The fourth heat wave of the season is bearing down on the Tri-State area with temperatures expected to hit the mid 90s by Tuesday afternoon.
A heat advisory is in effect through 9 p.m. Tuesday as temperatures are expected to soar into the 90s.
Friday and Saturday are expected to be 92 and 94 degrees. If the forecast holds true, it will officially be a heat wave.
There could be some temporary relief however from a few thunderstorms. However, what could be even more worrisome is a looming strike by Con Edison workers.
Cooling centers will be open on Friday to help New Yorkers beat the heat, as near record-breaking temps continue to suffocate the area.
On Thursday, it will be very hot and humid with a high near the record of 97, last reached in 1988, according to AccuWeather. RealFeel temperatures are expected to be between 100 and 105 on Thursday.
As the mercury rose Thursday, temperatures continued their relentless march upward. The sweltering, baking Tri-State area broke some records as the heat wave continued for a second straight day.
It’s so hot, we could shatter records set more than seven decades ago. The blazing sun made it feel like 100 degrees on Wednesday and it’s not over yet.
