Thursday looks sunny with highs between 95 and 100. A heat advisory has been issued for all of the state Thursday and Friday.
We have a chance of storms on Friday. Highs will be in the lower 90s, but it'll feel like close to 100 with the combination of heat and humidity.
Once we hit three consecutive days with temperatures of 90 degrees or higher, we will officially have our second heat wave of the summer.
Lamont's office said the purpose of the protocol is to ensure that the most vulnerable populations receive protection from the heat. While it's enacted, a system of state agencies, municipalities and other partners coordinate with United Way 211 to make sure cooling centers are available.
Anyone in need of a cooling center can call 211 or look online to find the closest location to you.
