The official start of summer is still a couple weeks away, but that isn't stopping the heat!
Heat Wave Starts the Week
Hingham officially hit 93 on Sunday, starting what will likely be the first day of a heat wave in town.
A heat wave is three or more consecutive days with temperatures at or over 90.
Monday will be sunny, hot, and humid, with temperatures again soaring into the low to middle 90s.
We'll stay in the 70s overnight, so the air conditioning will still be a good idea, if that's an option.
Tuesday will bring daytime temperatures close to 90 as well, but we'll see more clouds. A few pop up showers and storms are possible as well, as we prepare for a change to our weather.
Wednesday will also bring more clouds, with a few more showers or storms possible.
These will not be all day washouts by any means, just typical summer-like days where it may rain for a few minutes at a time, with lots of breaks in between the wet weather.
With more clouds, and a few of the showers around, temperatures will be in the low to middle 80s during the day.
Big Change Late Week
The mid-week clouds and showers will come along with a front. Behind the front things cool way down late week.
On Thursday and Friday temperatures will only be in the low to middle 70s during the day thanks to an onshore wind. In fact, some areas near the Harbor and Crow Point may stay stuck in the 60s!
We'll be able to open the windows back up and give the air conditioning a rest, for sure.
