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.
The heat wave is in full effect again on Sunday. It’s sunny, hot and humid, and for the second consecutive day there is a heat advisory in effect for the Tri-State Area.
A heat advisory is in effect until 7:00 p.m., and it’s creating all kinds of problems — from air quality issues to a water shortage in New Jersey to open hydrants in New York City.
The storms brought rain, hail and lightning with them, bringing sudden changes in the sticky weather that lingered for days over the region
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.
While the all-time record of 106 degrees wasn’t reached, residents in the Tri-State were left sweating it out as the mercury soared.
Teterboro, N.J., reached 100 degrees and Central Park hit a high of 97. With the humidity factored in, the 97-degree temperature in Central Park actually felt like 109 degrees.
The health department and emergency management office say cooling centers will be open as the heat index climbs today.
