Temperatures to feel as hot as 104 degrees in Massachusetts Tuesday

The National Weather Service reported later Tuesday morning flooding had occurred in the area along Highway 14. When factoring in the high humidity, it will feel like it is around 105 degrees at the hottest point late this afternoon in many spots.

Peak storm coverage should be Thursday as numerous showers & storms develop, especially afternoon-evening. There's no widespread or organized threat here, but any storm can be locally potent, with heavy rain and frequent lightning the main threats.

Friday will be a typical July day again with scattered showers and storms.

The criteria for an excessive heat warning is a heat index of 105° F or greater that will last for 2 hours or more.

Rainfall should exit with time Friday with cooler & less humid air by the weekend.

Just after winning the UEFA Championship earlier this year, the Portuguese captain had hinted his move from Real Madrid . According to Spanish daily sports programme Jugones , Real Madrid have chose to sell Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus .

The National Weather Service said Monday the hot conditions will persist throughout MA for the fourth straight day, and that in some communities away from the cooling sea breezes, the heat index will break into the triple digits.

Ricketts said that the air temperatures all over the region are in the 90s, with heat indexes between 100 and 113. Some of the storms will be slow-movers bringing lots of rain to some towns while others nearby get nothing at all. There is a good chance of showers and thunderstorms - with some of them expected to brew after dark. Highs for the holiday are likely to reach the lower 90s. The heat is expected to stick around through the Fourth of July. We stay hot and sticky into Independence Day, but thankfully it will be slightly less unforgiving.

On Tuesday, a high near 90 is forecasted with partly sunny skies. Today's high heat prompted the first widespread heat warning since August 2016.

Clouds Saturday blocked just enough sunshine to prevent any record highs from being broken, however, Michael Priante, a metetrologist at WeatherWorks in Hackettstown said a record could be broken in the Lehigh Valley by the end of the day Sunday.

Health officials also advise residents to check on those more at risk from high temperatures - infants and young children, people aged 65 or older, people with chronic medical conditions.
