What sort of mood is there in Act 3, Scene 1?

The mood is very tense. The day is hot, and all know that tempers will flare if Capulets and Montagues see each other in the streets of Verona. Tybalt and Mercutio are especially ready for a fight.

Shakespeare often likes to match the mood of the characters to the weather. At the beginning of the scene, as Benvolio mentions how hot it is, it can be inferred that the young men's tempers are ready to ignite, they are restless, emotions are awhile, youth in hot passions..... No wonder a brawl broke out.

The mood there was tense, the weather was boiling hot and bloodshed was known to happen as the two feuding families crossed paths in Verona, they were bound to crossed swords. Violence start to ignite and goes into balls of furies as taunts were aimed towards each other. Emotions went wild and tension starts arising, no wonder a mass brawl would happen As the situation there started heating up, they started dueling and ended up with deaths and injuries, causing the unnecessary tragedies to happen
