Real-Feel Temperatures Could Hit 109 Degrees In Massachusetts

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Watch for parts of New England on Monday July 27th, with real-feel temperatures expected to top 100 degrees.

According to NWS Boston, by noon on Sunday, much of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut had reported temperatures in the high-90's. The afternoon high was 99 degrees, recorded in Foxborough, Mass.

While similarly high temperatures are expected across the region on Monday afternoon, NWS said when factoring the relative humidity, the "heat indices" will likely range 105-109 degrees.

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh declared a Heat Emergency in the City on Friday for a second weekend in a row, and said nearly two-dozen community centers will be available to the public as cooling centers.

In anticipation of another heatwave, Gov. Baker cautioned beach-goers last week that if they can't socially distance, capacity limits may be placed on state beaches.
