Heat Advisory Issued For Eastern Mass. Amid Expected Heat Wave

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Blazing heat arrived in Massachusetts on Sunday, as a heat wave moved into the region.

The National Weather Service issued a heat advisory for a wide swath of eastern Massachusetts, including much of Greater Boston and the city itself, early Sunday morning.

That advisory also included parts of the lower Pioneer Valley.

Temperatures for Boston are expected to hit 96 degrees on both Sunday and Monday as the heat wave peaks, and temperatures outside of the city and away from the coast could reach as high as 100 degrees on Sunday. Temperatures will likely feel close to 100 everywhere in the heat advisory area.

Boston Acting Mayor Kim Janey declared a heat emergency Saturday, that will extend through Tuesday. The city will have cooling centers open throughout the heat emergency.
