Massachusetts is in for more heat on Friday. 

The National Weather Service is predicting it will feel between 95 and 100 degrees as the heat and humidity that has been blanketing the region continues. 

Boston remains under a heat emergency, a day after the city set a new record high temperature for Aug. 4. 

Service forecasters said Friday will see even higher humidity, though the max temperatures will be slightly lower. 

The heat will potentially be joined by scattered showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon, mainly north and west of I-95. The service said localized heavy rainfall could be possible at times.
