Weather Alert: Indoor temperature warning today

Weather alert: Heat warning for inland areas today. The heat/humidity mix will feel like 95-99 today and Thursday afternoon. Communities in the heat advisory area include Providence, Warwick, West Warwick, Cranston, Woonsocket, Taunton and Attleboro.

Good morning! We’re looking at another very warm and humid day today…and the heat/humidity will continue into Thursday.

In fact, a heat warning has been issued for parts of our region. The heat/humidity mix will feel like 95-100 degrees within Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts this afternoon. Communities like Warwick, Cranston, Providence, Woonsocket and Taunton are likely to see those oppressive feelings as are the temperatures.

Although the temperature was warm Tuesday, Providence did not reach 90 degrees, making it 383 days without a 90-degree temperature reading at TF Green Airport. Could today be the day? It is certainly possible. The highest levels will be between 86-92 inside the country today. Again, dress your kids in shorts and short-sleeved shirts today when you send them to school…and maybe give them an extra bottle of water.
