BOSTON (CBS) – Do you remember the heat wave at the beginning of June? It really set the stage for what the rest of June became. So it should come as no surprise that another 90s, including our next heat wave, is forecast towards the end of the month.
A subtropical high known as the Bermuda High will be anchored over the Atlantic for the next 7-10 days. The flow around the high pressure will introduce the heat and moisture.

In 2021, Boston is currently in second place for the warmest month of June ever, which is 72.6 °. Over the next four days, it is very likely that 2021 will beat the warmest June on record. Boston only needs an average of 79.35 degrees per day to break the June record. The daily average is found by taking the high and low and dividing by 2.
Sunday will be the first day of the heat wave, with the worst likely Monday and Tuesday. Highs will rise by the mid-1990s and along with sticky tropical dew points, heat indices will approach three digits. The heat wave will last through Wednesday before a few showers cause the heat wave to end on Thursday.

It is noteworthy that multiple heat waves that occurred exclusively in June (start / end dates both in June) occurred only once in a season – 1941. It will likely happen for 2021.
At the moment there are 8 days with 90 ° + days for Boston for the season. This is well above our previous average of 2 days. Of course we will be increasing the total number this season by July in a large scale.
