. Highs: 93-97 (Record high 95)

Tonight: Showers and storms ending, muggy. Lows: 66-70
