BOSTON (AP) - Southern New England sweltered through a third day of 90-degree temperatures, setting daily records in Boston and Hartford in the first September heat wave since 1983.

The National Weather Service said Boston and Hartford topped out at 93 on Wednesday. Providence had 90 degrees, just shy of a record.

Some school districts in Connecticut dismissed early for a second day, and at least three did in Massachusetts.

Framingham, Massachusetts, Superintendent Stacy Scott said schools closed early Wednesday over concerns residual heat in buildings from Tuesday would make them even more uncomfortable.

Framingham High School senior Joshua Rosenzweig said “it’s just ridiculously hot.” He said he planned to “take a nice, cold bath” and read a book when he got home.

The heat is expected to ease as a cold front Thursday brings an inch or two of rain.
