Temperatures will once again surge into the 90s as we head into Sunday. Coupled with the high temperatures, humidity values will also increase.

Temperatures on Sunday climbed into the 90s for the second consecutive day. There was a high temperature of 94 degrees at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks.

Along the shoreline, a record-high temperature of 93 degrees occurred in Bridgeport. This shattered the previous record of 88 degrees set just last year.

On Monday, dew points values will rise from the 60s into the low 70s by Monday afternoon, resulting in oppressive humidity.

Temperatures in the 90s and dew point values in the 70s will result in heat index values between 95 and 100 degrees.

A Heat Advisory is in effect for Hartford and Tolland counties where heat index values are expected to be the highest.
