    Sunday: Dangerous heat with late day storms firing south. Highs in the 90s, with heat indices between 100-110 degrees. (Published Saturday, Aug. 13, 2016)

    A Heat Advisory has been issued for parts of New England on Sunday.

    While Connecticut and Western Massachusetts will continue to bake with highs in the 90s and high humidity, making it feel like 100+, a back door cold front is providing brief relief in Maine, Eastern New Hampshire, and Eastern Massachusetts. Highs there will be in the 60s and 70s with noticeable, but tolerable, humidity. Clouds will also be a bit more stubborn in this area, although there will be some sunny periods.

    Just like past days we're at risk for some passing downpours and storms. The rain will be most widespread in Northern New England, with more isolated storms and downpours developing during the afternoon in Southern New England.

    As has been the case all week, each storm will likely pack tremendous amounts of lightning and will drop a heavy dose of rain in a short period of time. That means flash flooding is possible in localized areas where storms hit.

    The storms that do pop up will be strongest west of Worcester where it's warmest with the most sun. The activity will lose some of its punch as it works towards the cooler coast.

    Everyone sees a return of tropical humidity and highs in the 80s and 90s by Sunday.
