Hot, Sticky Weather Not Going Away Anytime Soon

Weather forecasters say the hot, sticky weather is going to linger this week in New England.

On Sunday, an official heat wave was declared, meaning there has been three days of temperatures of 90 or above. There's no relief in sight. Before it ends, Concord, New Hampshire, could see seven consecutive days of 90-degree weather for the first time in 16 years.

The National Weather Service says Boston also is in the middle of a heat wave.

Over the weekend, cooling centers opened across the region. People were also taking dips in lakes and ponds, and in the ocean to stay cool.

In Connecticut, three of four state parks that closed on Friday because of poor water quality had reopened by Saturday.
