Extreme Heat Dome to Scorch Northern New England and Southern Canada


Climate change has continued to make headlines. Del Rio, TX had its first ever May extreme heat event. Fort Lauderdale’s hottest May was also hotter than its hottest June. Extreme rainfall brought floods to southern Florida. The first half of June was Phoenix’s hottest on record.

So far, the kind of impressive heat domes that have melted records in the past few years has not materialized in the Northeastern U.S. That will change this week when a major to historic heat dome sets up residence.

Given its positioning, the most extreme temperatures will likely occur across central and upstate New York, northern New England, and southern Quebec. Albany, Burlington, Caribou, Concord, Manchester, Montreal, and Quebec City could break monthly heat records for June. Some areas could even experience their highest temperatures on record.
