Brace for another scorcher Sunday as Fairfield County will see a another day of 90-degree temperatures — and it will be even hotter on Monday as the heat wave extends into the workweek.
Sunday will be sunny with a high in the low 90s under sunny skies, according to the National Weather Service. It will be partly cloudy with patchy fog overnight as lows drop to about 68.
The National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory for 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday with soaring temperatures and increasing humidity in the forecast. The Heat Index for Monday is 101 with temps in the mid-90s and dewpoints in the low 70s.
The advisory is for Fairfield County, as well as New Haven County and most of the metro New York area.
The combination of heat and humidity will increase the risk for heat-related health issues, especially for the elderly, as well as those working outdoors.
There is a chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly in the afternoon on Monday. Some of the storms could produce gusty winds and heavy rain. Otherwise, it will be partly sunny with a high of around 92 degrees and heat index values near or at 100 degrees.
There will be patchy fog after 9 p.m. Monday with storms possible through midnight.
Tuesday will be mostly sunny with a high over 90 temperatures.
