Temps are heating up
Providence, R.I. (WLNE)– It is going to be very hot across southern New England. Clouds filter in a bit today from the east and that helps us stay a few degrees cooler than those who are west of us.
The jet stream is still far to our north and the high pressure system is still controlling our weather here. A lot of sunshine for us, but the heat from the west is driving into us and we won’t see a break from this until Friday.
Dew points are running muggy to tropical like and with the heat that has the heat index level (feels like temps) in the mid 90’s. It will feel hot, hot, hot this week.
