A heat wave is defined by 3 or more 90 + degree temperatures. The high temperature forecast for today is for lower 90s for interior Connecticut. A heat advisory continues for northern Connecticut due to the heat index (feels-like temperatures) reaching and exceeding 100 degrees.
The hot temperatures will be accompanied by tropical levels of humidity. Dew point temperatures are expected to remain high - in the upper 60s to lower 70s over the next several days.
