6:18 pm
in to boston, southwest, back towards worcester too. boston for the amount of rain we've seen this month so far, we saw over 2/10 yesterday, but we are well below the average for the year e. we are 7 inches below closing in on 8, and in worcester, even though they've pick up over an inch so far this month, they still are in a very large deficit, so we are going to be dealing with extreme conditions, but there is some good news, and that's th our chances of showers over the next couple of days. we've had a very dry summer. now, the chances are pretty low today and we've seen isolated showers, but they're going to increase tomorrow and then continue as we head into the weekend as the cold front will be pushing on through, and that will spark some showers, some storms, and perhaps even some very heavy couples. the reason why, is because our humidity is so high, we've got so much moisture to work with, we're dealing with dewpoints in the oppressive range. that's going to continue from
6:19 pm
front comes on through, so that's why heavy downpours could be a good 1-2-3 for some -- good thing for some of us in that severe and extreme drought. no showers in boston, we have clouds out there. it's currently 94 degrees. the high today was 96. but look at the dewpoints, in the lower 70's. feeling very tropical, with that wind out of the southwest. so when you combine the heat and the humidity, you get your feels-like conditions. we talked about this in the winter when it's the windchill. in the summer, we call it the heat index and preparing your body for and drinking plenty of water when your heat index is close to 100. it's over 100 in boston, as well as norwood and lawrence, so very oppressive conditions out there. that's why we have the heat advisory that continues until 7:00 p.m., and it's for the majority of central and eastern parts of the state. but it's still going to feel very hot, even after 7:00 p.m., so take precautions if you do have plans outdoors. in our opinion, with the heat and humidity -- now with the heat and humidity bidding on up,
6:20 pm
connecticut, as well as near spring field, but we have a severe thunderstorm warning still in place, this system, this storm has been parked over manchester, connecticut, pushing east ward, very slowly, producing heavy rain over two inches of rain has fallen in that area. somebody was actually struck by lightning, lots of lightning, over 1,000 strikes in a 15-minute period, so we'll continue to monitor that system. otherwise, it is pretty dry for the rest of the region, just feeling pretty oppressive. diminishing overnight as temperatures stay mild. looking at patchy fog to form, indications there could be a scattered shower early in the morning. shiri spear will be here tracking any of the showers, but really what we'll be watching is as we get through the day on friday, the clouds will bubble up, the heat comes back with us. temperatures soaring into the 90's and by the afternoon, risk of showers and thunderstorms developing. a bet they are chance, but very widespread and highs once again into the upper 90's with the humidity feeling like 100, so
6:21 pm
place for tomorrow, starting at 11:00 a.m., going till 7:00 p.m., and then the heat continues into saturday with more showers moving on in and by sunday, we could see some of the steadiest rain overnight into monday and that should bring a break from the heat, as well as drop the humidity by tuesday. over to you. >> blair: president obama once get hitting the links today while on his vacation at martha's vineyard. he tee'd off today with yesterday's playing partners, ray allen and alonzo mourning swell attorney cy walker. on the one day the president did not play went to a private beach. >> it struggles in the snow and extreme cold. but what about the heat. what the mbta is doing right now to keep riders cool and keep the trains on track during this hot stretch. >> blair: but first, as dangerous as heroin or lsd, the important decision handed down today by the obama administration and why it could

over 100. that's why we had that heat advisory that went in to effect at noon, still goes till about 7:00 p.m. and it was for this area shaded in this orange color here, away from the south coast, the cape where temperatures were cooler, thanks to that influence of that southerly wind over the water. but that heat index, although it expires, heat advisory expires at 7:00 p.m., it's still extremely hot out there. this is the current heat index, the combination of temperatures, as well as humidity, making it feel like -- f lawrence, as well as norwood. feels like 102 in boston rights now. so oppressive out there, the air is very thick with those dewpoints in the 70's and the temperature in boston, still at 94 at this hour with that wind out of the southwest. so we're going to hold on to the humidity, staying pretty high in the oppressive range. at least through sunday. and with that, we're also going to be dealing with a very hot conditions, and our chances of rain will actually be increasing as a cold front will be pushing southward. so today, it was a very slight
6:48 pm
tomorrow will be more scattered and then saturday and sunday, looks to see some more widespread, perhaps even heavy rainfall, because there is so much moisture to work with in the air, and speaking of that, the one isolated storm that i've been tracking for the last three hours down in connecticut, where they pick up three inches of rain, because of so much moisture out there. there's still a severe thunderstorm warning in place, for places like marlboro, as well as manchester and a flash about 8:15 p.m. otherwise, you take a look at what else is out there, and not much. sure, we had a few sprinkles that passed on through foxborough, there is some showers pushing on through parts of rhode island, but it's really been not moving too much from the hartford area. taking you through time, best chances of any shower or a storm through the evening, south of the pike, where temperatures and dewpoints are a little bit higher, the dewpoints in the 70's. but most activity will actually
6:49 pm
out a rogue shower or rumble of thunder through the overnight hours, but a lot of us will see clouds, break and areas of fog as temperatures and dewpoints will become quite similar. we'll hold on to the humidity that will be trapped just south of this front, that will eventually push southward, and provide those showers and storms i was talking about. the increased chances of rain. so tabling you through time, this is 7 -- taking you through time, this is 7:00 p.m. tomorrow morning. you have clouds, sunshine, fog out there. by the afternoon, some of the clouds will begin to bubble be across central and northern new england, with the possibility of some strong to even severe storms, but even in our area, we could see some isolated to widely scattered showers and storms develop, and continue through the evening hours. so make sure you want to check your weather app and of course, see where some of those storms will be forming, and if the skies do look threatening, you want to head indoors. perhaps heading indoors is probably your best bet anyways, because the heat and the humidity is going to be oppressive.
