6:16 am
coming up, as well so that combination tomorrow has led to a heat advisory, including the city of boston from noon to 7:00, the heat index is going to be up around 100 degrees tomorrow, so we have got this big-time heat on the way. the humidity is working up. the oranges, the reds, the real oppressive humidity, that is still in the process of working in here on a southwesterly wind, so it's getting increasingly sticky, the temperatures hold right around 70 degrees this rn and mid 60s in worcester, it's 72 in orange, and lower 70s in the cape. so it's a mild start, the high temperatures today, not as hart as the past couple days because we are not going to have as much sunshine. low to mid 80s and with the high humidity, it will feel sticky out there today. so the clouds are starting to work in now, and you can see the showers near the albany area, and behind it, there's been a cluster of big thunderstorms. these are continuing to build, and that's a trend for us, going
