FORECAST: Heat wave ends after eight days

The high heat will take a break, and the humidity will ease up too.

CONNECTICUT, USA — This long stretch of heat and humidity is coming to an end. Tuesday makes it eight days in a row with temperatures hitting at least 90 in the Hartford area, and marks the last day of the heat wave.

It's been a remarkable run of warmth, which includes 43 straight days hitting at least 80! The last day with a high temperature below 80 was June 27.

The pattern is changing in a fairly big way, with the heat taking a back seat and the humidity starting to subside.

Wednesday and Thursday will be moderately humid, but feel much better than the tropical humidity we experienced in recent days. 

Wednesday will start with a lot of clouds, then we'll see a mix of sun and clouds develop for the afternoon. High temperatures will be in the low to mid 80s.

Clouds increase Wednesday night, and a few showers or downpours are possible Wednesday night into Thursday. This won't be a washout, but scattered showers are expected.

A much more comfortable airmass looks like it will move in for Friday and the weekend, thanks to Canadian high pressure.
