Kids may be returning to school, but summer weather is hanging on. Monday is the start of a three-day heat wave.
Temperatures are expected to hit about 90 degrees across the state Monday, before climbing to the mid-nineties Tuesday and Wednesday. National Weather Service meteorologist Frank Nocera said things are predicted to cool off later in the week with clouds and rain.
“Thursday and Friday there should be scattered showers and thunderstorms around, and it looks widespread enough that most communities will see at least some rainfall,” said Nocera. “And some places could see quite a bit, almost like a tropical air mass, so we could have some heavy downpours.”
Nocera said the rain is much needed. After a lengthy dry spell, most of the state’s rivers, lakes, and streams are well below normal levels.
