Another significant warm-up is heading our way. If you look at the average mean temperatures so far this meteorological summer we recorded the highest values in Hartford, Blue Hill, Providence, Caribou and Burlington. The 90 degrees count is also quite impressive across many locations in New England. Currently, the top spot is Hartford, Connecticut, with 29 days so far this season at or above 90.
Temperatures over the coming days will continue to climb and we will likely see another stretch in the 90s coming up early this week.
Unsettled weather may return by the end of the week. The prospects of this shower and thunderstorm activity alleviating the drought conditions are low. While some towns may get a little bit of relief, widespread rain does not look likely. Moderate drought conditions take up a large portion of New England with severe drought conditions into northern Maine.
With the unsettled weather temperatures will drop from the 90s back down into the 80s.
