WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - People all over western Massachusetts had to suffer through one more day of heat on Saturday, as we made it 7 days in a row with temperatures 90 degrees or hotter.
The 22News Storm Team is tracking the anticipation for eventual relief that's not far away.
It's been a tough week to stay cool all over western Massachusetts.
"Terrible, you just don't want to go out. You're in the house with the air conditioning and it's still hot. You open the door and uggg...that's it I'm going back in." said Yvette Matlock of West Springfield.
After some morning clouds, the sun and heat came back to western Massachusetts, causing the roads to shimmer and air conditioners to work overtime.
While it was a hot week, western Massachusetts didn't break any high temperature records despite hitting 97 degrees on Friday in Chicopee. But relief is in sight.
Cooler and less humid air will settle into western Massachusetts on Sunday, bringing a big change from our recent oppressive weather.
It's something that people are anxiously awaiting after being stuck indoors.
"Freedom! Freedom from my house. I get to go back outside and hopefully get my lawn done and not die in the backyard. So a little break in the weather would be nice." Said Matt Sawyer of West Springfield.
"I might be able to go outside and water my plants and enjoy it. Sit outside on my patio, put the umbrella up. Now I just hibernate."
"I hate it. I'm counting the days or the hours because you promised me it's going to end and so I'm looking forward to it ending," said Marjorie Freshour of Agawam.
Temperatures on Sunday are forecast to be in the 80s.
