Dangerous Heat and Humidity This Week
The heat and humidity are back to round out the summer and forecasters are saying it will get dangerous out there.
We've been no strangers to heat and humidity this summer with what ABC 6 meteorologist Jeff Desnoyers described as more stagnant weather patterns that usual.
Much of July was sticky and gross and though we just enjoyed a week long break from the insane summer heat, it is back in full force this week...and could be dangerous to some.
An excessive heat warning has been issued by the National Weather Service for Eastern Massachusetts from Tuesday morning through Wednesday night.
Temperatures in some areas could even hit 100 degrees over the next couple of days, though most of the SouthCoast probably won't see those highs.
Still it is going to be HOT and humid as well, so take precautions and whatever measures you need to to stay cool.
Avoid outdoor activities, especially those that would have you exerting yourself. You also need to drink plenty of water over the next couple of days, try to avoid direct sunlight and hunker down in air conditioning as much as you can.
Those with asthma or other breathing difficulties may have an especially hard time over the next couple of days, so checking in on these family members is advised as well.
And it doesn't look like we'll see anything but extreme heat most of the week. A cold front is expected late Thursday, so Friday will likely be the first day we see relief from this week's heat.
Good luck out there!
