A Heat Advisory has been issued for Monday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. for eastern Hampden and eastern Hampshire Counties.

Good Sunday evening.  Our first official heat wave of the summer continues. For the 4th day in a row it has made it up into the 90s at Westover in Chicopee. On Thursday we hit 90, on Friday we got up to 96, on Saturday it was 94 degrees and today it was 90.

Skies will become partly cloudy tonight with lows in the lower 60s.

Changes are on the way for Monday with humidity returning. A Heat Advisory has been issued for eastern Hampden and eastern Hampshire Counties due to temperatures that are expected to get up into the lower 90s along with dew points in the upper 60s and lower 70s. With the heat and humidity combined it will feel like the upper 90s and even near 100 degrees at times, especially during the afternoon. Take it slow, drink lots of fluids, and stay in air conditioned areas.

Monday morning expect partly sunny skies with a chance for a passing shower but as we head into the afternoon, clouds will increase turning skies mostly cloudy. During the afternoon and evening hours there is a chance for showers and thunderstorms. Some of the storms could be strong to severe with gusty winds, heavy rain and hail.

Storms will come to an end Monday evening and skies will become partly cloudy. Overnight lows will be in the upper 60s and lower 70s.
