First Alert: Extreme Heat with Humidity Leads to Heat Wave

The NBC Connecticut meteorologists have issued a First Alert for excessive heat that has moved in this weekend. On Sunday, temperatures reached 90 degrees in Windsor Locks and officially created a heat wave.

An excessive heat warning has been issued for most of the state and includes Fairfield, Hartford, Litchfield, Middlesex, New Haven, New London, Tolland and Windham counties. A heat advisory is in effect for the immediate shoreline. 

The worst of a long heat wave is expected on Sunday. The humidity will kick up and the "feels-like" temperatures soar into the triple digits. An excessive heat watch is in effect for most of the state Sunday and Monday, with a heat advisory along the shore. With actual temperatures in the high 90s, it will feel like over 100 degrees inland Sunday.

The heat sticks around with 90s forecasted for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday inland, with a bit of a break along the shoreline.

A cold front and a chance of a storm should offer a break in the heat by next weekend.
