It will be a scorching week in Southern New England. Highs will top 90° inland most, if not all, days through Saturday. The low temperature will be in the 70s. If you’re hoping for relief from the heat, it looks like it will arrive with a cold front Saturday night. Several different computer models are in agreement that the front will pass through by Sunday morning, opening the doors to drier/cooler air.
The bright colors on the maps below represent the rain associated with the cold front. High pressure over Canada should move into the Northeast Sunday into Monday.
