Hot And Humid Weather Returns Today

Hello everyone!

Unfortunately, heat and humidity is making a return for the unofficial last day of summer. Southwesterly breezes will bring temps up to near 90 for most of the area, with slightly cooler temps along the Midcoast and up in the mountains. Dew points in the low 70’s will send heat index temps up to near 100 in the south and 90-95 farther north. This heat can be dangerous if you’re not careful, so stay hydrated and be smart about what you’re doing during the heat of the day.

Most of the area will be dry through the evening hours, with the exception being the mountains where showers and thunderstorms will pop up along an approaching front. Most of the storms will be non-severe with heavy rain and lightning being the main threats, though some gusty winds can’t be ruled out.
