BOSTON (CBS) – The dreary conditions were only discussed last weekend as the afternoon highs were stuck in the 40s and 50s. Worcester set new records in cold and high temperatures and stayed in its 40s all weekend. It even snowed on Stratton Mountain in Vermont on Saturday morning.
Fast forward to this weekend when not only the 90s are expected, but the start of what may be the first heatwave since August 2020.

The first half of the weekend will be a starter for the main course. The maximum values on Saturday will be in the mid to late 80s, in some places it is 90 °, with mostly clear, sunny skies. The humidity will also be higher in the afternoon.
Boston will end the weekend on a HOT note. Highs will easily cross 90 degrees, with some peaking in the mid to low 90s. It’s getting muggy, so temperatures hit the top 90s. This is the beginning of a really warm day.

Heat wave on the horizon …
For a heat wave to be official, a city must have three consecutive days of 90 ° or higher temperatures. It’s likely that Boston will experience its first heat wave of the year Sunday through Tuesday, with an extra day possible on Wednesday.
At the moment Boston has two 90 ° + days for the season, slightly above the annual average of one day so far. In fact, the average first 90 ° day for Boston isn’t until June 8th.
