Most extreme heat wave of the year starts todayHARTFORD, CT (WFSB) - What's expected to be the most extreme heat wave of 2019 starts on Friday. Meteorologist Scot Haney said that once the fog burns off, a partly-to-mostly sunny sky will help boost temperatures past 90 degrees. "We’ll end the week with a surge of heat and humidity," Haney said. "In fact, the National Weather Service has already issued an excessive heat warning for the state starting [Friday] and lasting through Sunday." A Channel 3 Early Warning Weather Alert remains in effect because of the predicted heat. For a list of cooling centers, head <a href="https://www.wfsb.com/news/cooling-centers-open-as-state-braces-for-several-days-of/article_4a05efc4-a70f-11e9-a94e-3b18fe576c2a.html" target="_blank">here</a>. While most of Friday is expected to be dry, an isolated late-day storm can't be ruled out. Any storms would develop to the northwest of the state and head its way. "[Saturday] looks to be even hotter, perhaps close to or over 100 [degrees] away from Long Island Sound," Haney said. "If 100 is achieved at Bradley International Airport, the record for July 20 will be tied. It’s from 1991." The last time it reached 100 degrees in Hartford was 2012. The July 20 record for Bridgeport is 95, which was also set it 1991. The heat continues on Sunday. "We can expect more of the same with highs close to those of [Saturday,]" Haney said. "For the 21st of July, the records are 101 for Hartford and 98 for Bridgeport. It may be close!" Combining the heat with humidity will lead to dangerous conditions over the next three days. Haney said heat index values could go as high as 110 degrees. "The brutal heat and humidity ends Monday with the passage of a cold front that will likely produce scattered thunderstorms," Haney said. "Expect highs in the mid-80s." Read the complete technical discussion <a href="https://www.wfsb.com/weather/technical_discussion/" target="_blank">here</a>.

Hartford braces for 50,000 people who will brave the heat for concerts, showsHARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -- The City of Hartford is prepared for another line-up of weekend fun, but this time people will have to contend with extreme heat. More than 50,000 people are expected to visit this weekend. At Xfinity Theatre, they’re preparing for back to back concerts. On Friday, nearly 25,000 people are expected for a sold out “Florida Georgia line” show, and on Saturday, Sheryl Crow takes the stage. The theater is taking extra precautions by setting up misting tents both inside and outside of the theater, and allowing fans to bring as many “sealed” plastic water bottles as they’d like into the concert. With those shows, plus the Greater Hartford Festival of Jazz and Cirque Du Soleil, area hospitals are already on alert. “The hospitals will be prepared to take any additional patients, that’s more than normal because of the excessive heat that we anticipate,” said Hartford Fire Chief Reginald D. Freeman. Ahead of the big weekend, especially with Saturday’s forecast, city leaders took precautions to share what they’re doing to help people escape the heat. Meteorologist Mark Dixon said over the course of the weekend, <a href="https://www.wfsb.com/news/most-extreme-heat-wave-of-the-year-starts-today/article_68f288c0-aa0c-11e9-ad9e-ab4a6464158e.html" target="_blank">the heat combined with high humidity will lead to dangerous conditions</a> as heat index values could go as high as 110 degrees. “We want everyone to come in and enjoy everything that’s going on but we want everyone to be safe,” said Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin. Hartford fire is expected to pass out waters at bus stops, shelters and parks Saturday and Sunday morning. Pools and splash pads are options during scheduled hours, and recreation centers and library branches will turn into cooling centers.
