Primary day in Massachusetts is going to be hot and sticky.

The National Weather Service is predicting Tuesday “will be warm and very humid,” but forecasters said the temperatures Massachusetts residents will experience as they head to the polls will be “somewhat cooler” than what the region experienced on Labor Day.

Most areas will top out in the 80s, while the CT River Valley will reach the low 90s,” the service said. “A Heat Advisory is in effect through 6 p.m. in Connecticut, much of Rhode Island, and part of the CT River Valley in Massachusetts.”

According to the service, slight relief from the heat is only temporary. “Excessive heat and humidity” are expected to return Thursday with some possible showers and thunderstorms.
