It will be the hottest week that we've seen so far this summer. This will mean for Monday we are going to keep higher rain chances in the forecast, but the greatest coverage will be along and south of the front.

The danger for heat related illnesses increases dramatically anytime the heat index reaches 105 or higher.

Today expect mostly sunny skies and highs in the mid 90s (slightly warmer than yesterday) with heat indices near 100°. "The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a risky situation in which heat illnesses are possible", according to information posted on the NWS website.

Tuesday night: Mostly clear with a low around 76.

Skies will begin to clear overnight tonight, leaving mostly clear skies. Strong to severe thunderstorms accompanied by strong wind gusts are possible Monday, the service said, with the highest risk in Berkshire and western Franklin and Hampshire counties.

Thursday: Sunny and hot, with a high near 100. Northwest wind around 5 miles per hour becoming light and variable in the evening. Lower 90s are likely from Wednesday into the weekend with increasing humidity.

Sunday, it will be mostly sunny, with a high near 95, the weather service said.

Friday. Mostly sunny and hot, with a high near 101.

Friday night: Mostly clear with a low around 78.

Tomorrow mostly sunny with highs in the mid 90s.
